It was another successful Virtual Retreat! So many people stopped in to say hello. We had people from Germany, the US, Western Canada, and all over Ontario! So nice to see a few new faces join us and to see the regulars! I left at 9 PM both nights, and they were still sewing and chatting!
I didn't end up taking a nap yesterday, but I did take a long walk, and I slept like a log last night. I'm feeling good this morning, and all fired up to get to spin class.
Well, I don't have a super clean cutting table to show off this morning. Nor can I say that I worked on that magazine quilt, and I can't say that I did anything of mine! I trimmed and bound quilts for customers all day! Of course, I'm slow at it, but that's OK.
OH -- this is what I did the day before. See - I totally cleaned up my workspace and shifted all the current paperwork to the table. Now I can only bring out the couple of bits I need to work on, and I have space. In an ideal world, I'd have room on BOTH sides of the keyboard to work, but I manage. I should show you a picture of that keyboard, as many popular keys no longer have writing on them! Not so good for someone not familiar with the keyboard!

Speaking of getting the project bound for Christmas, let's not forget Halloween. This quilt got quilted yesterday, the customer picked it up last night, and the binding is on, and she is busy hand stitching it in place. Just in time for Halloween this coming weekend.

So while I didn't get done what I had hoped to yesterday, I still did things that needed to be done, and I'm perfectly OK with that. Today is Monday sewing, and I'll be working on my magazine quilt. Cleaning off the cutting table may just have to wait a bit, and that's the story of my life!
A HUGE thank you to everyone who attended the Virtual Retreat. It was loads of fun and always so sad to shut the computer off. The room just feels so empty! In case you missed it, the next one is scheduled for November 27 and 28. See you then!!
Well, I'm off to spin class. Yipppeee!!! Not really, but it makes me feel good to get my heart rate up there!
Have a super day!!!
