Lending a hand and sticking my nose in everyones projects was my favorite part - well maybe not, there was constant chatting, healthy gourmet food and an adorable puppy so... it was all frosting really.
WIP from two weeks ago with me finished. Well, sometimes things work out for the better because designing the overdue shams with input and being able to see the quilt again in person made much more sense. I had totally remembered the quilting thread color and loopy loop scale all wrong and would have been bummed if I'd pushed through to get them done at home before our trip.

TNT - me and my machineMy new machine and I are still getting to know each other and the upside is that the overlock stitch was the perfect finish to the inside seams. The downside is that despite trying every foot in the case, I struggled to attach the piping - a lot. Linking up to TNT.
Retreat AdviseOn the subject of gathering for a marathon quilt session, research falls under WIP, right? It does in my mind so here's what I've been up to this week when I wasn't sitting at the machine. Our MQG is in the planning stages of holding our first Quilt Retreat and it's so exciting.
linking up to Lee at Freshly Pieced WIPI'd love your help - since I've never been on a retreat before and chances are many of you have: Tell me what you like best or a bit of advise on making it a success - thanks!
