I'll post more about the quilt show later - I've not downloaded the pictures from the camera yet. I'll also tell more about the retreat. In the meantime I want to show you the Civil War blocks I finished while I was gone - eleven of them. These brought me to a grand total of 60 blocks as of Sunday evening.

I've been back from retreat since just before noon on Tuesday, but it seems like I've been running madly ever since. I've just not found time to post any sooner. Granted, I've been in the sewing room madly trying to catch up with this week's Civil War Diaries blocks, but I've also been occupied with our guild quilt show. I took my quilts in on Wednesday morning but couldn't hang around to help due to app'ts - hair, nails, etc. I looked pretty scroungy after quilting day and half the night for five days. I also had to get my Grandma fix by spending time with Joseph, Rick and Rebecca. Today I spent most of the day at the quilt show - seeing the quilts and then hand quilting the quilt in the frame. Even in this age of mostly machine quilted quilts we still generate much interest in the show attendees in watching us hand quilt.
