And one more day about the retreat. Seriously - if you ever get an opportunity to go on a sewing retreat - DO IT!!!! It is just the best therapy ever. No need to worry about home, the dogs, the significant other, the kids or whatever your worries are. It's like running away from home and if I could figure out how to do it on a permanent basis - well I would be tempted! I'm going to sorely miss that month in PEI! When June comes, I'm going to be dragging!
Here's some more show n tell.
Lynn made excellent progress on her disappearing 4-patch blocks.

Against my wishes, people brought junk food and I'm a sucker for junk food. So yes - I ate all the chocolate covered almonds. (and they were good, but my waist line is protesting!)
|Oooops - two bobbin threads were picked up!|
Now here is an example of one person makes something and the rest follow along. Tish had made Lynn a key fob and of course, everyone got on the bandwagon and four more of us (if not more) made these for our keys. I think we wiped Fabricland out of the hardware!!!
|Key fobs - can you guess which one is mine?|
I'm not sure how this happens but I'm perfectly happy to throw my stuff all over the floor. Why? No idea - it's like my brain is going so fast, it doesn't have time to be neat and tidy. I do it at the office, I do it at home and I do it when I'm at the retreat. Fortunately, I was in the bedroom right across from our sewing area, so it was easy to whip back and forth as needed to get stuff. Ah - just crazy!!!! But FUN FUN FUN!!!! And that is the ultimate goal for any retreat - heck for anything quilt related. If it isn't fun - it isn't worth doing!!!!

Best to get on with the day!!!!
