I had a wonderful time at my quilt retreat. A few problematic people in our workroom, but that happens virtually every time. We were able to make the best of it, as always. I also had great success with my sales items, and came home with $360, which is the most ever, and I think I brought the least amount of stuff this time! I did bring several kits, though, and that really adds up. I had people asking me if I had more that I hadn't put out yet, so they obviously like what I bring! Now, if I only stop buying stuff I feel so-so about, I wouldn't have so much to sell.
Anyway, I don't feel like I accomplished as much as the last retreat, but I was able to finish my daughter's massive Hello Kitty quilt. It took me 2 full days to finish, so there was not time for much else. She loves it though, and with the money from selling, I will have it quilted soon. I need to find a new quilter, though, and that's not easy to put your trust into someone like that. My last quilter really screwed up the last 2 quilts I gave her, and although my SIL still uses and likes her, I have lost all trust in her.
This is the other quilt I worked on. Three blocks completed out of 15 or 16 (can't remember how many I cut). These colors will look awesome in my living room. It's a complicated block, but I really love how it is turning out.
And finally, I finished and gifted the Interlocking Balloons scarf. The friend I gave it to LOVED it! And the good news is that I have enough yarn left over to make myself a scarf. Love that Rowan Cashsoft!
