August is almost OVER!!!

Well, I have now been retired from the retail world for almost 4 months. I cannot believe 4 months have gone by so quickly. I have been a busy girl! We just finished our first Camp Blanding Retreat. What an awesome weekend. We had 144 attend - to include 2 fellows!! I've never seen one giant room so full of happy people in my life. The projects everyone was working on were simply breathtaking!

I even finished my BOM (all pieced together)... It will soon be on it's way to the quilters... Cathy and/or Lynn! I can't wait to see the magic they do! Then I will be writing the pattern(s) and getting the shop manuals ready. As soon as it's all quilted... I'll post a picture !!

Then... a second project was almost finished also. I have to stitch everything down... then quilt...bind... and it's also finished. That reminds me.. I need to pack it up and take it with me... to KENTUCKY!!

Jack (my hubby) and I are driving to Atlanta where he will check out with his company, Varian Medical. He will then officially be retired. He's lovin' life right now.. I'm so happy for him. His job was sssssoooooo stressful.... the guy needs a break!

After Atlanta, we are heading up to Marti Norris's house! She and I and Jack are going to go antique shopping. I'm bringing back goodies and will be selling them on my be sure and stay tuned!

Now... I'm off to finish packing and then on to bed!

Happy Sewing... and remember... "Celebrate Handmade"
