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!)


  1. Well, since we are now back from retreat and this is the first time I am seeing this took way too much stuff...didn't you? LOL!!! Can't wait to see you post what you REALLY got finished. :D

  2. Glad you are home safely, I miss you already and can't wait until next time! I sure did take too much, didn't I?? LOL
