What a fantastic Virtual Retreat!! I think I accomplished the most I've ever done, and I'm thrilled. We had people from the US, Germany, and across Canada. Loads of fun, and I'm so pleased to say that I've made new friends, and we get to check up on how people are doing in other parts of the world. It's way better than listening to the news! Thanks to everyone who attended.
I also dug out my Brother Label Maker and two rolls of tape. As the girls said -- why "save" that tape for a better purpose -- use it now and get those boxes labeled so NOTHING will ever be lost again! OK -- I just need to refresh the batteries, and I'm good to go.
Let's start with what I didn't get done -- I didn't turn on the embroidery machine. I didn't think I was going to be able to concentrate and chat at the same time. So that will wait for later today.
But I had the serger and the sewing machine going, and this is what happened.
I got the border on the Bonnie and Camille Bee Quilt. When I checked the backing section, I couldn't find anything that worked for this quilt. Then I went back and found a whimsical Sunbonnet Sue in the same colors. Perfect!!! So the binding, backing, and top are now done, and it's moved to the "to be quilted" pile.
