Tuesday - Retreat Day 4

I am really liking this retreat business :) I feel like I'm getting so much done and looking for more :) I highly recommend it for everyone. I'm thinking I might need to do this at least once a month. And honestly, my biggest time bandit is Facebook and I'm not really even missing it that much.

Tuesday morning is Bible study, which means I usually get my daily chores done before I leave. I spend Monday preparing for any appointments during the week, so the big chores like cleaning house and laundry are done then to make Tuesday easier.

I take advantage of being out and run any errands that need done and stop at the library for any books or copies. When I get home, the first thing I do is take the dogs out.

While they played with the neighbor dog, I finished turning my garden. It's done for the season. I put away all the gardening tools, planted the mums and a vine I got for mother's day from Newton and my sister. The vine didn't say on the tag whether it was perennial or not, so I thought I would take a chance. I haven't done any research on it. I'm hoping to be surprised in the spring with a new, flowering vine for the trellis my father-in-law suggested we put up. I planted the vine at the entrance gate to our backyard.

Tuesday stitching revolves around Bethlehem.

This long, narrow block has the sheep scattering everywhere :)

French knots take quite a bit of time to stitch. I'm still planning on having it done this month.

Wednesday's plans are to meet BFF for a "quilt sandwiching party". She managed to get a room and tables set up at her church and several of us are getting together to sandwich and baste quilts that we are all working on. My Tilda quilt is being sandwiched.  I'm very excited to see this quilt take the next step.

I'm also, finally, able to give BFF her birthday gifts from last month. We have not had much success making plans and gettin gtogether. Both of us have a lot going on with family.

And finally, the beginnings of the baby quilts.

Thank you for stopping by,

Wishing you a creative day.

I love the monthly idea! I'm game! I'm missing all that I accomplished last week, even with a few interruptions. So far, this week is nothing but interruptions - and no cleaning. LOL My first thought on the sheep was - hours of French knots! It'll be gorgeous when its finished. I wish I were there with you today. I have a quilt that needs to be finished for a friend, and I just never get it together. I really must prioritize that into the list next week. I know you will all have a great quilty time!
