This past weekend, my husband gifted me a weekend away with my guild to sew my heart out. And I did!
The retreat center was a bit in the country, just a short drive from Houston and far enough to drive down a few gravel roads. Two horses and a donkey lived on the property and you can see them right when you drive up. They were so cute. Apparently, the donkey plays with one of the horses, but I missed it.
It was nice to get away from the noises of the city. I spent about 15 minutes enjoying nature. Then I spent the rest of the time with friends – sewing, eating, fabric shopping. All the essentials.
I packed my favorite WIPs and left my to-do lists behind. I finished up my pickle dish quilt (official “finished quilt top” post along with my tips for putting it together coming soon!). For now here’s a few teaser pics I shared on the Instagram.
(Does it count as a tease if you can see the finished quilt in my Instagram feed?)
Then I put a few more rounds on my courthouse stairs quilt. I just love these colors. It seems that my favorite colors become more beloved when they are mixed, happily with other colors. I think that must be part of the appeal of quilt making.
But of course, time flew by and I didn’t get to many of the projects I had packed as back up projects. (What if I run out of things to do?!)
It was time well spent. Thank you love!
I’m linking up with Lee’s Work in Progress Wednesday.
