Did you think I forgot about you?
I spend 4 days last week in Milwaukee with the grandbabies. 
Came home for a day, packed my bags, and then off to our Fall Quilt Retreat.
And did I mention I'm leaving next Friday
for a 10 day visit with my family on the West coast?
Oh yeah, life's moving fast.
I was in charge of the "goody bags" and
door prizes.
A little something to get thru the weekend.

This is what I worked on most of the retreat.
I made 6 Fall tablerunners.
 I'm frantic, stitching the bindings,
 need to finish up before I leave. 
Do you use hair clips instead of pins like I do? 

Check out this cute customer Halloween quilt.
It's All About The Boots!

Can't wait to see it "blinged"!
Love the extra large orange rick rack.

And for all you redwork lovers
did you see Debbie from Busy As Can Be
posted 3 new patterns???
Each pattern cute as the next.
Plus she includes a recipe with each one.
I love tracing the pattern with the red Frixon pen.
It makes it so easy to see.

Aren't they growing up FAST?
Hope this finds you happy in your corner of the world.


  1. Wow, I thought I had been busy!!! Enjoy!!

  2. Love all the projects, especially the redwork and the witch/very cute! What came inside the goodie bag??? I put on a retreat and I'm curious (always looking for good ideas). Where are you going to in CA???

  3. What cute retreat bags. I use only two pins when I'm doing binding and just move one pin over the next as I come to it.This seems to help with the thread getting tangled and no pin pricks.
    Oh yes I like the red work, I'm off over there now for a visit.


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
