Lil' Family Quilt Retreat

I am not home yet but wanted to take a minute and show some fun things we made at our two day quilt retreat.

We all made bags.  Felicity made the big red and blue one, Deb made the cute little pink/black ones and the large red/black one.  I made the colorful ones in all three sizes.  Sandra started a big bag in black and bright colors.  I didn't get a photo, but it is so cute.  Deb also is well on her way to finishing several  more bags for Christmas that I didn't photo graph.  I love the photograph with the horse in the background.  This is my brother's front yard view.

The three bags I made are on my 3rd Quarter Finish Along List.
Here is the link to the Finish Along Linky Party.

My little Nephew was outside working along side his dad most of the day - hence the dirty face.  He is so sweet and cute.  He came in for a little while and quietly crafted with paper and pencils and duct tape.  He is pretty quiet and we didn't even notice that he was making a bag too.

I also worked on my blocks for my Pieceful Country Quilt month 7.  You can see the stars in progress.  I also made a couple of fish blocks and basket blocks that I will post tomorrow.

On the table you can also see a Batik bag Deb was working on.

Felicity finished the final blocks in her scrappy country quilt.  I love it!

The best part was the amazing company and spending time with my family.  We had visits with my brother's family, sister and family, and parents.  I love them all!  It was so nice to catch up.

I will be seeing everyone again this week because my SON COMES HOME after being gone for two years!  I have missed him so much.  We will have a grand reunion with my immediate family at the airport and then a Sunday together at church and home for food and visiting.

I am linking up with BOMs Away!

Those bags are all really cute. They will be popular gifts. Enjoy the time with your son and the rest of the family.

Hooray to see family and then see your son! My son was in the Army for 6 years and was overseas in Baghdad for 15 months. Some of the toughest times in life. I get it... and am sooo happy for you. Enjoy!

Also the quilts and bags are great, too.

Those bags are adorable - and definitely a lovely view from your brother's front yard!

Great bags. I like the medium size – it is so handy, don’t you think?
Felicity’s quilt is beautiful, and your nephew looks adorable.
Enjoy having your son home!
