My Bags are Packed, Replying to Comments, and I've Got a Helper!

 My bags are packed for another Minutes for Me Adventure!  I am headed to Oelwin, Iowa to LouAnn's Quilt Garden and Retreat Center!  I plan to sew and sew and sew --- Oh and eat and talk and laugh and learn and enjoy the company of quilting friends!
But first I would like to reply to all the wonderful comments that you all have left me... but I can't do it all in one night! So replies will happen when I return! Gabby tried to help with the replies and then gave up. She cuddled up by my feet!
I am taking several projects that I need to complete.
The first project will be our green donation quilt.
Last year's May for Me Mystery Quilt Along from Tonya at Hillbilly Handiworks. This is a photo from Tonya...Thanks! My fabric is packed in the car.  I chose 30's fabrics too!
My Blue Home Sweet Home Quilt from Kim's Crafty Apple --- Where Creativity Blooms.
I need to make at least 2 dozen Mini Comfort Quilts for a special order.
I am going to work on binding 18 Mug Rugs!
I have a little wall hanging that I need to bind. I was quilting it, (thread painting it) in this photo.  It turned out pretty cool when I was done! 
I started a black and white quilt project using my Zig Zag Block.  Oh... I can't wait to work on this one, as it is something special for me and my Mom! It's not a secret.  We picked it out the fabric together.
When I share the zig zag black and white project, I will share about the May for Me Quilt Challenge.
I am also taking some other miscellaneous sewing projects ... If I get to work on them, I will share about them.
My plan is to take photos, upload them, and share the photos as I complete each project.

So join me in my Minutes for Me Adventure as I sew and share my progress!

Here are photos from last fall, when I went on another Minutes for Me Adventure. There is a link in the sidebar of the listing of the projects from that Minutes for Me Adventure! --->

I love your comments... If you leave one I will reply next week.
If you have a question that you would like answered asap.  Please email me directly at  I'm taking my laptop along and I will check in between the sewing and eating and laughing!
And of course all fabric orders will be mailed out on Monday morning.
Enjoy your day and your week!
