As always, I thoroughly enjoyed my time at the quilt retreat, and as always, I hated for it to end and having to come back home to reality. In the picture are quilt blocks that I had put together and the last one in October. I put them on the design wall to see how many I had. Uuummm....not as many as I thought. I worked on making some more and worked on making a back for the quilt. I need more black and white and hope to find some in my stash of fabric and work on it during the next retreat in July. I also worked on the yo-yo table runner, only to realize just how many more yo-yo's I need to make to finish it. I worked on my Arkansas Crossroads quilt top....also realizing I need to make a lot more half square triangles to finish making the 80 blocks. I worked on making microwave hotpads that I will donate to our quilt guild to try to sell in our boutique booth at the Common Threads quilt show coming up in June in Wichita, Kansas. I also got 3 Barbie blankets made for the girls' birthdays in August, including embroidering their names on each. Otherwise, it was a great social time. Normally we all take care of our own meals and bring snacks for the sharing table. This time others chose to help provide meals too so we only had one meal to come up with on our own. Boy that was a nice change. Although I don't complain, and I am happy with my $1 lunches and tv dinners for the weekend. I hope this May Day brings renewed spirits for all.

Those are a lot of unfinished projects you have going on but it sounds like it was fun. Good you only had one meal to come up with on your own. $1 lunches sounds good.
