The retreat - Day Three and Four
ACK ---- So busy sewing there was NO TIME for blogging. Besides someone was in the kitchen where the computer is so I didn't want to disturb them.
Holy cow - wait until you see the pictures of what has been happening. We are a production crew like no other. The quilts that have been made, the laughs we've had - well there is nothing like a retreat to get your spirits up! And we've eaten like kings!
Some of the girls have made several trips to Fabricland and the quilt store. I kept it all to a minimum - I didn't bother with Fabricland this time, but did make the quilt store TWICE!
As much as I like the retreats, it's always fun to go back home and I'm excited to go home and unpack knowing that I'm basically repacking for another retreat next week. I know - don't ask! There are a few projects where I was missing a piece of fabric - that will get cut and perhaps get sewn at home and not come back or it might. But I'm also going to revise how much I bring - I really did go into only TWO project bags so I'm going to try and be a bit more realistic - I'm getting better!
I would say that almost EVERY project that I brought this time had flying geese, half square triangles or stitch and flip. Seriously - EVERY project. I'm kind of tired of that, but these have to be done!
I'm already figuring out what I'm bringing to the next one - I think one new project is going to get put in the tote.
A couple of us went out for a walk yesterday. We were out for 50 minutes - climbed that big hill by the retreat house. It was a glorious day yesterday and how could you not get out! Might have to bring my bike next time.
I try to stay almost to the very end of the check-out time, but there is a quilt show on our way home and what better way to end a retreat than going to a quilt show!
I've been up for hours so far today - all by myself in the sewing room. I'm making good progress on one project until I cut one piece the wrong way so that will have to be recut tonight and get sewn at home. Not bringing that one back here.
On that note - I've TWO hours left and I've still a LOT to get done.
Have a super super day!!!
