    Virtual Retreat - Extreme Home Sewing Edition

    Hey all, I've got a three day weekend and I'm looking to get a lot of projects done! Anyone interested in joining me in a virtual sewing retreat?

    Here's my rather ambitious list:

    1. Hem Anita's skirt

    2. Hem Uncle Dave's work pants

    3. Finish piecing Nana's Quilt Top. Sandwich, quilt, and bind.

    4. Cut out and sew two pairs of pants for Jack.

    5. Finish Jack's Ranger Coat.

    6. Cut out and sew three shirts for Jack.

    7. Finish my purple surcoat.

    Its enough to keep me busy for several weeks, guess we'll have to see how far I get.

    I'm exhausted now! That's some more list. Be sure to tell us what you did accomplish! I'll be cleaning and organizing my workroom and sewing some flannel baby blankets.
    Why do I keep trying to find the "like" button?

    Its an open sewing weekend - anything goes! I have to force myself to make garments these days as I prefer quilting but its getting to crunch time - Ragnarok is in a month and we need garb.

    I'm starting a Scrappy Bargello quilt today. I will grab a minute to sew whenever I can. I have strips already cut for my first two sections. I have family coming in Saturday for a graduation, so I probably won't get much done this weekend. Today it will be sew a little, clean a little.

    I'm actually heading out the door to a real-life quilting weekend in about 10 minutes. But it's a "sleep at home" retreat, so I'll try to check in when I get home. I have lots I want to accomplish - finish a quilt from my last retreat, make pieced borders for my swoon quilt, and maybe start a new project.

    I too have a three day week end and would love to join you. But we have a wedding to attend tomorrow and are staying overnight, then a attending a Sunday morning brunch for out of town guests and finally, hoping to spend a couple of hours with the DGD's in the afternoon, before heading home. I'll be able to spend a couple of hours at the machine today while I catch up on laundry (I hope!!) I'm working on a controlled scrappy Asian. Only 20 something blocks to finish!

    I have a baby quilt already glued and reading to tie, then, bind. Really want to get this done since I now have two other baby quilts to be done.

    How does a virtual retreat work? Do you have a special chat room that you use? Going to be out of town all day tomorrow and not sure what the rest of the weekend hold but do want to finish my Wild Thing project this weekend.

    Thanks for explaining to the new kid!!

    I'm in the FMQ stage of my first quilt - I need to be done or almost done this weekend but it's exhausting! I know I'm too tense, but the wrestling is also tiring. Anyway, I will be a quilting fool!

    Today is the first day of hubby's vacation from work. We aren't going anywhere, but usually it's impossible for me to get anything done when he is home. So likely, no sewing for me.

    I'm in. I have a couple quilts all ready to be bound. I have 2 more to be sandwiched and quilted on the long arm. I have 2 more that have to be prepped for binding. Then when/if I get those done, I have a HST quilt top half done that has to be finished sewing together. When I get those done I can start on quilts for Oklahoma. I still have a couple for Hurricane Sandy Victims to finish too. Good thing its a long weekend, and no plans. I'm going to make myself some potato salad this morning, and eat hot dogs and potato salad all weekend....all by myself.

    If you don't work on it you'll never finish it.
