A quilt retreat weekend

Got back on Sunday from my first quilt retreat. My dear hubby, still can't believe I stayed up so late, or should I say early, both nights there. Wonders never cease, I'm usually an early to bed kind of gal but was working on a project and enjoying the girls. I did finish the last of my red and white swap blocks and they have been sent on to Kentucky. I'm really looking forward to receiving all of the many blocks from around the globe back.

I also finished the main part of a fun fall quilt while at my retreat. I still need to add borders then quilt it but received a lot of postive feedback and great ideas from the other ladies in attendance. Thanks to Shelley for sending some pictures of me working on this quilt.

I definitely would like to go on a retreat again. I was just amazed to see the beautiful work that the others worked on. It was a fun weekend to just sew, the weather was yucky anyway, so what better thing could I have done and my boys at home survived without me unscathed. They're usually pretty independent but I like to think that I'm needed anyway.

I Can't believe I haven't had a post in so long

Wow, does time fly. I know I've been busy but when I logged on tonight I found out just how long it's been since my last post. Life never seems to slow down, but I guess if it did I wouldn't know what to do with myself. My oldest just finished his middle school football team and now moves onto basketball.

Zach played quarterback some of the time which he just loved. Spencer is gearing up for his big Lego League competition. His team had a practice last Saturday and now knows what work need to be done by next week. He was setting the robot up to complete the mission in this picture.

I myself are looking very much forward to a quilt retreat this weekend. Having the whole weekend to sew will be just wonderful.
