It's retreat time

Believe it or not, now hold your breath, it's retreat time and my sewing machine is in my house and not at the shop! Last year I had this fiasco which lead to this post before retreat, and the year before,this post which continued with this fiasco. I am not doing anything odd or weird between now and the time I leave!

I am very busy getting ready. Because of my mission to give a gift a month, I am going to work on many small projects. That means lots of pre cutting! I hope CCCat manages to keep her stuff to a minimum because with all of the extra thread and batting I need to take, I'll use more than my half of the trunk! Plus 7 days after I get home from retreat my inlaws come for a 2 week visit! Cleaning supplies abound!

I don't know if you've ever heard of the Red Barn Retreat Center but it is an absolutely divine experience. The food is fabulous, the owners incredible and the facility very condusive to accomplishing goals.

I will have pictures tomorrow as I have been busting away here. I have placemats to show and an entire queen sized quilt! I just need to get it bound tomorrow and I will take pictures. Hopefully at the guild meeting tomorrow night I will get good pics of another quilty gift that I've not shown yet.

I am sooooo jealous! My quilting retreat center is my kitchen, which I take over completely with sewing machine and ironing board, and post a "don't expect any cooked food for a few days" sign on the doorway.
