It's September! What happened to August??

I don't know where the time goes.  I did want to tell you that I'm going to my first Quilt Retreat for 3 days!!  I'm very excited and I hope that I don't forget anything and I want to get a lot done.  I won't have to worry about cleaning as they clean the rooms, dishes - no they will do the dishes, clean anything - no!!!  We'll this will have to be a good week-end. :) 
I've never met the lady that I'm rooming with but I've heard she is very nice.  I hope my snoring doesn't drive her insane!!  My granddaughters say I snore as of course I'm not awake to hear me.
The quilt retreat is about 50 miles away in historic Madison Indiana and is taking place at the State Park where they have a hotel.  You can check it out here
I've been to the park before but not the hotel.  I just know it's going to be fun!!!!!
This is the quilt my 9 year old granddaughter is making.  It's all different cat fabrics.  She wears that hat all of the time since she is a big Harry Potter fan.  She's been wearing it all of the time since January or there about.

                                      Here I sewed some strips together that I had left over for a
                                      baby quilt.  All novelty fabrics.
                                           With all the reorganizing I found this one and several more
                                            old quilts I have purchased over time.  Great antique fabric
                                            but I don't know if I'll ever do anything with them.  May E-Bay.

Well I need to get ready for work and I hope everyone is having a great day or evening!!!
