Ok, it's Wednesday and I still haven't written anything down....oh my! I went to retreat last Thursday and just sewed and sewed or should I say, ate and sewed and ate some more and just had the best time! I got so much done and had a great time doing it too. I went to the usual place that I love called Greenbriar Retreat in Eustace, Tx and it is just wonderful to go there. Words just can't describe what a wonderful place this is to go to. The atmosphere is wonderful and the food is divine. I think I gained ten pounds just for the few days I was there. Oh, I was wishing I could stay longer when it was time to go too but I had to face reality and come back home.... I got home and they were asking me to cook. Wow, I got spoiled really quickly! Anyway, I did get lots done and I'll show you my pics tonight when I load them on my computer at home. I used to blog more because I could do it at lunch and post pictures but the work computer no longer likes blogger and it rejects anything I try to post....I'm also having trouble commenting on some blogs but that's another story.
I finished these tops at retreat...
My One Block Wonder is all together and ready to be quilted.
I put together another small scrappy purple quilt.
I put the third top together for Brown Bear. This was the last panel I had and I just put borders around it.
I made backs for all of the quilts above.
I made a quilters pillow. I'm not sure what to call it. It's a big pillow (looks like a big pincushion) and you put it in your lap to work on applique or tatting or hand-work. I love it....
I made another Sock Monkey.
I made several blocks for various projects in progress too. I didn't finish all the blocks but got further along on the projects...
I learned a new, fun block and I'll share that with you later too. Hmm, I don't know if I'm leaving anything out or not but when I post the pictures later, I'll try to remember. Anyway, if you've never been on a retreat, you really need to try to go. It's a lot of fun, fellowship and food. You get to visit with your friends longer and get to know others that you didn't know before. It's like a slumber party for adults and I love to go to these. My mind and my spirit gets refreshed too. I recommend them highly...Well, I will continue this later and show you my projects...til next time, go sew!
