Packed and ready to go

Tomorrow begins a three-day quilt retreat!

I'm planning on finishing a number of quilting projects this weekend, one of which has been sitting partially completed for nearly two years. I also want to churn out a stack of receiving blankets, since the flannel's been washed and ready to sew since my mom's birthday in July. I have a number of quilts to bind as part of the guild's service project for a local nursing home. So I think I'll have more than enough to keep me busy through Sunday afternoon.

I had a great time at last year's retreat, and am really looking forward to this weekend. The conference center is only a few miles outside of town, so when Dan picks me up from work at noon tomorrow, I'll be dropped off, checked in, set up and sewing full-steam within the hour.

I was just going through my packing checklist, and was feeling great I had it all done.

Oops. Better add one more small bag -- for a change of clothes, PJs and a toothbrush.

There. NOW I'm ready.

I've always wanted to go on a quilting retreat but the kids were too young or I fear not knowing anyone. Have a great time!

Don't forget the toothbrush! Change of clothes? Who will notice if you have tons of fabric draped around you :)

I hear there is very little sleeping at quilting retreats. You might not need those pajamas. Have fun and sew, sew, sew!

Hope you had a good time at the quilting retreat. I went on a scrapbooking weekend last year and not only had a great time, but got lots accomplished!

I hope you had a great time on weekend. I love to go out with my family specially on weekends. I really enjoyed outing and traveling. It makes me fresh and stress free.
