All packed!

I am all packed for my fall PINS - Phenomenial Internet Northwest Stitchers - retreat. (Follow this link - PINS - for my first post about this group). This fall our retreat is in Grants Pass, Oregon. I'm leaving first thing tomorrow morning - by 7:00 a.m. at the latest. And just like a child on Christmas Eve I'm too excited to go to sleep.

Cher from Marathon Quilter has joined our group and is going to retreat for the first time. This is a good thing for me because I'm still unable to drive very far. I'm picking up Cher in the morning and then she'll drive my CRV as we head south for 4 days of marvelous sewing. Cher is eager to meet this great bunch of gals and I'm eager for them to meet her.

I had an MRI on my shoulder yesterday afternoon but do not have any results yet. I am gaining more range of motion every day and the pain is getting less severe. I do believe I'm starting to heal!

I mailed all the patterns out to the winners yesterday morning so it shouldn't be too long until they arrive. And postage wasn't at all bad either - much less than I thought it might be.

I'll take lots of pictures at the retreat to share when I return. In the meantime have a great quilty weekend everyone!

Aren't retreat great fun? The sharing, laughter, meeting new friends and of course those late nights. There's nothing like it.

Hope you all had a wonderful time doing what you love most. Wasn't sure if today is the day you return from the retreat or not. Look forward to seeing your--and Cher's--accounts of the event and pictures to go with.
