My quilt group, Bias Buddies, had our annual winter retreat. The theme was, "Choc Full of Fun" and man, was it ever! Lots of chocolate! and Lots of fun! We had a couple of guests, a member who moved to SC came up, my cousin from CO flew out and my husband surprised me by flying my friend from Holland over! Of course, time went by way too fast. (It didn't help that I spent the first day on the couch with the flu! But I recovered quickly so I enjoyed the last two days of the retreat.) We played that new Quilt Trivia game and won chocolate along the way........received gifts of mugs filled with hot chocolate mixes, got a gifty bag of chocolate brownie mix, and a wonderful "chocolate kiss" that was actually chocolate fabric wrapped in foil. Our retreat committee did a great job!I worked on my Gratitude blocks (from Judy's blog). I'm way behind on the Hour a day thing, but I am plugging away. This one fulfills a few things...the Hour a Day project, my Quilt 24 challenge (I'm using the feed sack fabrics) and we are going to do this as part of my Stashbuster series with my students. I'm trying to get my students using up their fabrics as they go, so they won't end up with the huge stash that I have. I try to find projects that are easy and fun. I'll send them to Judy's website to get the pattern to complete their quilt.
