"New Update"--So good to be Home, but I've had a blast!!!

Update-" This is an update added to my post, I love the magazine American Patchwork & Quilting by Better Homes and Gardens and needing a fast quilt to be finished within a month and going on vacation it had to be something quick and easy. My new magazine arrived and I saw this one. Grabbed 18 fat quarters off the shelf and adjusted the border and only 3 squares across and 3 down. It really turned out to be a big quilt."

Hi everyone, I've missed all of you and can't wait to catch up on all the excitement out in blog land. We got back from our vacation and then I headed out to a quilt retreat with good friends. I'll post pictures soon of all the sewing that was done. It does a body good to have laughter and sewing all in one place.

The picture at the very top is a quilt I made that had to be finished for this weekend. It is for a raffle for someone very sick and I hope it will bring in funds needed for him and his family.

The pictures below are from our vacation and the retreat I went to. I'll give out all the information in my next post, the ladies that run this one are so nice and talk about good food...

Welcome back, Bonnie. You've been missed.

Your raffle quilt is beautiful and I hope you it raises a bunch of money.

Now that's a place to have a retreat! Not too shabby, huh?
