I am finally getting reorganized from quilt retreat. I was away a couple of days and then in denial for a while, and now I have to face the fact that retreat is over for another year and I have to clean up!
This was the pile of stuff that sat for days waiting to be put away. Some of the projects are back in the cupboard (probably until next year's retreat) and some of them I am determined to finish up.
I organized a couple of projects into these scrapbooking storage boxes with everything I need to work on the blocks... my needle case, scissors, and thread. These are my quilt-as-you-go string blocks and I am sewing the twosies into foursies using purple sashing. I wanted to finish these during the olympics but I got so wrapped up in watching the action and cheering for the athletes, that I didn't get much accomplished at all. Here is the pile of blocks waiting to be sewn together, which I like to do by hand.
