Still working on the Amaretto binding. Right around half-way finished with that, so that'll make it for a Feb. finish.
But it's getting a break for the next 4 days. I'm goin' on my first true quilting retreat, and I'm taking Jane with me.
Gonna drive 8 hours to lock myself in with a bunch of ladies I've never, ever met. Scares me to death! I'm not good at social stuff. But I'm putting a lot of faith in the fact that quilters are almost all super cool people. That, and if for some strange reason I feel totally uncomfortable being sociable, I have so much work I'm bringing that I can zero in on that.
But who wouldn't have a great time at something organized by Emily of Crazy Old Ladies, with daily trunk shows by Natalie of Piece and Quilt (taking my book so she can sign it!), Amber of A Little Bit Biased, and Katie of From the Blue Chair. Wow!! This is going to be great.
And I even get to see a cousin that I haven't seen for decades. Since I'm not going to start the 8-hr drive (without snow factors added) at 2am to get there mid-morning Thursday, I'll be driving over the mountains tomorrow. Sharon lives an hour away from the retreat, and she said Sure, I could spend a night at their place. So I'm really looking forward to seeing her, too.

I've got all my Dear Jane stuff packed up and ready to go. I haven't worked on it since we moved from the temporary apartment to this house because some of the to-be-worked things got lost. But I found it just in the nick of time last week, and everything's organized and ready to go. Let's see how many of the 70-block backlog I can put together in 3 days! How far can I push the chart?!
