Retreat 2013 - Day 2

Saturday dawned bright & sunny.  Apart from "having to" eat, we have been pretty much heads down tail up sewing sewing sewing.

We took a short break to have a happy snap.

During the day - apart from working on our projects, some of us spent a bit of time putting a fractured picture together.

We (my patchwork group) have been talking about doing a fractured picture for a long time, but we finally knuckled down in April and started work on this:

5 of us were doing 2 sections each.  This is the result.

On the "Projects" list - by 8pm - Miss High Achiever has completed 4 projects. (4/23)

Other projects that have been completed include these: (taken early in the day)
(Hard to see, Marti - but Susie's Magic Binding is getting a good workout this weekend - 1
 in the photo but 3 lots so far!)

And the board is looking like this:

The sectioned off area (above the wine bottle) are projects left from previous years - the oldest is 2010)

I have purple tags (surprise surprise!!)   And I have done 3.

We use our own definition of "Complete" - it might mean it's truly complete and ready to hang or wrap or...
OR it could mean - only the hand sewing of the binding to do
OR it could mean - just the top completed 

It's whatever it was that we each planned to do on each project.

Still days to go .....better get back to it!!
