Hello there!! The retreat was nice and relaxing, wayyyy too short though!
Sewing news: Got the quilt done except for handsewing the binding (yahoo!!) That'll get done sometime next week as I have another quilt to handsew before this. I was literally sewing about 5 minutes before I had to pack up to leave. It took me the whole time to machine quilt it. Many, many color changes and um..a few repeated stitching due to unsewing..heh a familiar term for me (shhh can you say frogging or tinking! ;)
We took a break to go to Myrtle Beach to see the Dixie Stampede Christmas Show. Very interesting food, show, and people! Then to a quilt store for a bit of fabric and some buttons perfect for my quilt. I was on the lookout for an LYS, but didn't find one, and not a lot of time to do so as we really wanted to get back to sew.
Knitting news: HA! Like I told you I so overpacked! I only worked on one project (super secret one) and it had to be f---g-d!! Yeppers....a big boo boo that I tell ya about later this week!
So I am off to catch up on a bit of mail and knit!
Thanks everyone for your ideas on the Silk Garden and still getting a few on the Kureyon too!
Sorry no pics, and you'll have to wait for the unveiling of the quilt on Thanksgiving Day! :)
