I'm Out of Here!

I'm going on a quilt retreat this weekend. I couldn't be more excited. We are going to stop at a couple of quilt shops on the way, then spend the weekend sewing our brains out. I am sure there will be some stories and laughs along the way. As you can see, I'm bringing some good reading and a treat as well. I have been going on this annual retreat every year since 1996! Except the year I had newborn twins, but that was a pretty good excuse.

I have packed way too many projects as usual but I don't want to run out of things to if. I am going to try and get Comfort and Joy bound and pick out a bit of the quilting that had tension problems. I also plan to make the hourglass blocks for the red and white quilt. I have packed some fabrics to make more Memory Lane blocks, and I am bringing the Nearly Insane book to make a block or two. I am also bringing hexies, in case the power goes out, I will have some hand work. We are expecting an ice/snow storm tomorrow. I can only hope that it is the non-event that the last one was.

I hope you have a wonderful weekend and get to do a little quilting wherever you spend it!

Enjoy every stitch!


  1. Going on a quilting retreat sounds like a lot of fun. I have not done that in years. A few times when my husband was out of town, I had two friends over for a weekend of quilting and that was fun. Now my husband has no reason to be gone so no more of those weekends. And the one friend moved away.

  2. Wow! Your will certainly be prepared for everything! Hope you gets loads done and have lots of laughs.:)
