Fall Retreat

Sue's local guild holds a spring and fall retreat in Winchester, VA.  We take over a very large conference room at a Hampton Inn so are able to sew all day and go upstairs to our rooms for the night.  It works out very well.  Sue went to her first retreat with this group last spring, and since the fall date didn't conflict with VCQ weekend (which it usually does), was able to attend again.  (Which comes as a welcome few days away from the ongoing kitchen renovation at home.)  Here are a few of the quick and easy projects she started with - a surefire way to take away some finished items!
A pair of fabric baskets that need some tacking on the inside and buttons on the flaps.

A pair of improvisationally pieced blocks to donate to a raffle quilt.
A zipper pouch with a clear vinyl front - largest of 3 sizes.  Some fun projects to get started.  Today, on to some work on the "repair project" and some UFOs.
