Back home from retreat!

My batteries are recharged and I am raring to get into the studio! We had a wonderful day despite it raining all...the...time. Soggy was the word, but we were in the sewing room getting our groove on and making quilts. I didn't take pictures until the last day, so you get to see what all the girls did. It was a perfect getaway, and I think we all had fun.

On the last day, I got the call I have been waiting for since Paducah. My new Bernina is finally here!! I high tailed it home from the retreat and Mr Wazoo and I took a road trip to Chattanooga to pick it up. We made a pit stop in Ooltewah, TN to check out the quilt shop there. Awesome!! I bought enough fabric to make a sweet quilt, as well as a bath of fat quarters for another BQ quilt. Then it was off to the Bernina store, and home again.

This quilt was in the shop, and I got what I need to make one!

I'll have some pictures tomorrow, since I forgot to take my phone to the studio in my excitement to try the new behemoth 770. It is beautiful, and sews quietly and with a perfectly formed stitch. I can't wait to take it through it's paces. That will happen on Sunday. Until then, good night, dear readers, I am off to bed to dream of quilting.
