I'm in!

It's true! I'm in for Gwen Marston's Beaver Island retreat in Michigan next year! This is a picture of the postcard she sent as a confirmation! Way cool! I'm going with my quilting buddy Christine!!!! woohoo!


Took out Kaffe Fassett's Passionate Patchwork from the library and there was a neat idea of an unquilted top used a blind in the window. Just last week I saw Hedgehog's post of her quilt hanging in front of the window and it inspired me to make this:


Also, I finished my Sakura wall hanging:


Also, got my bingo card made for the guild (Fons and Porter, September/October 2006):




Sometimes it feels great to get the little things done!

Good going on your productivity! I am sure that you will love the quilting retreat.

I may be lucky just to get a list done this weekend, much less my projects!!!
