First, thank you all for your notes of kindness concerning my very bad time last weekend.
I am overwhelmed...In a good way. =)
This weekend is a women's retreat for the ladies in my church. It will be good to get away and have some time to laugh with those who love me, warts and all....
On to sewing stuff. =)
I want to take something with me to the retreat to keep my fingers busy if I get anxious or just need some quiet time. I am a social introvert....outgoing, talkative (too much, if you know what I mean) and I can have a good time in a large gathering, but then I need some quiet time to recharge.
I spent all day Tuesday trying to decide what to do and make...
Yesterday, I spent all day beginning this project. I have no idea if I will get far enough to take it with me to hand quilt or not, but I am going to try.
I have always L.O.V.E.D this quilt:

And I dug into my scraps. That's so hard for me to do. I worry about being not being matchy-matchy. I love what others can do with their scraps and I decided to just go for it and see what happens.

I need to get busy if I am going to have a quilt top sandwiched and ready for tomorrow. =)
I guess I should pack, too...
And do the last minute things for my son's senior recital that's on Sunday...
Have a great day, everyone!
