Another weekend bites the dust! Another beautiful Fall weekend.
I left work at about noon on Friday, and took a lovely drive in the country to the Retreat site. Fall has finally reached the low lands, and the colors were awesome.
Look what I found in this tree:
Oh wait, that’s the results of my Friday day/night sewing! My first ever Little Red Schoolhouses. And what better time of year to build them.
I finished this top late Friday night, and started thinking about my next project. I won 7 pieced blocks from Pat at 501 Quilt Blocks several months ago, and they’ve finally become a quilt.
This required not one but two visits to the nearby quilt store, which is actually one half of a General Store in Amish country.
It’s not a fancy shop, but they have some great prices on fabric.
Meanwhile, back at the retreat, there was much sewing, much eating, much talking, and more than a little laughing. We have to take a short walk to the dining hall, so we had time to absorb some beautiful scenery.
I did get started on a third quilt this morning, but I didn’t get very far. I’m working my way through the pile! I tried to start on another very small project, but I decided I didn’t even like it any more, so I donated it to the chairperson of the raffle committee. One more off the list!
Off to catch up on some blog reading now. Did I miss anything excited over the weekend?
Always be Kind……..Sunny
