Retreat Accomplishments!

Well I finally managed to get the projects from the weekend hung up and photographed. I'm very happy with what I managed to get done and I'm even happier to say that I now have 2 UFOs closer to completion :)

Here's the top that was starteed by my mother in law when we took a class together 4 or 5 years ago. A couple years ago she brought me the pieces and asked me to finish it for her. So I finished up the blocks at retreat and just need to add borders then quilt and bind it. This will be her CHristmas gift this year.

This is a full shot of the top I made for a friend during retreat. 3 years ago she and I went fabric shopping and she picked out the fabric and pattern. I started it awhile ago but got bored with it and moved on to something else. I just need to add border, quilt and bind it now. I'm feeling good that it's much closer to being on her bed now.

I also finished the center of a mystery top that I'm pattern testing, so I can't show the top yet, but I will be able to show it on January 1st after the mystery is revealed :)

The other project I worked on was a purse for the Polka Dots & Rick Rack swap hosted by Sharon at Red Geranium Cottage. It is now on it's way to it's new owner and packed with goodies :) I can't say who it's going to as it is a secret :)

I hope everyone is having a great week :)
