Retreat progress

I'm at retreat!! The drive was relatively uneventful except for the nagging misting rain and kick up from the trucks that inevitably prevented any safe passing. Ugh!

I have already hit Yoder's and Lolly's and picked up a fabric for Argyle Holiday's backing and scoped out backings for the bug jar quilt and the Doodlebugs. This of course means another trip before Sunday morning. :)

After shopping, I got busy on my Which Witch blocks and did a zig zag around all the purple pieces. And I started the stitching around the boots. Here is my first block done!

I have one more finished - just 34 more blocks to do!

Tomorrow, I am going to put the witches away and start on something else. :)

The Witch blocks are too adorable to stay as UFOs. Hopefully you'll get them finished for next year. :)

Enjoy the retreat. There is nothing better.
