Well, what can I say, I am soooo excited to be going back to this retreat. I have been preparing for a little over a week, cutting out projects, packing and unpacking my retreat box. Repacking my retreat box, then unpacking it again! Ugh!
What do I want to work on, how many project can I get ready to take with me? Do I have everything I need? Have I made a list? Of course! I don't trust myself to remember EVERYTHING! I think I have 7 or 8 projects ready to go, cut, labled, packaged and packed in their own little world. Working on #9 tonight and hope to get it packed away as well.
Will I be able to complete all of them? Wonder woman I am not, but I do like a great variety to choose from, and honestly, some of them have already been started, those that have an applique, I have three of them, and the appliques are all done and ready to go. Can't wait to see the finished products with those.
Some I have had in process, I am working on a bali batik, Judy Neiemeyer wedding star pattern. Paper piecing is truly not my thing, but I LOVE this quilt, even though my colors are going to be different than the original that I fell in love with.
I have a new quilt with butterflies on it, I am currently cutting and getting ready to pack (#9), so hopefully I will get a chance to work on that.
Leaving on Thursday, haven't even gotten to packing or thinking of packing clothes, etc. I would also love to take treats, but am trying to figure out when I can bake so that they will be very fresh!
Oh, the worries, worries, worries! I know you all laugh, you have all been there, that is for sure, at one time or another. I read Rhonda's post this morning and was laughing all the way through, since I am doing the exact same thing with my lists, packing, unpacking, repacking, taking kitties out of my retreat box, petting the dogs, cutting fabric, oh, and I did I mention, in the midst of all of this, remodeling my home at the same time!
Busy hands keep a gal like me out of trouble. Have a wonderful day, sew a little, live a little, love alot! Oh, did I mention I am going on a retreat! LOL
