68 hours

I had 68 hours for myself this past week.  Now I don't know about you, but there is a lot of activity in my home.  So to have that much time for myself...I needed to pack up a few things.....

and travel a short distance......to spend some time at my annual Quilt Retreat at Inspiration Point Bible Camp in Clitherall, MN.



It was the perfect long weekend for some uninterrupted sewing (well.....the incredible meals and the comfortable lodging did take me away from my machine for a short amount of time).
It rained and it snowed....perfect sewing weather.



My first priority was to finish up my log cabin pumpkin project.....

It was my only "finished" project from the retreat, but I have 3 other quilts ready for backings and quilting.....I will post those when they are done.
We just had Daylight Savings for our area.  I thought I would use my extra hour to sew...but my internal clock told me it was time for bed....and I must say, that extra hour of sleep was wonderful....and fully needed for returning home and catching up on being away....for 68 hours.

It is so nice to get away every now and then! I love your table runner. I can't wait to see what else you have up your sleeve:)
