Sew South

I am back to reality, and I must say I am not to sure I like it lol!  This was my very 1st retreat and I absolutely loved it.  This will be a very picture heavy post, just to warn you!

So I get there and and 1st thing I see is a huge swag bag!  There everyone is busy setting up their stations and the fun begins!

There is my little station :)  Oh I just loved it!!

Some of the projects we did.  The top was a lovely bracelet.   Then to the left a wonderful mini that Amy Gibson showed us called the Apple Blossom!  Then our table actually won a jelly roll race for making charity quilts!!
We made this great wallet! I absolutely love it!  Now to some swag from my roomie, secret sister, and the lovely sponsors!

These are the wonderful items I got from my secret sister.  Before the retreat, we signed up to be a secret sister and you surprised your sister with gifts throughout the weekend.  Wow I was lucky!

My roommate and new best friend made me this great bag.  How freakin cute is that!  It is huge also and great for retreats.  I just love her!

These are the contents of that wonderful bag!  So much greatness!

I actually won a couple things.  I won the block raffle.  I got these great 19 blocks to make a quilt.  I really need to get on that.  I also won that lovely bundle of Alison Glass fabric! 
This great stack are my purchases from the LQS there in town.  Yeah I went out of control lol!

This is the quilt top I brought to work on.  I didn't finish it there, but dd when I got home.  Don't even get me started on this pattern it is not one I would ever recommend to anyone lets just say that! 

I will leave you with more random pictures to drool over lol!  If you ever get a chance to go to a retreat do it!  You will not regret it!

Wait I almost forgot!  Look what I got when I got home...
