Back from retreat

We had a great time this past weekend at the Orange Blossom Retreat even though there were only nine of us. Great food (always too much), great fellowship, and lots accomplished. The weather was fantastic. These are a few of the things I got done this weekend. The Irish Chain is for Don Linn's class at Asilimar I am taking when I get back from Virginia. Lots of space for quilting! The Uncle Sam and the flag are for the Orange Blossom Theme quilt. I caught up on the Common Threads mystery quilt (take note Barbara!) and I began a quilt for Baby Daniel (due toward the end of March-fifth grandchild) and drafted blocks for the Material Girls challenge. It feels so good to have so much accomplished, since I leave for Virginia Wednesday morning (if I can get out of Fresno - weather permitting) and won't be back for two weeks. I'll miss my sewing machine and my husband, of course!
I will try to post while in Virginia.


  1. I'm looking forward to Asilimar. Hope BB will be able to make it.
    Glad you had fun at the retreat. I actually got a lot done at Party Party Party too - but I was gone the rest of the weekend so that's all the sewing I got done.

    Oh, and the mystery catch up is noted.
    Have fun in Virginia - I'll miss you at the Loose Threads meeting.

  2. I wish I could have been at the retreat. Sounds like you had a great weekend. Have fun in Virginia. And see you soon.
