Home from Retreat!

The quilting retreat was so much fun. Got to see some "old" friends and met lots of new ones too.
Angela is the best hostess and we sure appreciate her for making it possible to spend 3 1/2 days sewing, chatting, laughing, shopping, and eating! :)

I made progress on quite a few projects, but didn't take pictures of very many of them...but here are a few I can show you. This is a Thimbleberries tablerunner and in Thimbleberries style...it's ginormous! It still needs to be quilted, but I think I'm really going to like this one!

I also finished assembling my Busy Little Elves quilt. I so love this project!! I had hoped to find border fabric for it during our trip to the LQS, but I didn't see anything I liked. I think I'm going to do a scrappy border with the leftover reds I have. I did find a red and white stripe that will be used for the binding. I'll cut it on the bias and it will look like a candy cane!
I'm not sure how I am going to quilt this one yet...I have never quilted an embroidery project. Anyone have any advice?

I also worked on my Snowman on Parade Block of the Month and I hope to have that one finished before Christmas...stay tuned!

Happy Quilting!
