Sewing With My Friends




Our house guests left early Monday and I had to scramble to prepare for Sit ‘N Sew Day Tuesday plus an additional 2-days of sewing Wednesday and Thursday.  The LQS sponsored an in-house sewing retreat where everyone went home to their own beds at night.  I don’t do well with complicated projects in a retreat setting so I pulled out a little wall quilt kit that I had picked up for a steal at the “Bits and Pieces” booth at a quilt show.  According to the envelope it came in, someone had purchased it in Iowa and it had lived in their stash until it arrived in central Texas and was donated to the guild.  I thought it had a cozy country feel to it and it was a relaxing project.  The pattern is by Little Country Quilts.



I had also kitted up some Jane Stickle blocks and managed to complete two. They are blocks H13 and J7.  I still have several more waiting in the wings.

You managed to complete a lot of things at your mini-retreat! (What a great idea that is... retreat to your LQS to sew, sleep in your own bed at night!)

Love the wall hanging... and admire you tackling Jane Stickle blocks!

I like a retreat where you go home and sleep in your own bed!
