I know, I know….. I said I was gonna blog again. And here it’s already been a whole week! But alas, life gets in the way sometimes. And I had a retreat to pack for and things to get ready. Because JSS Retreat is a major event!
But you all need to see quilts, don’t you? So without further ado, here is what’s happening on the design walls so far. Hopefully I am attributing them to the correct quilter!
Patti’s. Notice the cute little Inklingo no-waste fussy cut stars! See them in between the blocks?
Dena’s. Stack ‘n whack. Dena is now over the moon with Inklingo and the no waste fussy cutting! She did these blocks before she knew about Inklingo. Silly girl!
And for those of you non-quilter’s out there who read my blog, this is just a small taste of what retreat packing is like.
This small suitcase contains everything I need for the week as far as toiletries, clothing, etc. goes. Pappy wanted to be in the picture too. Because we can’t have a Just Sayin’ Sew blog without a cat pic, right?
This is the amount of quilting related things I brought this time. And my pile is small compared to what some of the gals brought along. Like their whole sewing room. And they bought more fabric when they got here. (And yes, there is a sewing machine in that pile.)
Because retreat is all about the quilting. And the laughter. And the wonderful friendships that we share with our love of quilting as our bond. A diverse group of ladies all brought together with a common love. And oh, my how we’ve laughed!
For those of you who have been here before, here’s a little trip down memory lane. We read this blog post together here today and laughed about that retreat as if it were yesterday. If you were here, you’ll get a big laugh out of remembering it too. I’m talking to you, Vicki. Were your ears burning today? We wondered if Karen told you the retreat dates this year. Ha! Click the link and check it out!
More to come…… we have 2 more full days of fun ahead!
