I leave tonight for the annual Something To Crow About winter retreat. Fondly known as Quilt Camp. Three days of cutting, pinning, ironing, sewing; eating, talking, napping, getting inspiration. If you're a quilter, you owe it to yourself to go to a retreat at least one time.
I go nearly every year. It's my Christmas (and birthday).
Here's the list of projects I'm bringing.
I know, from prior experience, that I bring too much stuff to retreat. But I also know that I crave variety. Sometime on Saturday afternoon--after sewing for a day and a half--I will want a complete change of pace. One year I even brought a knitting project to fill that "change of pace" piece. I also need a sure-to-be-finished project (like the buck-a-block) so that I have something tangible to show that I *completed*.
Excited to get there and get sewing! Not worried right this minute about how much I can get done from this list... I'll report progress when I get back.
