Is that frugal? I guess it depends on how you look at it. It's local, hosted by the quilt shop. They are calling it a no frills retreat, which means they are not catering meals in for us. That means it did cost considerably less than the last one they held. I have some TV dinners to take along, however, I also have cash on hand in case others are sending out for something that sounds really good.
I have 7 or 8 different projects packed to work on, including some for gifts this year.
I will share a few more of the gifts that I have given as gifts in the past again this week.
This is a lined fabric bag that I made for my middle daughter, Heather. I had learned about making the lined bags by making walker bags. I messed up and the pockets ended up on the outside. I wasn't about to take it apart, so it stayed that way.
I had run across a panel that was to make a bug book. I chose to take the pages and line them up as a quilt top instead. It was given to my grandson Cash as he hadn't gotten a quilt from me yet.
I have Christmas book panels now that are packed to work on this weekend. I will be making those into quilts instead of books as well.
I look forward to sharing more gifts with you next week and also look forward to anything you would like to share with me as well.
