I love to sew, but with young children, it is hard to find time in my schedule. I am not that good at it that I can pick up and start sewing from my last attempt. I have to go back over the directions and figure out where I was when I left off and then by the time I do this someone needs me and the cycle starts all over again! After many attempts to get some sewing done, I have given up unless I have some simple mending to do.
However, my sewing group does a couple of day retreat every so often. My husband is awesome and allows me to go on these retreats. He just took off two days of work so that I could go on a 4 day retreat with my sewing ladies. I love to sew. I’m not that good at it, but I love getting together and sewing, eating, and conversing with my friends!
We drove to a sewing retreat house a couple of hours away. It had room for 10 people. It also had tables for each person, a fully functional kitchen, 2 bathrooms etc. We had 8 ladies all together. We each brought 2 dishes to share. However I think we all brought a few extra goodies. We had plenty of food, too much really. We ate and laughed, and sewed for 2 1/2 glorious days!
I got 2 projects done in the first day and a half. It was awesome. I even ran out of things to do for a moment, but one of my sewing ladies went through her stash and pulled out some of the cutest fabric for a baby blanket for our new baby. In just a matter of a few minutes I had hours and hours of work to do to make a very cute baby blanket. It is green and pink and very cute. I am doing a disappearing nine patch. So cute. I will show you a picture of it when I get it done. Be warned…it may be a while.
Here are some pictures of the weekend.
What a fun weekend. I can’t wait to do it again!
