Part 2 of the Fabric Stalker Retreat & The You Tube Channel

Well, we did it...we put our 2 "AARP" brains together and figured out how to load a video to our very own You Tube channel!  We will be posting videos of our traveling adventures which will include sightseeing, scenery, reviews on roads, RV/camping spots and QUILT SHOPS!!! I hope I will get to meet some of you along the way and possibly share a little of your show 'n tell on the blog. I also plan on sewing and stitching while traveling...after all I would miss my sewing room too much!!  Check us out at Quilt Roadies and if you want to subscribe you'll get alerts of our future postings.

On to Part 2 of the Fabric Stalker Retreat.  I can't stress enough with the right combination of personalities a quilt retreat can be just what the doctor ordered.  Inspiration, emotional support and laughter...SO MUCH laughter :)

So...what did I accomplish?  I have to say it was a low key retreat for all of us.  When you watch the video you will think...what??? Low key??? look at all they accomplished but in reality what we finished this retreat was so much less than previous retreats.  I think we are just getting more relaxed and don't feel we have to sew 24/7.  My planned agenda really didn't pan out like I thought it would.  With that said, I am very happy with what I worked on.  I finished all my Great Granny Squares, made 2 pillow cases, learned to use triangle paper, made a soup bowl kozy, gave instructions for stitching pillows, tacked down 2 Cuppa BOM blocks,  stitched on a Christmas table topper and, cut out 3 BOM blocks. 

Great Granny block

Enjoy the slide show of what the Fabric Stalkers worked on :)  Also, I apologize for not getting the Give Away together...it was so labor intensive getting the video posted that I was too pooped to figure out what to  include in the Give Away...so as The Woolie is my witness...tomorrow we'll have a give away posted.

I think caffeine through a big straw was step #1 
to completing some stitching projects!
Have a great Tuesday!
