Cough or No Cough

Well, our quilt retreat weekend is here and I'm going. So is Turbo. Cough or no cough. Hard to determine which of us is the sicker. Honna and I will be leaving is just a few short hours.

We'll stop a few times on the way to White Oak. I always need to go to Log Cabin on 340 and to the farmer's market across the street (they have the best cinnamon buns!). And Honna usually needs to hit Sauder's. And then for good measure, we generally mosey up to Old Country Store. Oh, it will be lovely. Cough or no cough.

I have gifts for all of the participants. Karen posted a fantastic tutorial right here for reversible glasses-or-rotarycutter cases and I made a dozen of them in very short order as favors for my friends. I used scraps of Daiwabo taupes. I wish I would have remembered to take a picture. Alas!

I don't have a whole lot of shopping planned. One thing I want to find is some Christmas fabric -- I have two wedding showers this summer with the theme Christmas in July and I thought perhaps table runners (they always have cute table runner patterns at Log Cabin) or aprons were in order.

I've packed an assortment of possible projects. And my cough medicine.

Can't wait!

Ahhh, I so envy you...a retreat. I've never been to one, but one of these days.

Your eyeglass/rotary cutter case sounds like a wonderful gift. Please post a photo when you can.

Enjoy your trip, be safe.
