Back from Retreat

The retreat was a lot of fun, we had lots of laughs, and I got lots done too. I have been quite tired today. I think that's normal after retreat. Fond it hard to stay focus at work.

On Friday I started the weekend with making PJ bottoms, and although they went together easy and quite quickly, I didn't enjoy making them, so I will stick to sewing quilts. I made all the bears paw for my SIL quilt. I think these are turning out great. I also did some hand work, and quilted the last table topper. Of course we had a shopping break on Saturday.Here is what I picked up. The flower fabric is to go with my purple tulips. I just love that I could find all the colours in one fabric. The only thing that could be better is if it had tulips into it. I guess it will be "Purple tulips in a flower garden", but I think that name would be too long. The pattern and batiks just wanted to come home with me.

I will share more retreat photos later in the week.

You must have had a great time, the blocks are looking really good and the fabric is beautiful. Aren't retreats wonderful?

Good to hear you had a great time. I am back as well and I am so incredibly tired today as well. Love the flower fabric!

Glad you enjoyed your retreat. The quilt shop where I work just hosted our first retreat and it was fun as well. We learned a lot and will improve next time.

The bears paws are great - definitely one for myto-do list. We don't really do retreats in UK. They always sound like great fun.
