Getting packed....

Not leaving until Tuesday after work, but my sewing is all packed.

Got the suitcases out along with my design wall.

Projects are cut out.


Houndstooth baby quilt in baby blue and white.....

(I had ordered baby pink and charcoal gray from Hancocks of Paducah, but those colors were back ordered).

I am taking along my hexies to do something mindless....

I figure I can do these while chatting.

Bringing some knitting that I haven't started yet.

I will have to concentrate on this project though...if I even get to it.

Got my shopping list together for the Gathering Baskets (which I have most of the fabric for)  and a Fig Tree quilt that I want to make.

Just need to start thinking about clothing. 

Still waiting to hear from my quilter about my Beyond the Cherry Trees.  Sure hope she gets it done before I leave.  ....tap....tap....tap.....

Getting anxious all the way round. 


  1. Have an AWESOME time!
    Sure hope that BTCT quilt arrives before you leave!

  2. I hope you have a great time and a safe trip!

  3. Love all the projects you have organized and ready to retreats, the days belong to a quilter!
    You just have to post a photo of that Cherry Tree quilt when it arrives - even if at the last minute.

    Have a very fun time!

  4. Now don't rush your longarmer.....heheeh Funny, someone was telling jokes at guild, You know you're a quilter when you take 3 days to pack all your quilting for retreat, and 15 minutes to throw your clothes together for the week! Looks like you will have something to work on the whole time. Have a fab time with your quilty buddies. ps. I can't wait to see your BTCT as well. We haven't seen one machine quilted yet, I might change my mind on hand quilting once I see yours.



My husband built me some shelves for the "stash" closet so that I no longer have to stack all my large Rubbermaids on top of eac...
