The quilt guild is having a retreat next weekend! We will be at the retreat April 24 -26. I think I'm all ready for it. Bee Sew Inn was having a sale so my friend Carol and I went shopping yesterday. I bought some stabilizer and thread and then Carol reminded me that I needed to buy a comfortable chair for the retreat. We went over to Office Depot and I bought a very comfy chair. I think I have everything I need for the retreat now... except for maybe a new pair of pajamas. Hopefully I can find the time to run out and buy some before Friday. If not, I suppose I can just wear my old ones. One of my friends who is also going on the retreat, is afraid that we will put her bra in the freezer while she sleeps :-) She has never been on a quilt retreat before so I think she's a little nervous about it.
The place where we are having our retreat doesn't get cell phone service (Yeah!) so we will have the whole weekend with no kids or husbands interrupting our extremely important and very serious work.

Plans for today

Today I am going with my husband to a pottery class. He wants a pottery wheel and I thought it would be a good idea to take a pottery class first. He did take a pottery class in High School, but that was about 30 years ago.
The class meets on four Saturdays. I thought the class was an all-day class, but I checked and it only lasts 2.5 hrs. That means I will still have time to do some quilting today :-)

New Blog

I'm starting a brand new blog so I can escape the spammers at the other blog site. It will probably take me a few days to get this blog going, so please be patient. I'll post the jacket tutorial on this blog when I'm ready, instead of posting it on the old blog.
I just received an order from It's my laptop bag! I couldn't find one that my laptop would fit into until a friend told me about this one. I ordered three of the laptop bags because two of my friends wanted one each and it saved us some money on shipping to order them all together. So, Carol and Vickie, I will bring your laptop bags to the guild meeting on Tuesday.
