So far, as of today, I have sewed a total of 81.5 hours. Now at first that seemed like a lot to me, but when I thought about having attended two quilting retreats, that doesn't seem like too much. I know that I may have missed a few hours here and there, but evidentally I must have talked a lot during the retreats! Ya think? Me????
You may wish to track your sewing time -- it's not too late to begin.

The following picture is made with blocks with silk ribbon embroidery. The quilt is just beautiful -- the picture does not do it justice. Brenda said the quilt is not completed as she has yet to decide on the type of border.
The following are some more pics of quilts that include machine embroidery.
The entire group will be swapping buildings! We are going to make a "My Town" quilt. We put different building names in a hat and drew for the building we would make. What a surprise -- I drew the fire station -- this is very appropriate since my son is a fireman.
There were beautiful quilts for show 'n tell -- beautiful embroidery work. See the pictures in another post.

This next weekend, I will be going on another quilt retreat. This will be our 9th year to get together the 2nd weekend in January. It is really hard to believe that we have been retreating together that long. I'm packed and ready to go! I hope to make some more progress on my son's quilt. There is no internet connection at this retreat, so I'll not be reporting until after I get home.
I wish you all a quilty week!
