Spring retreat

My quilty sister and I are off again to the mountains of Pennsylvania for our annual Spring retreat. This year the project is some sort of purse/bag and a quilter's carry-all (whatever that means!) I am not terribly concerned with what the projects are as this is really just a great opportunity to get away with my sister for some uninterrupted sewing. Our leader has told us that we will have plenty of time to work on our own projects so I am hoping to get the baby quilt finished so I can get it into the mail to Marlene. I would also love to get the borders on the braid quilt.

Wisely, I only halfway unpacked my suitcase from my weekend trip to Virginia so I have very little packing for this trip. The difficult packing for me is remembering to take everything I think I will possibly need for sewing. With two of us going, it will look like we are taking everything in our sewing studios. Most important thing to take - our chairs! They looked at us like we were crazy last year when we showed up with chairs but the rest of the group realized the wisdom of our decision by Saturday afternoon. Folding chairs are hard and sit way too low!!

I am off now to look for Jen's list of things to take on retreat. If she doesn't have it listed, I know I won't need it!!


  1. I hope you have a great time!! If you do find something missing on the list let me know, Ill be packing up in a few weeks!

  2. Have a great time! I'm about ready to start packing for my retreat too!

  3. I hope you have a wonderful and very relaxing time. You really deserve it!

  4. Have fun on your retreat! Great job on getting the quilt cut out. I hope you get it done on the retreat.
