Weekend Plans

Well, here I sit at work thinking about the weekend. I am going on another quilting retreat! This will be the 2nd one for 2008. Wow -- what a way to start out 2008.
This year is the 9th year for this retreat. This was the first quilting retreat that I ever went on. The lady who coordinates the retreat is a teacher, and she decided to host a retreat for some of the ladies who took classes from her -- the rest is history! I made some very lasting friendships through that first retreat 9 years ago.
I am planning to work on Josh's quilt that I started at the retreat last weekend. The pattern is Chexx Mixx by Atkinson Designs and done in reproduction fabrics. I have 10 blocks made -- only 100 to go!!! He wants a king-size quilt! (What we do for our kiddos!). Anyway, I have over half of the blocks cut out so I plan to sew, sew, sew this weekend and make headway.
Be sure to watch my blog for pictures!
