We have been enjoying some good meals, I have had the chance to try out some new recipes and if I can figure out how I will add them to my posts. Yesterday we took a little field trip to nearby Rice Lake to visit Bargain Bill's and the Busy Bobbin Quilt Shop. It was a short drive to get there and worth the trip. It was a pretty sunny day and we even spotted an eagle! On top of bargains, it can't get much better! I know this probably sounds pretty boring to the non-quilty people, and some folks like to go to Vegas for the glamour and glitz for a winter vacation, but this type of getaway pleases me right now. Only problem is I am missing Valentines Day with my sweetheart. But I will be home tomorrow so that's not so bad. Every day should be like Valentines Day, right?

So many choices, so little time
Down to the last day of this retreat, so I am thinking about where I want to direct my time today. New Block of the Month? New socks? Start a purse? Needlefelting? Repair and replace fabrics on a vintage quilt top? Or all of the above? I will have to see where the spirit moves me. Some things I have accomplished: binding 2 Christmas quilts, binding an Amy Butler twin size quilt, binding a strippy baby quilt, making an Indygo Junction Accent Vest, pieced together an Olivia the Pig baby quilt, finishing the Carry Nation quilt, finishing a pair of knitted socks and piecing a Quick Brick flannel quilt. So that is a pretty good list!
