I'm back! Did you miss me?? I was gone for a few days. While I was gone, I scheduled my Friday Books post to go up on 11/11/11 at 11:11 AM. Did anyone notice that cool coincidence?
Why I was out of town: I retreated, as I do annually, into Wisconsin. My quilt guild and I and spent hours and hours sewing, talking, eating, sharing, laughing, sewing, eating, sewing, sewing, sewing. We had a great time! Fun, fun, fun was had by all.
Want to see some pictures of what I made?? OK! Here, for your viewing pleasure, are some of my results of all those hours of sewing.
a twin-size top; pattern is "Five and Dime" by All Washed Up.
my block for the quilt we donate annually to the camp where we stay
the block I made to participate in a block lotto (I did not win, which was fine.. I wasn't crazy about the Christmas fabrics that were chosen for this project)
three blocks I made for a quilt to be made and donated by our guild
six blocks I made for Sunshine; November assignment is fall colors
a Sunshine quilt top to which I added borders
When I returned home on Sunday afternoon after the retreat, I was exhausted! I slept for a couple of hours, and then I spent the rest of the afternoon/evening organizing my retreat photos. That exhausted me for a second time, and I fell gratefully into bed.
Later this week I am going to show you MY MASTERPIECE. It is a quilt top I am quite proud of. Just wait 'til you see it! And, by the way, I'm catching up on my sleep. Always a good thing!
