HST & SSCS

Last weekend my guild had an in-town retreat. It was at one of the ladies home, her dinning/living room made a great work room. A lot of the girls when both days, but one of the good things about it being in-town was that if you couldn't go for the hole time, you could pop in. I was only able to go for a few hour Saturday afternoon and evening. In the afternoon I started work on my SSCS and after a wonderful supper I changed to working on the last set of HST, pinwheels for my floral quilt. It was nice to work on this as the last time I worked on it was at spring retreat. Of course I didn't get as many done as I would like, I must have been chatting too much :)

The biggest thing I notices is that even if I'm do not have the energy to work on quilting I need to make time to play with fabrics. At the retreat all I wanted to do was pat everyones fabric.

I did some more work today on my SSCS but of course I can not show you photos. I am feeling a lot better about getting it done by the deadline after today's effort. I finished the top today, so should have no issues. I am quite please with how it is turning out.

Retreats are always so much fun. Hmmm..patting fabric huh? I think that is a common practice among quilters.

It is amazing how much soothing can be taken from patting fabrics!
