I always love the fact that after the holidays when winter sets in, I get to look forward to a quilting retreat at the end of January. It’s a great time to be stuck inside, having fun with friends and sewing!
It’s hard to believe that this was our 15th year – time flies! The past few years we have enjoyed wonderful accommodations at the Westin Itasca with a huge, bright sewing area and a staff that is happy to address our whatever we need all weekend long.
This retreat is both fun and productive! As a UFO retreat (UnFinished Object) most of us bring projects that have been around for awhile – or as our friend Maryann says, have made many appearances. Its good to get these things completed and move on to something new.
Some complete entire quilts . . .
and work on blocks . . .
Make pillows . . .
Scarves . . .
And even fish . . .
But the best part is when the “UFO that won’t stay home, one that has made an appearance every year since its debut in 2007 and won’t be invited back” – and is finally finished!
