My Bags Are Packed...


...I'm ready to go. Not on a jet plane but in a Honda Accord.  I'm headed out to retreat.  That's right, 4 days of fun with friends~~sewing, laughing, snacking, yakking, and any other ing that enhances our retreat!  Mind you it's only 3 miles from home and I have to come home during the day to check the dogs and chickens and I come home at night to sleep in my own bed but still, I'm at retreat!

I always pack for retreat with a plan of action.  This time I'm working on Pineapple Crazy, Hawaiian Sunset, 2 Sow-A-Long blocks and a few Midget blocks.  I packed my travel sock and maybe I can get that finished. I have just a few rows left on the toe of sock 2. Maybe I'll knit some, maybe not......

In the red Memory Star rolling cart, I have my featherweight, iron and board, lamp, power cord, tool box, greedy gift, under machine pad with pockets and trash bag/pin cushion and my notebook with my blocks cut and ready to sew.

The red bag holds 2 project bins and bins of scraps plus a bag of chocolate covered pretzels.....my retreat guilty pleasure.

Let's get this thing started........I'm Outta Here!!!
