I have a quilt retreat at the end of the week. I am so very excited about it! I don’t think I’ve been on a retreat all year. I usually go at least 2 or 3 times a year, but if you’ve been around for any length of time, you know this has not been a normal year for me. So, I’m trying to figure out what to take with me. I always over pack when it comes to projects. This time I need to:
- make the wallets I’ve been promising my granddaughters
- resize my son’s front curtain
- make a mini for the quiltingfriend’s Christmas party (3 weeks after the retreat! Lord have mercy!)
- Finish a memory/memorial quilt that is so very over due that I am ashamed of myself.
I have things to do just to get ready to go to retreat too, of course. There is the last-minute washing of all the dishes and the packing and loading the car. (I’m already washing up the clothes, so there won’t be a problem there) I also have to remember to take the items I’ll need to make the dinner I’m cooking on Friday night.
I may get to see my dear friend Catherine tomorrow. She is in town because her father-in-law passed on Sunday. His funeral is today. So, I’m all antsy. I want to help her and I really can’t. So, I’m just kind of jumping from one thing to the next. Trying to get all of my postcards listed on my etsy shop, so that I can go on to the next category of items I have to list. This is not a fabulous photo, but I sure did like the sky yesterday. It was just glorious. Every time I looked at it, I was in awe. I thought maybe if I added the photo to the post today, it would calm me down a bit. Hasn’t helped yet. Think I’ll go out for a bit. Maybe even wash a few more clothes.
