We did go on a trip though. It was just shorter and local. We travelled an hour and a half north to Wasaga Beach, where we had a mini retreat at a cottage belonging to Cyndy's niece.
This trip couldn't have come at a better time. I spent Monday and Tuesday with my aunt, I went back to work Wednesday and Thursday and went to the cottage from Thursday night to Sunday night. My sister was with my aunt on Wednesday and Thursday, my lovely daughter stopped in for a visit on Friday and my wonderful husband went down on Sunday.
We have lot's of services set up for my aunt and she seems to accept most of them but there are definitely some worries about her cognition so we do have concerns about her ability to be on her own.
But on to the retreat. Wendy had a bit more time than Cyndy and I, so she prepared all the meals in advance. Thanks Wendy.
We got lots done. I finished the quilting on this baby quilt. All it needs now is binding.
I also finished the Pirate pants for my grandson, I'll share these in another post. This was my first time sewing knits and I'm happy with the result.
I also finished making my second Scout Tee.
Here I am modelling it.
And here is a close up of the tee on the back porch.
I love this Cotton and Steel octopus fabric and I'm looking forward to some warmer weather when I will be able to wear it. It's my first finish for the second quarter of the 2016 Finish Along. My original list is here.
On Monday I came home from work to find two exciting things from other quilting friends in my mail box. I'll post about those later. Right now I'm feeling grateful for my many quilting friends. The local ones and the online ones. I'm linking up to Let's Be Sewcial with my friend Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts.
