Last Friday I headed east to join my quilting friends for an annual retreat. I am not quilting much these days and with the chaos and stress that has been my life lately, I contemplated skipping this year. In the end, I was happy that I went. I stitched up four new project bags, a pair of pants for our tiny person, and a gadget bag that was much fussier than I would normally tackle but since I sewed this one alongside one of my friends so it was fun. There was a fair amount of unsewing (the quilting equivalent of unraveling). There was also good food, catching up, coffee, wine, and plenty of laughter.
Between sewing projects, I made some good progress on my most recent knit. I don’t think I will finish before I leave but this could be my travel knitting, at least for the first part of my trip. Then I will need to acquire the materials for another project once I get to Shetland. I still need to make some final decisions on travel clothing. I have two smallish books to take and leave along the way and two audio books on my phone. Departure time is so close!
Thanks for hosting us Kat!
