It didn't take long to settle in, but I'll admit making the bed on the top bunk on the right wasn't as easy as I would have liked. Cute rooms, huh. They were so rustic looking and cozy, but everything was very modern and clean!
Doesn't that look like fun? That first night, I didn't sleep well... defective mattress that I would swear was made of nothing but rusty metal. So, I got to move to different bunk the second day and oh, it was so much better! And don't you think my Jelly Maker's Cabin quilt looked perfect in that setting? And here are some of the great things that just a few of the ladies worked on....

In response to Linda's question... Melinda is a member of the quilt guild I belong to. She is pictured in a post below, holding the precious animal quilt. I have a feeling we will be seeing her name more and more in the quilt world.

Time to go quilt now and take more pics to share. ;-)
The Autumn SS is basted now. And last night I made the Letha's Electric Fan block. Gotta tell ya, not so fun! I'm glad I did it, but I don't think I'll ever be doing it again. Picture coming soon. I haven't decided what to work on at the church. Probably the 2nd bonus QOYO block. And either my sister's placemats or another Angel Hug quilt. (24" quilts used to present the babies that didn't make it to their mothers. Sometimes they are buried with them, other times it gives the mom something to take home.)
I'm bored with my blog look, so don't be surprised if it changes several times over the next couple of weeks. Just need to find the right fit.
Thank you all so much for sharing your camera info with me. I think I have an idea of one I want. Perhaps I might get one today... you all will be the first to know.
I'm subscribed to Joel Osteen's daily scripture and I really liked the one for today...
"For I know the plans I have for you,”declares the Lord”, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11). That really speaks to me today.

This weekend I finished the 3rd QOYO block, my version of it anyway. I made a bonus block from scraps of the 2nd block and am half way through another bonus block from scraps of the 1st block. That wasn't confusing was it? I'll see if my friend will take some pics and I'll post them for you.
Also went shopping yesterday and got new jammies for the retreat next weekend. I'm so excited and can't wait to go!!!!! Now, if only I can make a decision as to what UFO's to bring... hmm.
I also got some great mail last week. A package from Batik's Plus. Wow, they really know how to package orders, very impressive. I won't tell you about it though, as I really think you should "see" it.
And finally, a bit more wonderful news. My patterns are now being sold in 10 states! Hubby got me a map so I can put pins in each location. Isn't that sweet? I'm thinking of a promotional idea... maybe if someone helps a LQS in their state place an order, I'll send them a free pattern? I really would love to have at least one store in all 50 states, but I would be thrilled with 25! What do you think? Next time I'll post the 10 states, but for now I have a block that I really must work on. I know some of you are familiar with it... Letha's Electric Fan. I found the perfect colors for it... I think.
I hope your week is off to a great start. Oh, and I have an inspirational though to share before I sign off...
