Quilt Retreat

You know you've been gone too long, or not posted on your blog for awhile when Blogger asks you to please "sign in"! :o)

I've been quilt-retreating with the Ranch Hands. One of our semi annual treks to Bishop's Ranch that we all enjoy so much. We had a blast as usual! The weather was wonderful---if not a tad warmer than expected, but gorgeous evenings. Seeing quilting friends I don't see except at the retreat is the best. Catching up on what is going on, and making new friends as well.

Now to sort and put away--laundry. Pictures to label, and Bill has started the bathroom remodel since I went on retreat. I'm off to buy paint and wall paper remover---ugh!

The reality of leaving the ranch and getting back in the groove at home is always a challenge! I did make progress on some UFO's at retreat. When I wasn't spending time talking!---more later!

What lovely quilts you are finishing. I especially like the tied one. Could you tell us how you went about that. I have to show some ladies and I have never really tied one. Someone said you need to make square knots - how is a knot square?? And is the needle curved or just a big eye needle? I've watched some videos but they're not that detailed.

Any help would be great Angie
