Is it Christmas yet? This year is absolutely flying by! We did the bus trip, the shop hop and now on to the AQS show in Des Moines and our retreat at Camp Wesley Woods. By then, we'll be gearing up for the Comfort and Joy Quilt Show, which commences just before the Lighted Christmas Parade. See It is almost Christmas!! Some of us need to get started on projects...or we could just finish last years and tell people we're ahead of the game. Our Artsie group is having our retreat in the wilds of Union County this weekend, so maybe we can all get some projects finished, between the laughter and and the eating. Just getting together and relaxing would be enough, but oh, no, we actually have to try to teach each other new techniques. With friends like this, who needs quilt magazines. I took a poor picture of the Camp Quilt include here. I call it Squared Away. It's an easy charm and jelly roll quilt, just the kind of quilt to stitch up in your jammies at Quilt Camp.
