I'm off to a retreat......

And nothing could be finer!  :-)  I've been busy packing, planning, and preparing sewing projects, and it's been non stop.  Then family gathered for the super bowl......which really made for good times......and of course good food.  Now we are off for Bryce Canyon and I will be back blogging again this next Monday.
This is a teaser.....You will have to imagine and visualize what this will eventually look like.  I have it all ready to do some more stitchin......which I hope to have finished when I return home.

Bruce helped me hang my Sweet and Simple Quilt.  The title for the quilt came from the Laura Ingalls Wilder's quote....."It is the sweet and simple things in life that are the best after all."

A close up of some of the blocks.

A tribute to my finest achievement in this life.

Love this is one of my favorite.

This says it all.

I hope to have many good and inspiring things to share with you when I return home.  Enjoy your week and may you find time for the things you love.
"You are not here merely to make a living.  You are here in order to enable the world to live more amply.  With creative vision, with a finer spirit of hope and achievement, you are here to enrich the world, and you impoverish yourself if you forget the errand."  -Woodrow Wilson
