I went on a weekend retreat with three girlfriends (Pam, Terri, and Pat) over the weekend. I didn't realize how much I needed the down time. It was fabulous. In fact, it was so much fun, and so productive that I only took one picture. Behind that darling Chick quilt is the maker of it, Pat. Isn't it just the cutest baby quilt?

I will tell you however, that I managed to finish each project I toted along. I quilted the cute charm baby quilt for little Gweneth. I finished piecing and then quilted the Christmas in July challenge table runner. I finished "Clue One" of the Lyn Brown Summer Mystery Quilt. Oh, all right, it was only 80 rail fences. But, it's done. And then I sewed a purse for my granddaughter, Rachel. She selected the pattern and fabric on her own. The pattern is free on Robert Kaufman's site. She loves bows. I still want to tweak the purse a bit and glitz the table runner. The fabric is Poodles Noel after all. And, poodles must be jeweled, don't you think?
Happy quilting,

Wow did you have a great weekend. Love your chicky quilt. And I agree with you, sounds like your poodles need to be jeweled.
