After my whining and sniveling on Tuesday, I'm all better now. I'm packed and almost ready to go. The taco soup is in the crockpot--my contribution for potluck dinner tonight. My bags are packed, my bed is made~~I come home to sleep. Royal Ridges is only a few miles from my bed and I'm a whimp!
I want to be super productive at this retreat so I am going with a plan......scary! So I'll write it here and check back in with how I did. With uninterrupted time to sew and talk and eat and be with great friends, I think I can do it all. Really, I think I can.
1~The Hanky Panky in the back...those blocks were put together at this very same retreat 2 years ago and I did nothing with them. Yesterday I laid them all out on the bed, pinned them in rows and found border fabric to go with it.
2~ The right/front package contains a quilt top that was finished in May 2010. I layed out 10 1/2" blocks to make a backing, they are all pinned in rows and ready to sew together.
3~My friend Sharlene and I bought a kit for a Christmas wallhanging last year and we are going to tag team and make ours this weekend.
4~Laying by project 2 is my fabric kit for this year's BOM Quilt-Addicts blocks. I haven't made my blocks yet so that will be caught up!
5~Back/right project bag is full of flannel blocks for the Split Decision Flannel Quilt top that I cut last month from by bin overflowing with flannel.
6~And the Happy Hour book/kit that I bought several years ago and now it's time to make the quilt. Pat from Bell Creek Quilts posted her top for Design Wall Monday and it reminded me I had this kit~Thanks Pat!
So there it is~!~The Plan! Let's see how I do! Oh I put my knitting in case I had time to work on my socks. Hahahahaha
