Heading Out

This was our first full week of school, so I'm feeling a little discombobulated. After a layabout summer it takes some adjustment to get used to rising early and putting in a full day's work again.

Two good things this week: I got my Blooming Nine Patch back from the longarmer and I FINALLY got the quiltalong nine patch top put together (except for the border, a minor technicality). No pictures yet, but they're coming soon.

This morning I'm heading out for a mini-retreat with my weekly sewing group. This is the one that takes place in the quilting shop that has an apartment on the second floor. If you've ever fantasized about living in a quilt shop, then this retreat is for you. We sew in the shop's classroom all day, then sleep under their beautiful quilts in the apartment all night.

I'm taking along my new Kaffe Fassett fabrics to make a bag, my Provence eight-pointed stars, my current hand quilting project, and some knitting. Is that enough for a 24 hour retreat? I'm just about packed up and getting ready to head out the door.

Have a great weekend!

The retreat sounds like such fun! I'd love to do something like this - but will have to wait a few years, I think!

That sounds so fun. I'm so jealous! Hope you're having a great weekend at your retreat!
