I Think I’m Ready

For the quilt retreat that is!  Eleven of my quilting buddies and I are heading to Red Lodge tomorrow for our spring quilt retreat and not coming up for air until Sunday afternoon!  I’ve got a plastic bin full of projects and my Shop Hop passport all ready for stamping when we stop at the quilt shops in Absarokee and Red Lodge.  We are going to have so much fun!

We made an early run into Big Timber this morning—the clinic was holding their annual health fair type blood draw--$55 for a set of routine blood work that would probably cost close to $400 any other time.  The kicker was you have to be fasting, nothing by mouth after midnight the night before.  No coffee—I’m really not a pleasant person in the morning until I’ve had my coffee so we went early, got the blood work done and made a beeline for the restaurant for breakfast and coffee. 

I’ve spent the rest of the day getting ready for the retreat—packing, cutting out projects, etc.  I did make a batch of spaghetti sauce for late lunch/early dinner—Michael will enjoy the leftovers while I am gone. 

Here’s my pile of stuff to be loaded into Shirley’s rig in the morning--IMG_6824

Our hearts go out to Al and Kelly who are grieving the loss of their second beloved dog in less than a week.  I can’t imagine their pain. 

I’m taking a little break from blogging—not taking a computer with me on the quilt retreat—I’ll be back on Sunday and posting again.


  1. Have a great time at the retreat!! Did you get the email I sent you about the cooking class?

  2. happy stitching to you this weekend!..enjoy your time away!

  3. That must be a "Grapes of Wrath" quilt you are working on. I see the fermented grapes amongst the supplies. Have fun!!!

  4. Hope you have a fantastic time at your retreat and look forward to hearing all about it when you get back to posting.

  5. Have fun Janna!! A break from the computer will be nice and the "grapes of wrath" should make things a lot more fun. :-) We'll be waiting to see some finished quilt projects when you get back. Hugs..........Pat
