I'm so exhausted from preparing for the retreat - I hope I don't sleep all the way through it! :-)

Here's my huge pile of stuff, waiting by the front door for Robin to pick us up. There's a seat cushion, two quilts for the show-n-tell, a power strip, iron, rulers, pressing mat, and so much more I can't remember now. And of course, all my projects nicely bagged...

Here's my to-do list:
  • 24 moleskine notebook covers
  • One of these quilts
  • an apron
  • start on some half-square-triangles from 6" vintage linen squares
I really had to resist the urge to bring every WIP in my sewing room! I have an irrational fear that I'll run out of things to do. It's crazy - I probably already have a week's worth of sewing in there!

And of course, you can't go to a retreat without bringing munchies!! Peanut butter cup cookies and chex mix. Yum!

Okay, gotta run and pack some clothes now. :-) Have a great weekend!


  1. have so much fun...i can not wait to read all about it.

  2. How fun, I'm going to my first ever retreat this weekend, and after looking at your pile, I think I'll add a quilt or two :) I started out with lots, then downgraded to a little carry-on bag ;)


  3. Have a great time! I'm very envious.

  4. Ooo! I saw your gorgeous zig-zag vintage sheet quilt on Anyone Can Quilt!! That retreat looked fantastic. I hope you were able to get lots and lots done!
