A Busy Thursday and Friday

Do you know what it’s like to get ready for a retreat? Oh ya! On Thursday, I managed to get borders on 2 quilts and they are sandwiched and hopefully will be quilted at the retreat … bobbins are wound.

And then there is the last minute gathering of STUFF … yup, all sorts of STUFF. When you’re one of the co-organizers, there is a LOT of details to attend to. Last minute emails to send out …

I haven’t been on a retreat for almost 2 years. That’s a LONG time for a retreat junkie!

It’s all good!!! I will get it done. Well, most of it anyhow. And of course, I doubt that I’ll finish all 5 or 6 projects that I’m taking with me … but it’s always good to have a variety to choose from! I’ll tell you all about it next week!

A Friday Finish

I made this quilt earlier this year, thinking it would be good for a fat-quarter quilt and a mystery quilt … and then I changed my mind and went in a bit of a different direction for the Summer Mystery. I still like this quilt … and perhaps one day, I’ll write up the directions for it … but not now … not yet … But it did use 7 fat quarters … with little fabric to spare …

  3. I hope you have a wonderful time at your retreat. At the recent retreat I was on I think all of us spent quite a bit of time just talking as most of us hadn’t seen each other for a year and half. I finally had to make a list of what I wanted to take to retreats. I print off the document and check everything off as I pack. I’ve been paring the list of stuff I really don’t need over the years. I too bring more projects than I can possibly make because you never know if you forget a necessary piece or tool, you get bored with one or you just want something different to work on. I always cut kits and that makes it so much easier to get things done. Have fun.

    • Thanks, Bonnie! I did have fun!
      I think you and I think alike! I have a retreat packing list that I send out to attendees. I’m thinking that perhaps I should post it on my blog?


  4. I like your quilt, very pretty with the brown and pink. Have a wonderful time at your retreat! How long is the retreat? You might actually get all those projects finished since you’re excited to be at a retreat again. Happy stitching!
