What's up

What's up, I am going to a retreat for the first time in years this weekend. I am so excited I can burst. 

So I've been getting ready things to work on while I'm there the four days. I'm working on my nested churn dash block.

I have all my RSC14 blocks ready, January through July. I got a late start on things. This block or quilt is called railroad crossing, which has a lot of flying geese in it. And I love making flying geese with my Wing Clipper trimmer by Deb Tucker.
Then I'm starting a rainbow quarter log cabin block that I will be set on point. I saw  it's somewhere on the Internet and I just couldn't get it out of my mind. I wish I could remember where I saw it but all I can do now is go by my memory.
I'm taking some charm packs also to make a disappearing 4-patch quilt, if with high ambitions, I get these other blocks made.
But I can only sit at a machine and sew for so long without having to get up and move. So I'm taking my walking shoes so I can do some walking at the park. Seeing how were going to be out out at a state park. And then I also brought plenty of piecework to do, so if my shoulders start to ache from sitting over the machine I have something to kick back and work on.
A little knitting, applique and embroidery. Right now I'm not sure what I'll feel like working on.


  1. Hope you have a wonderful time, how exciting.

  2. Enjoy your retreat. I just signed up for one in October and can't wait. It is good to have choices and different methods as the need arises.

  3. Oh yes, have a great time at your retreat. They are the best. I've had such good luck with my top finishes at retreats. I hope you make all sorts of progress. Enjoy.


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
