I’m leaving this morning for a retreat!  Here is an early morning picture taken last year from one of the bedrooms at “Over the Rainbow Lodge” on Camano Island.

I’m going to be sewing with friends from British Columbia, Washington, Oregon and California.  A true west-coast group of ladies.

Sew … I’m planning on working on lots of my UFO projects …

  • Orca Bay  – quilting
  • Labyrinth #2 – quilting
  • Smith Mountain Morning – piecing
  • Fractured Paint Brush – piecing

Image result for clipart smileI may take one new project to work on …  Dr. Suess quilt, a bag, or something using some fat quarters or a layer cake or ???  (hmm that’s more than one) … but I wouldn’t want to run out of projects, would I? And, I am going for a week!

New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop


Week 2 is in progress.  If you hopped to all the blogs last week, I’m sure that you saw lots and lots of wonderful eye candy.    I promise that you will see more again this week.

Here are the list of blogs to hop around this week:

    • Thanks, Tish!
      We had a wonderful time – with lots of belly laughs and awesome food. 🙂 However, I think we all ran out of bobbin thread at one time or another! 😦
      Happy Quilting!


  2. Hi Gail,
    Have fun! Sew lots and eat lots and laugh lots. That photo is just gorgeous! I can’t wait to hear about all the things you got accomplished on your week long retreat. ~smile~ Roseanne


  3. Gail that looks like a beautiful place. I think you have more than enough projects, but I would have a hard time concentrating. You might find me in a chair outside just gazing.
