Susan, over at Blackberry Creek Home Arts (http://www.blackberrycreek.typepad.com/) is hosting an IN-HOME Quilting Retreat this week, and I have decided to join in! I am busy preparing for it...
Good lighting....check. (put all 60 watters in that new chandelier, pulled in the torch light from the living room, added the little Ott light to the Koala.)
Cutting and Ironing center....Check.
Plenty of thread...Check!
Oh! Projects, of course! I would love to complete the flying geese top:
Or how about putting the Sunshine Quilt together?
Then there are Christmas projects. This one (from last year) still needs binding:
Here is a new project that is completely cut out...a zigzag quilt in the holiday/winter theme:
Oh, dear. I had hoped to work on this Christmas sampler all spring/summer....one block a week. That obviously did not happen. There are applique blocks in this one, and even though the pieces are fused to the background, I need to get the other machine out for stitching the edges down.
One non-quilting item...last year I told a little girl who comes to Bible Study (with her parents on Sunday evenings) that I would make her a bag. Nothing fancy, and it should sew up rather quickly, but I just have not had the time to put it together. Maybe this should be my first project?
