Off to a retreat …

Yes, I’m off to a retreat … from today until Thursday.  I LOVE quilting retreats!  Here is all my sewing stuff – do you think I have enough?   I still need to pack my clothes – but hey, at least I have my priorities in order – right?IMG_1167

Everything is packed up – so I can’t show you up-to-date pictures of what I’ll be working on.  But these projects are in line:

And there are a few other projects also tucked in.  I will be lucky if I finish an eighth of what I am taking!  Or maybe 1/16 th!!!

I did buy some fabric this week – but it’s going to be used to back quilts at the retreat.  So – it doesn’t count.  And, nothing got finished this week.

  1. Hope you are enjoying your retreat and are getting lots of fun sewing done. Congrats on the stash management this year and on your progress with the UFOs. You’ve had a productive 2017 already.


  2. I have to admit to a little jealousy here…LOL…I hope you have fun at retreat! I would definitely over pack, simply because how do you know what you might want to work on, right? It sounds like a fun time and I look forward to reading about your adventures. Thanks for linking to MCM!


  3. So glad to see your packing looks like mine for a retreat! And its not really about clothes is it??? Have a fun and productive retreat!


  4. I get to go to a private retreat next week for a week. DH is hunting and got a suite for us, so I can quilt as much as I want. Now to get everything packed and ready to go.

  6. Hi Gail,
    Ooooooh, looks like so much FUN! I have never been, but can only imagine how much fun they are. Have a blast, safe travels, laugh lots, sew a little, and don’t forget to come home and report to us. ~smile~ Roseanne


  7. Have a wonderful retreat. I love to retreat. And, of course you need to have more projects available just in case you leave a needed piece at home, get bored with it, get really busy and make super progress. Enjoy yourself and your friends.
