March Quilt Update

Links to Our Quilt World and  Our Quilt Blogs Facebook Groups.  Come be a part of us.  Both groups also can be found at the top of the blog using the tabs.  Any links that you click in this post will open in a DIFFERENT window, allowing you to continue reading this without losing the page.

I have moved the previous posts to the end of the entry.  I hope that you make it that far.

Goals:

Easy Street (ES) back, quilted, bound - back made
Old Tobacco Road (OTR)  - Clues 4, 5 - still dreaming
Allietare (A) - Clue 6 sewn, back, label, binding, quilted, bound -  perhaps my goals are too high
Double Delight (DD) - quilted and bound - haven't used the mid-arm all month
Row Robin #2 - back, label, binding made, quilted and bound - see above
March group project prototype made, kits together - YES
Second Valentine pillow finished - embroidery half finished
Round Robin - finished and in mail - YES!!!!
Bargello - top finished, back made, label made - top finished
Gifts for Ophelia - YES

1st -  March?  Yes, March, and the travel continues on.  I am still at Jen's (if you want to read about my time there, please click on this LINK) and today's task is to draw and iron on the parts for the wool kits for retreat.  Mission accomplished.

2nd -  The kids are all at school.  Yes, breathe a sigh of relief.  Oh my, I did this daily once upon a time.  Moments like this remind me how old I am getting and yet at the same time, I'm pretty sure I could get right back into the rhythm rather quickly.  I love being around my grands - any time, any place.  Okay, stop waxing nostalgic and get to work on these kits.  It's time to cut the bits apart and kit them up.  I also need a prototype made so . . . . . into Jen the supplies go and she is the lucky participant.  Some things CAN be done in bed.

Brazos Retreat - March 2016

It's March 10th and that means it is time for another Brazos retreat.  Woot Woot.  I am amazed at how fast the past month went by but I am indeed ready for some fun with friends in the country.  After dropping Mister at work, pointing my car south, and spending some money on the Chisolm Trail, I arrive to the center as the FOURTH person there.  Goodness.  I hit the ground running and with some help from Stephanie Bowen, we soon have the place up and ready to go.  Whew.

Once my little corner of the world is in place, it's lunch time and a group of us are off to Babes.  Oh yeah.  Gotta tell ya --- best way to start a retreat is with good friends and good food. (Gosh I look large in this picture.)
