Here we are at our favorite quilt retreat house. Fireside Retreat in Orillia. After we got Bear safely off to the airport he arrived safe and sound in case you're wonderingit was time to get home and pack the car for the retreat.
I had packed the bags, but they needed to be loaded into the car. Then I was off. The trip up was uneventful - just the way I like it. Everyone was very anxious to get started and when I arrived, most of the group had just arrived as well. I love their enthusiasm.
Unpacked everything and set up the embroidery machine. I have a lot of embroidery to do and it was going to take some time. That silly machine ran for most of the day and I still wasn't able to finish. I was hoping I could, but that didn't happen.
Of course, it Adults dating are we gonna do stonehenge fabric northcott help that I had to make two trips to various places. I was making chili for dinner and I didn't think that I had brought enough meat so off to the store for more meat and more tomatoes.
The chili turned out amazing! Not too spicy but I brought the spices along in the event that someone wanted to put more in. Then once I had the embroidery machine set up, I thought I could get the other sewing machine set up so I could sew.
I opened the lid to discover that there was no thread on the thing. Now how did that happen? I must have been using a decorative thread on that machine and took it off and did not replace it with piecing thread.
So I was off to the quilt store to get thread. I literally spent the entire day embroidering and piecing some blocks. It was after 10 PM when I shut everything down for the night and I was the last person well, Ronda called it a night about the same time. That doesn't happen too often. It would appear that in my rush to leave the house that I had forgotten to pack some pjs.
Oh well - I managed. Some of the group doesn't get to see each other very often as they have moved away so coming to the retreat is a great way to catch up.

Now that I'm not chained to the embroidery machine which makes a lot of noiseit'll be easier to keep track of what is going on in the house. Adults dating are we gonna do stonehenge fabric northcott bet the girls in the other room were having conversations about Ronda and myself and we couldn't hear a thing they said! The weather was icky yesterday.
I had wanted to go for a walk, but there was no way I was going out in that weather. I did however find an amazing pair of rubber boots.
One of the problems with rubber boots is that the top part is too narrow for my calves. The pair I found has soft neoprene from the ankle up. Now how convenient is that? I wore them around this morning and they are perfect.
They're supposed to be good for the cold weather which is exactly what I need.
So far so good and I needed to replace my other ones as the back of one had split open. I'm late with the blog this morning as it's now almost lunch!
I wanted to get the rest of that embroidery out of the way and it is done!!!! On that note, I'd better get myself in gear and get that embroidery trimmed and sewn together! Have a super day!!!!
Reflections from Northcott's VP of...
Posted by Elaine at Wednesday, November 7, My day off. Yesterday was supposed to be a day of getting things embroidered and sewn. However, I didn't even touch a sewing machine. Well other than to pack it up. I'm on my way to a sewing retreat this morning. I know Adults dating are we gonna do stonehenge fabric northcott bad timing. After the missed attempt at sending Bear home yesterday, I had to get to the vet so we could obtain a new health certificate so he could fly. Poor little guy - he was very out of sorts about the whole thing.
I'm happy to report that he received a clean bill of health and as I write this, he's on his way from the cargo depot to the big plane that will take him home to Vancouver.
His flight leaves at 7: I think he's going to go crazy when he gets home. I kind of miss the little guy already. He was so darn cute and so fun and it was great entertainment to see what he would come up with next. Bye, bye Bear - we miss you already!
Bear and I spent a lot of time yesterday just hanging out and catching up on some sleep. Good grief - I was tired.
Not only from getting up at a ridiculous time to get him to the airport which didn't work out but the travel day the day before as well. Not only did we go back to bed when we got back from the airport, but we had a long, long nap on the couch after lunch. Then I had to get up because I was teaching a class. It was the second session of teaching the nine-year-old and her dad how to sew a dress. They had done their homework and it was well done. When the class was over, they just had to attach the skirt to the bodice and the ruffle to the skirt.
So they still have a fair amount of homework to do. They didn't choose the easiest pattern for a total beginner.
But they were making out just fine. Super excited to see the young ones take up sewing and this girl is going to go gangbusters.
Now only on her own accord, but she has great parents at least a great dad to support her. So that class was at Oh Look Fabric. If you have kids or know of kids who want to learn to sew, give the store a call and we can set something up. Even adults for that matter. I'm making dinner tonight for the group at the retreat. My plan was to make the chili at home and take it with me. However, I sauteed the veggies and that was the extent of my cooking. I'll do the rest at the retreat right after lunch.
Thank goodness, I'm going by myself.

I packed half of the car this morning and well, I still have the sewing machines yes - taking two - one for embroidery and one for sewing. So I must get the rest of the car packed.
The winners of the International Quilter's Association quilt show were announced last night and here's a link to the winning quilts. There are a couple of Canadians amongst the winners. I have to say that the pictures on the web do NOT do justice to the detail in these quilts. I did see most of the winners and I was certain that I had seen them all, but there are a couple that I don't recognize.
And it's funny - there are some that I know I saw in person, but boy - they look different seeing them in a photograph. The level of detail and the workmanship are truly outstanding in all of these quilts.
As an FYI - I'll have some stuff to sell in an upcoming craft sale. Be sure to mark those dates down. I'll be there for part of the day on Friday. If you're in a panic about Christmas gifts, this is the place to be!!!
On that note, I'd better get the girls no boy anymore for their walk, finish loading the car and get myself off to the sewing retreat. Posted by Elaine at 6: Oh Look FabricQuilt Festival.
