Quilt Retreat, Quilting with Friends, Tips

We’re on our way….

Tomorrow’s ‘D’ Day – We’re on the way to our annual quilting retreat at Watson Homestead.  I’ve checked the weather report for the area.  It should be in the high 50’s but with showers and cloudy skies.  (Perfect quilting weather though.)

Most of the time, the leaves are at peak color while we are there.  However with the rain, it looks as though we won’t be able to enjoy them much this year.  In contrast, last year we were surprised by an overnight snowfall. It was a bit early in the season for that much snow and it was gone by the end of the day.  But – what a beautiful sight to wake up to.

I couldn’t resist going for a walk and taking some pictures of a stream that runs through the property.  After my walk, I was able to spend the rest of the day quilting!  Does life get any better than that?

All my projects are ready to go and  have been waiting by the door for the past two days.  I feel like a kid going to summer camp.

Workshop/Retreat tip:  I label everything I take on a retreat with address labels, using just the name from the label.  So many of us use the same tools (rules, mats, etc.) that its easy to pick up something by mistake that belongs to someone else.
