Packing & Re-packing
It has been a busy weekend what with the Sisters Folk Festival and packing for the Fabric Stalker Retreat. It is hard to believe the Folk Festival is done for another year. Such a wonderful event that supports the arts in our community and bring people from all over! But, I have moved on to more important decisions...what to take to retreat. I can't believe it is almost Beach Retreat time and it can not come soon enough. I make the most progress on my projects during retreat time.
I have packed and re-packed. Do you do that when you are heading to a retreat? Let me explain...this is not a class type retreat with one project and the supplies for that project. This is a group of friends traveling to a rented beach house bringing whatever we want to work on..OMG! I have changed my mind at least 3 times. Trying to decide which projects I want to finish, start or make some progress on and most important, making sure I don't run out of stuff to do (LOL) I have finally narrowed it down to one over stuffed laundry basket. In this one basket I have a handful of Row by Rows, my Barn BOM, Home For The Holiday, a Buttermilk Basin Mat, Sue Spargo Cuppa blocks, wool Bittersweet Vine, Sashiko block, Kathy Schmitz embroidery, Crabapple Hill embroidery, a baby quilt and a brand new project....what do you think...can I getter done???
On a high note...I stopped by my son's house and my DIL had hung up my wool quilt! It looked so awesome having a place to hang! Quilting is about creating and sharing and I love that I get to see this quilt once in a while!
