Retreat update!


 I'm back from our annual Backporch Friends retreat and have some fun pics to share! 


Here is my charity quilt...it's a little 9 patch designed by Terry of Terry's Treasures. I will definitely be doing another one of these!

I completed a few of the projects that I brought with me, although I have ALWAYS brought more than I could ever finish in the 4 days we are there!


An oldie but goodie, the project from the November Thimbleberries 2004 club! 


I am finally adding the buttonholing to a project that's been on my design wall for WAY too long, Gordy's Gang, a wool Halloween wall hanging. THIS WILL be done before this Halloween!


We also had a Jelly Roll Race! It was TOO fun and I love how my top came out! If you're interested in trying one yourself, here's the video from Missouri Star Quilt company! 

 

Love these girls! They are so much fun to sew and spend retreat time with! It's a shame that we only do it once a year, but I will take whatever sewing sista time I can get!!





After returning from the retreat, I am all jazzed up to sew! Hopefully I can keep some of this momentum going all year long and crank out a few other projects...so stay tuned for more finishes to come!
