What a great retreat! Lots of laughs thats for sure!!!

Our Fall retreat (house photo) is done!
We had an awesome time and there is much to show.
I will go through ALL my photos tomorrow....
But I shall show you a few things... 8-)

First up is the Sports Sudoku Quilt.
(last time you see this quilt... honest!)
Done (last week), donated on Friday, and out of our group's hands!
Then there is my first finishes of the weekend. I had made 2 fund-raising bags last week or so, but managed 3 more bags by lunch time Saturday... Yaaaaaaaay.... DONE! 8-)I then worked on a UFO that has been around for a while.
Pg's order for all at the weekend was, "Get'er done!!!"
We were all very productive! 8-)

I joined all my pieces in rows. (Made from 3 charm packs.) Got this part done just before getting ready to head on home today... Feels good! 8-)
Anyway, I have 3 boarders to add and the quilt-top will be done...
(I could not find the fabric line of the charm packs for my borders, but found these fabrics with help, not the floral, at Faye's Henhouse Quilt Shop south of the border...)
Hoping to have that done for this week's quilt gatherings...
"Hoping...." 8-)

I hope you all had a good, safe, and healthy weekend!
Happy stitchings!
Myra
