Great weekend

Hi ! I am back home from a nice weekend sewing retreat with a few friends. We had some great food , and good talks and etc. I got the rick rack sewn onto the Lattice Garden quilt. Now to sew on the leaves. I also made a block or two for my "Vintage Moments" quilt. I will love to have it finished someday! There are a lot of pieces and time into that one.
I started a sewing wallet that was in magazine Fast Quilts. I also pulled out an older small table topper and began to quilt it out.
Then since today was my birthday I came home early to spend with hubby. He is such a great hubby, he has his knee replaced tomorrow and I will be here for him, to nurse him back to his feet again. I am sure he is nervous over it.
So I will spend a good part of this week at the hospital as he will be in there for at least 3 days. Then I must make sure the hallway and etc are cleared for him to get around with a walker. I bought a book today for sewing pouches and purses and I plan to make a few of them from this . Some are really cute.
I spent the weekend away with some sewing friends. We had a great time and enjoyed one another and looking at each others work. Some really good chow and desserts!! Until next time
