Exciting News!

Before I go into the exciting news, I want to thank Quiltpixie for the wonderful suggestions! I think the idea of going to a museum is perfect! I love to go and very rarely ever do. So, thank you very much!

Also, I finished the quilted name tag. It didn't turn out as well as I would have hoped, but it will definitely work all the same.
I have the Stairstepper quilt over 75% quilted and hope to work on it tonight. Isn't it amazing though how your day never really goes the way you thought it would? So, best laid plans and all that.

But, first, I have to make some school shirts for the kids. They have youth club tomorrow night at church and the theme is "School Pride"... so, I'm making them shirts. For Hailey I'm also making a ponytail/hair thing and decorating the cuffs of some socks. I'll post a pic when I'm done.
Now, on to the big news! I'm going on my very first quilt retreat! The closest I've ever come to going on one is by reading Jennifer Chiaverini's Elm Creek Quilt books. LOL! It is in October and will be full of all sorts of "quilty" things. I have a lot to do to get ready for it though. I need to find the fabric and pre-cut it for the class I'll take there. I need to get fabric for and make 12 blocks for a block swap. There is also a basket to fill with FQ's that someone will win in a drawing, I need to get the fabric for that as well. I'll post more on these things and on the rest later on. I'm so excited though I've had trouble sleeping at nights. LOL!

glad the museum idea hit the spot :-)

And boy, most of what you need for a quilt retreat is lots of sleep before hand, and a day or two off after so you can stay up all night every night you're there!
