Tons of Fun and Got Lots Done

Oh my gosh and that title even rhymes...and I was worried about my titles...LOL!

Hope everyone had a great week...I sure did...doesn't get much better than 5 whole days with good friends, good food and lots of sewing.  I can't even tell you how much we laughed and stayed up half the night talking and giggling...just like a slumber party...beyond fun!  One day Linda fixed us the most amazing lunch...Baked Brie with raspberries and walnuts...

Oh my!  It was sooooo good!  I could really get used to eating like that...

I am  so thrilled that I got lots done...I got Camden's Big Sister top done...
...ordered backing today so it will be off to the quilter soon.  I got all of the blocks done for Hampton's Big Brother top done...I spent some time today getting it laid out and  lots of the blocks sewn together into rows.
I also got 51 of the 80 blocks done for "Buster's" quilt done...
...It's going to be a happy quilt!

That's my week...wonderful fun!  This week leave on another adventure...Andy's 40th college reunion in Pennsylvania...more time with good friends and an evening in Pittsburgh to have dinner and see Wicked...I can't wait.  The house/pet sitter was here yesterday...I'm so excited that the boys just love her.  They'll have a great week too!  I'm taking my computer and camera so I plan to blog from there...see you from Pennsylvania!  Have a great week!

Oh my gosh, you DID accomplish a bunch...and having so much fun and good food in the mix, sounds like you had a delightful time. I'm not jealous...well except for that baked dessert you showed, you got my tummy rumbling with your description of that!...but I would love to go to a quilting retreat. I've never been to one and they just sound so wonderful. Thanks so much for sharing your fun with us. Big Hugs...
