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!
