I can retreat too!

All of my Mobile friends (except Nancy) is retreating this weekend and I was pouting about not being able to go. Really I was having a big pity party, but I was the only one there. SOooooo I decided to retreat all day by myself and pretend I was with my friends.
My nephew and his wife, on Ray's side is expecting their first baby. I have been looking and looking for the perfect quilt from Aunt Dinah (me) and I think I found it. Since we know it is a baby boy I thought he would like a space ship quilt. This is an old pattern that I saved out of a Quilter's Newsletter Magazine. You can tell I am making a quilt from my heart because this is almost completely made from templates. I hate templates.

I also have a niece that is having her second birthday soon. I didn't make a quilt when she was born because she was getting so many. Now I think I want to make her a big girl quilt. She likes dinosaurs and I think I have the perfect pattern. I will start on that tomorrow, at least the fabric picking.

More later,

Diane, you're rocket quilt is "out of this world". We did miss you this weekend but it looks like you got a lot more done than you would have if you had been at the retreat. You're going to love the new room.
