I spent the weekend on my annual quilting pilgrimage with my mom and friends at Prairie Point Junction's Quilting on the Prairie Retreat in Cozad, USA. It was a great 3 day weekend of family, friends and fabric!
The really cool part is that I was able to nearly finish four outstanding UFO's from my collection. A couple of them have been deemed "NuFO's" (pronounced new-fo's) which means that I've had the fabric, but hadn't started the project until now. My husband coined the new vocabulary term, it's free for use.
I'd love to show you pictures of the projects. But I can't. I know that doesn't seem fair. And, I'll be honest, I'd really like to show you, but they are future gifts so, to post the pictures would spoil the future suprises. (assuming the gift recipients read my blog). I promise to take pictures when the quilts are done and post them when the time is appropriate.
The good news is that two quilt tops and backs are ready to be sent out for quilting. And, the other two only need the borders and backings. That means the gift giving might happen sooner vs. later. I can sum up the weekend by saying I ate way too many yummy treats given to me by my dear friend Gwen, the weekend was ful of producivity and I am INSPIRED to keep sewing, sewing, sewing.
