These are Baguettes. It means a diamond, or a loaf of bread.

I just got home from the Baguettes winter getaway. We had a great time, and filled the house with our stuff, and laughter. Nan brought a chenille baby quilt she made, to show us. And her stitched picture of her nephew and baby, which is incredible.

Babe made a beautiful felt pillow, and Sarah made 3 of her own.

Nan pieced squares and triangles. Deb made a huge pile of baby quilts.

Julie made a journal cover, as did I. I made 3 rooster quilt tops, painted a collage, and made little folders. So did Julie, and Babe.

We took about 2 tons of stuff to do, ate a lot of chocolate, read 2 stories, and laughed.

This is Irene Gates, and her husband, Dan. She is a wonderful collage artist, and painted these expressive women. They are very nice people from Douglas, Michigan. Dan is involved in the process of finishing her work. We are in a show together at Stone Arch, in Saline. And we spent a fun afternoon and evening yesterday.
