Some girl time..

I have had the most enjoyable weekend (not productive) for a long time.. My sewing group hired a hall and we locked ourselves in for most of the weekend.
Friday night was a late one and Saturday we sewed from 8.30am till 10pm at night... Oh what joy.
There was lots of quilts, Santa sacks, peasant tops & dresses, monogrammed pillowcases, skirts, and lots of chatter..

I procrastinated for way too long and drank plenty of coffee and probably just enjoyed having female company, instead of kids talk for a change.. oh and there were are a few sneak trips to spotlight too!!!
I did manage to finish these few things and of course a sew-athon wouldn't be complete with several half finished things, you know, the elastic to put in and the fiddly bits to go!! On the pile you go..

I am planning a sewing weekend for the first of the year.

It is my resolve to be more productive and more social at the same time.

I am mailing out save the date cards next week.

Sounds like you have a great time and you have confirmed my plans!

I am jealous everytime you write about your sewing group.... No such things exists where I live - not for the under 100 anyway. I keep thinking I need to start my own..... Do you pay to go? You are a wonderful seemstress by the way, I love your style.
