This past weekend I attended my first quilt retreat. I almost didn't get to go because I got sick :o( I missed Friday eve and Saturday morning but made my way over by dinner time. I had prepaid and wanted to get what I could out of it. I didn't feel my best but had a good time just the same. I loved seeing all the projects the ladies were working on, we have some beautiful quilters and sewers. This is the mystery quilt we did, I FINALLY got my done after a few incidents involving my thread ripper :o( My head wasn't so clear..ah well.

This is basket number 2 for tisket a tasket...Isn't it so sweet!!
I made this little bookmark today for a dear friend of mine. I have ordered her a book from an author she likes and will put this in it for her bday.

A quilt retreat! Sounds like great fun. :) Glad you were able to make some of it. I just hate when I pay for something and get sick. Feel better!
