Nuts & Bolts
It's a long (and not very kind) story about how this retreat became known as Nuts and Bolts, so I will spare you the details -- except someone ate all the crust off the peach cobbler ... (and wasn't invited back) ...
I headed out early on Monday and after a brief stop at Whittle's for some backs, it was on to Loucon Training and Conference Center near Leitchfield, KY. I like to use retreats to finish up projects where I have plenty of space to properly measure for borders and backs. So that's where I began -- with the inner and outer borders for Zagnuts.
Next was the back for Zagnuts, one of the pieces I got at Whittle's.
Next I cut borders for Holiday Frost. But it was getting late in the day and I didn't trust myself to get them on right so I cut the back for it from a wide back from Whittles and sewed the borders on first thing Tuesday.

As I said, Tuesday began with borders on Holiday Frost. Then I moved on to borders for Spare Parts Bright.

So Day Three begins Bloggin' and Froggin'! After a shower, that is.
PS: WiFi connection here is spotty, at best, so I'll try to catch up on comments, both incoming and outgoing, once I get home.
