Great Weekend & End of month

well finally the end of the month, well tomorrow is anyway. :) Had the most wonderful time last weekend a few of us friends that got together last sept for a mini retreat decided to do it again. it was so much fun, from someone getting stuck in ditch because of the snow & Ice, to the hhmmmm handy dandy wreaker man ( we don't even go there) that needed a set of suspenders, pushing cars in the snow, fish tailing up the hill to the retreat place ( yep that was me, was fun) and once we all got there we didn't leave. Well a couple gals ventured in to town for a fabric fix & picked us up pizzas she had 4-wheel drive. We had a snow/ice storm come in on a thursday, but us quilters didn't let that slow us down, we are hard core quilters. Or maybe more like we really really wanted to get a away from home. :0) We had fabric, food, fireplace, fun and friends what more could we ask for in a weekend.

Here is the top I got put together still needs a couple borders they didn't get on that weekend cause I didnt' bring the extra fabric. It is called Indian Summer It was in a quilt sampler magazine. going to put a small navy border and then a larger red border.

One of the gals had the quilting fairy visit her and kept bringing her lint rolling brushes, those were mulipling like rabbit, then they all ran away and then showed up again before she traveled home. I leave next weekend for another retreat which I'm sure will be just as so much fun~~~ if you can ever get away to a sewing retreat do it, is lots of fun with friends. Heck just invite some friends over to just sit & sew if you got the room, you'll be so glad you did.
