Long Time

It's been a long time since my last post.  I can't keep up with my life!  I love this time of year, but there are always so many things going on, such as harvesting, canning and preserving.   I also went to the 6th Annual Quilt Retreat sponsored by Quilts From The Bluffs.

What a great time we all had at the Retreat.  Our theme this year was "Wanda Wonky and the Quilt Factory".  We had fun playing with that.  We had Willie Wonka candies and then Wanda's candy's was a pack of Quilter's candy.  I received a pack of "Shades of Black" by Me & My Sister Designs for Moda along with a spool of Glide thread.

Every year we have done a Quilter's Gift that we exchange via a White Elephant game.   So much fun!  It really helps to break the ice and everyone is laughing so hard by the end.  I ended up with a pack of batiks.  I have more pictures and will do another post soon with those.
