    I returned from my quilt retreat in the northwoods of MN on Sunday and wanted to post a few pictures of the retreat as well as the projects I completed/almost completed while I was there!

    flag wallhanging I made on Friday - the rotary cutter is there for size comparison - I did not use "cheater" triangles, these are finished 1" square using 1/2 sq. triangles - PUTZY but fun!

    last one, promise!

    quilt for a silent auction benefiting a maternity home where I volunteer - this is the Brown Bear fabric and I am including the Brown Bear book plus a book tote with the same fabrics! I did this on Wednesday evening and Thursday morning!

    I made him too - but not this weekend! He lost a tooth this morning and I think he is just the cutest thing!

    Looks like a wonderfully productive and fun-filled time. You've done some gorgeous work....especially that last one.

    Hope the tooth fairy is good to him.

    Hi Ruth,

    the tooth fairy is going to bankrupt me - he has another 2 loose teeth and my dd has 3!

    He doesn't mind "precious" all that much, but he is getting a bit sensitive to "beautiful"! He says that only girls are beautiful - boys are handsome!

    He is a cutie, and thankfully I can NOT duplicate him! He is cute, but that hides the devilishness of him!!

    the toothfairy gave him $5!!!! Way too expensive for me, but then again I'm not the toothfairy in our family!

    There were 45 women there and they all did amazing quilts or paintings (3 are painters)....a wonderful time each year!

    You will love your quilt retreat! it is a wonderful time - I love to eat, sleep and work on my quilts all week - of course I have to wash all my clothes when I get home because they are covered in thread, but that's the beauty of it!!

    Have a great time and be sure to post pictures!

    Thanks everyone for your wonderful thoughts!! The retreat was a blast and went by so fast...I can' wait until October when hopefully I can go again!

    My ds is definitely adorable - my dh and I each claim the genetic ties to that!! :D
