Yesterday was Day 4 of my self declared 4 day weekend. I sure did manage to get a lot done in those 4 days. I think declaring it "ME" time really helped keep me motivated.

First thing in the morning I quilted up this horse quilt that I pieced a couple of weeks ago. I make some type of horse quilt every year and so far every year they have sold at my craft shows.

The rest of the day I pretty much spent on making binding and sewing it on. Not exactly my favorite part of the process and doing bindings all afternoon got awful boring but it got a lot of things just that much closer to being totally done. I got the binding on the horse quilt, on 4 of the 5 runners I quilted over the weekend and I made up a scrappy binding (but not sewn on yet) for the Christmas quilt I quilted recently. I will definitely have enough hand work for the near future.

I very much enjoyed my 4 day mini retreat.

I should be back to customer quilts this morning but I have another hospice quilt partially loaded on the frame so will be doing that next. I think I am going to practice the Ziggle Ferns again from the Pajama Quilter DVD.

Stay tuned tomorrow for a mini quilt show. I got back 5 hospice quilts in the last couple of days from being bound so I will post pictures of all of them tomorrow.

I think you need to self proclaim more mini retreats. You got so much accomplished in 4 Days. I just knew I'd be hearing about the hand work that was coming. Find that place near the TV....
