I survived...

...another annual guild quilt retreat.  I'm glad they only happen once a year because I always come home Sunday absolutely exhausted.  Sunday night I went to bed at 9:30 and didn't get up till 10:30 the next morning.

I wish I could say that I'm exhausted because I worked super hard and got lots done.  But then that would be a lie.  I worked on a little of this and a little of that and only managed to finish a few projects...projects that were mostly finished to begin with. 

My Cathedral Window pillow finally has it's ruffle.  While I'm not a ruffle person, I really felt this particular pillow needed it.  I'm happy with the result...don't know what I'm going to do with it but I'm happy. 

Next I finished these two totes bags that I've had partially done for at least four years.  The black and yellow one is my favorite.  I couldn't be more pleased with how it turned out.

Unfortunately that's all I have to show of my work because I forgot to take pictures of the other things I worked on.  So how about I show you pictures I managed to get of some of the other gals' work? 

Donna's quilt...I don't know what to call this thing but I love it!  I am thinking it would look awesome in Denyse Schmidt prints...Flea Market Fancy or maybe her new Chicopee line.

Linda's cute little baby quilt...a great project to use a jelly roll for!

Liz's quilt...the blocks are made from jelly rolls strips and background yardage.

This quilt was probably my favorite.  I love all the red and black prints and the scrappy look of it. 
It was made by Marsha's sister-in-law whose name escapes me.  I'm so terrible with names.

And finally here are the Block Lotto blocks we all made.  Mine is bottom row, second from the right. 
Here's a closer look of mine before I added corner stones.

I'm sorry to say that's all I have.  I'll try to take more pictures next year...good luck with that...LOL.

Hope y'all have a great week!

Till next time...

Love your bag! The autumn one is my favorite. ;-) And the BW&R quilt is great~ I've been twisting my head this way and that to figure out the pattern. LOL Sounds like you had a very good time!

Your cathedral window pillow is gorgeous. Love going to retreats but you are so right, you need a vacation after going just to recuperate.
Happy you had such a great time.
