MONDAY IS THE LAST DAY OF CAMP BEJEWELED RETREAT....IT HAS BEEN FUN!!

Saturday after the fun day of hiking and a nap, I cut out 10 more pillowcases to make.

Got this peach applique ready to applique. You can see the green under the peaches....ooops....should have paid more attention... this will be a pillow, it is a joke for someone at Vance's work.
Had left over fabric from the pillowcase and so I cut out these squares for a quilt. All I had was Samoan fabric to match it.....hope I can find a backing???


Then more left over fabric, once again Samoan fabrics.... hopefully, I can get to sewing on these things tomorrow for my last retreat day, right now, it is still Sunday.


I decided on my giftiee that I am going to make myself. I know, I should have planned my retreat better and had the gift ready when I started my retreat. I have never done a retreat before, this was a learning experience. Will show that when I get it finished.

I also plan to go shopping for fabric tomorrow....how can I have a retreat and not buy fabric? Gee....what is up with that. But I must say, this was quite a retreat, there has been little laughter and talk going on.....I have missed you. Maybe in the future, I can join in a real retreat and meet some of you??? Thanks for joining mine via blogging.

  11. Fun retreat! If you had all of us there with you there would have been more shopping, eating, laughing and less sewing.
