I spent most of this week at the Trinity Valley Quilt Guild annual retreat in Pottsboro, Texas. I always enjoy the retreat, and, amazingly, I always get a lot done. Despite the distraction of working in a room with sixty-two other people, I manage to create and sew. And this year was no exception.
I went to the retreat with a plan: create two small tuning fork quilts. It took me nearly three whole days to create this one:

It was three days of intensive sewing. And concentrating. And afterwards, I decided to "play," and to do some free-form, improvisational, seat of my pants kind of sewing. I created 2 small pieces:
At home, I am an obsessive sewer, working alone in my studio day after day without seeing anyone other than my husband (before and after work) and Boomer the cat. But my once-a-year foray into a group sewing session does make me very happy. I enjoy seeing what everyone is working on, and alternating periods of nose-to-the-grindstone sewing with socializing.
Maybe I'm not a complete hermit after all...........
