Bags Are Packed

My bags are packed.
I leave this morning for beautiful Star Valley, Wyoming to spend a week up at Rae Ann's cabin.

There will be 6 of us quilting away non stop.
With very limited Internet access, I'm not sure how much I will be able to post while I am gone.
I will take a lot of pictures and share with you as much as I can.
One of the organizational techniques I have learned from Lori Holt is to have everything cut out first, with each quilt placed in it's own container.

I have 3 quilts ready to go, and my crochet project in tow.
What do you think are the chances I will complete everything packed?

That sounds so fun! A getaway with quilty friends. Ahh! I always try to have everything cut into kits when I got to retreat too. Saves a lot of time and you can get so much more done. Have a great time!!!

So, so, SEW JEALOUS!!! Star Valley and quilting and friends?!? It just doesn't get any better than that! Have a great time, and I hope you get something done...I'm sure they'll be lots of talking, which results in UNsewing, and eating...oh I hope there's lots of eating! xo, Nan
