Quick Retreat Update

OK, Friends, I'm trying something new today.  I forgot my camera so have taken a few photos with my tablet.  Aside from the terrible lighting, I haven't figured out how to zoom or get things straight, so please bear with me.

We're missing a couple of friends, but things are perking right along.  In between lots of conversation and a bit of frivolity, I've managed to get bindings on two quilts ...

True Blue in Black and Cream
Elegant Garden
True Blue is a Miss Rosie pattern.  I don't remember which book I found Elegant Garden in.

And remember the yellow and grey Exploding Pineapple blocks?  The rows are together and the border I first rejected as overwhelming has made a comeback.

The party and gift exchange was today.  Lots of lovely and useful gifts, but this one takes the cake:

Nancy R knows me too well!! 
I think I need to change my profile picture.

Having a great time. Will give a full report when I get home.
