Reality!

I spent yesterday evening trying to decide what to take on the retreat and decided to be realistic and pack light! Two large projects, one very small project, my Rowenta travel iron, case with sewing tools and my favorite ruler are packed in my tote bag. My tabletop pressing board with the tacky scorch mark is going along, too.
Need to jump in the shower, throw things in the car and go pick up my sewing buds (four of us in my SUV).
Don't forget me and keep sewing!

Have a splendid time! There really should be a quilter's companion guide to what to pack on retreats like these. Are you picking me up at the airport at 3pm? I'll be waiting! ^_-

We'll be thinking of you all weekend as we slowly turn green with envy!
Have a blast and tell us all about it when you get back :-)

Have a fabulously wonderful time on the retreat I will try so hard not to die of jealousy. I can't believe you packed so lightly! When I went on my last retreat the entire trunk and backseat of my car was crammed with stuff.

The tacky scorch mark shows you use it - always be suspicious of stitchers who have everything pristine - it probably means they don't do much :o)

Wendy said...

Looks like you are ready. We'll be hear thinking of how much fun you'll be having.

Susan said...

Looks very organized to me. I can't imagine taking such a compact package on a week long retreat. =) Hope you are having a great time.
