At the October Retreat I promised myself I would not set up the sewing machine until I had two of my own UFOs finished, all they needed were bindings. Snap Crackle Pop was huge and that took forever, and you can believe I did a Snoopy dance when it was finished. It was even more important because it was a retreat sample!
Next I finished the binding on Key West Tango, a smaller quilt but I was equally as happy to get it finished.
To reward myself for those finishes I used up some of my friend Marge’s UFO blocks and made a few quilts for Bob’s. The first two used up some of her spare Simply Squares blocks and were done before the October Retreat was over. (I only have a pic of one)
The Angels Retreat was next, and I went right to work on another pile of Marge’s blocks and finished this little top. Laurie liked it a lot and offered a donation so she could take it home with her. Anne had brought along some blocks, which I made into this little quilt.
Then I worked on the last binding I had with me, my Mardi Gras quilt. However my fingers were worn out, so I sat it aside and started another project which was to use up a kit I had in my stuff, an incomplete kit from somewhere. (Marge says it is not hers) It was a Christmas stripe which I made three wall hangings from, after a few trips to the Quilt Shack to get some fabrics to go with it.

and then it was time to come home.
I think I did pretty good for three weeks of work, laughing, shopping, eating, more laughing and even some sleeping.
