Retreat time!

Hi all,

I have been keeping a low profile lately. There has been a lot of sickness and drama in our house for the last couple of months and this has made me reassess my priorities.

I am really cutting down on the time I spend on the computer - which is mostly blog surfing, and I feel like I have gained an extra couple of hours a day! I have made a “must read” folder in google reader and at the moment it contains 16 blogs, which is not many when compared to the 168 blogs I am subscribed to.

I plan to keep my blog updated because it is my creative diary and I am still creating. Actually I am more inspired than I have been for a long time.

But guess what I am doing this weekend….

My bags are packed! I am going on my first ever quilting retreat – I have been on a scrapbooking retreat 6 years ago, how times have changed!

The retreat actually started today but I am only brave enough to leave my boys for one night….I know I have too many things packed but what if I get there and don’t want to work on a particular project? I need to have options!

I will share some pictures of my little adventure with you when I am back and recovered.

Did you include the kitchen sink? If not, then you aren't over packed yet. Have fun!

Have a wonderful time at the retreat. What you have done to organise your quilting time is fantastic.

If you are only taking three bags you have under packed!!! I hear you about loosing time blogging, but I have found that 5am works well for me! LOL I hope you have a fantastic fun time at your quilting retreat. There is no better battery recharger then a retreat with good friends, food and fun sewing. Happy quilting Sue SA.

Good for you! Sometimes I think I should do that...just 'unplug' for at least a month or so and see what transformations take place. I have a feeling I'd be a lot happier. And stop comparing myself to other people so much. It'd really be freeing. Is that what you have found?
