Sewing with Renoir

Good Morning, Quilters!

I’m back from a week in Chicago.  I spent half the week at the BERNINA Ambassador Reunion at their (inspiring) Creative Center (much more on that coming soon) and the other half with my husband, daughter and son taking in the sights, sounds and food of downtown Chicago.

The view from the John Hancock building were spectacular!

The food:  Chicago pizza, Italian beefs, Steak house steak…was amazing!

But my favorite–the 90 minutes we spent at The Art Institute of Chicago.

Ninety minutes were too much for my teenage son!

How I wish I had three days…

to sew with Renoir…and the Impressionists!

It just charges my battery to be there.

Everyone loved the Thorne Miniatures--especially the ones dressed for Christmas.
