Ladies, Retreat is only 16 days away!!! I’m so excited. 

Hmmm.  Maybe I ought to start getting serious about this packing thing?  :-)

Oh my!  Me too!  I was going to make a fresh batch of Roca today but now it is raining a bit again.  Oh!  Now I see some blue sky breaking.  I'll check what clouds looks like coming over the hills from the coast and may try it anyway.  It always an adventure!

In the mean time...  I found the donation quilt (to do quick quilting on) but found I'd already practiced on it AND trimmed it to be ready for binding!  I just need to make the binding to sew on.  I may just bring it to retreat and one of you can help the learn how to sew binding on by machine!  

I inventoried my SS items and I think I'm good!  Should we wrap our items?  So far I'm kind of assuming we'll be dropping goodies in a bag with my SS's name on it.  But if we should do anything special please remind me.  I may tuck in gifty bags just in case...  I did check the SS announcement and didn't see any specifics.

and meds.  Don't forget the meds.  They're kind of important. :-)

I think maybe the last gift should be wrapped.  At least, I am going to wrap mine for the reveal.

Hostesses and locals...  

I'm just thinking here...

Is is too late to ask to borrow someone's machine at retreat?  I may bring a fair amount of non machine work but also would like to use a machine for lotto blocks, binding on a donation quilt and perhaps finish another smaller setting project.  If not, it's fine.  I may still bring my Lucy FW anyway.  After all, she's been attending with me for many years!  

Thanks.
