True Confessions and Headed to Retreat

I talked about my sewing room in this post and showed you photos of what a wonderful space I have where I can create to my heart's content.  What I didn't tell you is how long it took to get those great photos.  Over a period of several weeks I cleaned and organized one section of the room at a time and then took pics.   I'm sure you fellow quilters figured that out, but to my non-quilty friends I have to admit that I am a fraud.   This is what it looks like most of the time........












Actually, there are times when it's even messier!


I have been cutting out projects to take to Retreat with me this week.  Hopefully, I will get some UFO's completed. 
These are blocks I made for a Batik Wallhanging two years ago.  Now I am thinking that I will just add some borders and make it into a small throw.  






















The bag contains all the batiks I pulled from my stash to go with the blocks.  If you are curious to see what I come up with, you're not alone! 












I'm also taking an I-Spy quilt I started two years ago.....
















.....and some fabrics I bought in Seattle last week for pillowcases.
















The pillowcases will be sent to the Million Pillowcase Challenge so I got some really fun fabrics.
























The last thing I am taking to work on is a Knight Quilt for one of my grandsons.  








Aren't you impressed with how organized I am?  (I am talking about having all the components for my projects all cut out and ready to go....NOT about how my sewing room looks!)
