I had a bunch of projects packed, but very little pre-cut, so I had lots of options on what to work on (the good thing is that I never bring too little to a retreat!). I learned from the cold first night last year to bring a quilt top along with me, so it was a good reason to bring the top I shared in yesterday's post and attach the binding and a corner square of fabric to write on a label.
After that, I set to making a few small projects in my goal to make things for gifts this year. I don't have specific recipients earmarked for these items, but will be glad to have them on hand when a birthday comes up.

All in all, it was a good retreat. We all enjoyed each other's company, ate lots of good food, had some laughs, and shared some new tips and tricks. And, we all came home with some new fabric :)
