Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever-(n) Restlessness from confinement
Sew-together-(n) A time to work on your quilt and other sewing projects amongst friends.

That's where I am headed on Friday...a much needed retreat with girl friends at the lake.  It looks like a cold and wet weekend, but who cares?  We will all be busy doing what we love!

Packing my bags with the important things...show and tell....

Snacks of course!


And a project to work on...but I haven't decided what I want to work on this weekend.  I have been cutting 2.5" strips, so I think I will work on something out of  Kim Brackett's Scrap-Basket Surprises.  I finished sewing together Summer Breezes and now I am quilting it.  Normally I do not work in pastels, but I do love Robin Pandolph's fabrics.  When I saw this quilt in Kim's book, I knew I needed to use my box of pastels to make this one.  There are a few more I want to make, and I do have Kitchen Sink cut out, so that will most likely be the project I will take with me.

Is it Friday yet?
