Still hours of sewing ahead until everyone packs up and heads home on Sunday. But some people will have to put their noses to the grindstone to finish their projects ... especially those who've spent more time shopping and not as much sewing today! But it's all fun, right?
Everyone loved their name tags and I was delighted to hear that they keep them and display them after the retreat! So ... what will I make for November ... it has to be spectacular and easy as there are close to a hundred people coming!
I love that friends bring gifts to exchange with each other ... like the sundae pincushions that are on the cover of Quilts and More ... or the pincushions on a clamp. Too cute. Well over half the group took part in the Spring container exchange where they brought a fun basket or bucket, picked a name, and then have been dropping in surprises throughout the weekend when no one is looking. Fun fun!
Of course ... it's all about the projects that everyone is working on ... rainbows of colors ... challenging techniques ... the sense of accomplishment when another is done.
I'm working on a new pattern I discovered in California ... Crazy for You ... I've made it out of Moda's Blush fabric ... the patterns arrived right before we left for the retreat. Another thing that finally came is our twelve new colors of rick rack! We're pretty excited about that. But right now it's time to get back to the retreat room and stitch some more. Time goes so fast on the retreat!!
