Dryden Retreat Day 1

SHEESH on our way back from supper out, a large sized deer jumped out of the ditch from between a couple of busnesses and ran across the busy Trans-Canada and RIGHT in front of my car.  Just lucky I saw something and slammed on the brakes, arm out to keep Sylvia back and lucky no one was on my ass end!  I avoided contact just barely.  
Well Day 1 of the retreat here in Dryden ON is over for us two - just too tired to start something new at 8:30 so home to rest we went.  I prepped veggies for my contribution to goodies for tomorrow - already lots of sweet stuff!  So here's what we accomplished today.
1.  Sylvia finished sewing up 12(?) Log cabin blocks early on while I finished off my Fold Snip Tear Drop and Pass kid friendly quilt top started at Adina's retreat last weekend.  Sylvia was glad I picked a different sashing/borders fabric than originally planned AND it was bought from Julia very recently - put to good use it was!
2.  Both of us sewed up infinity scarves from Australian fabrics that Adina was demoing last weekend too.
3.  Then both of us worked on this weekend's Bargello table runner project and I finished off the inside part - tomorrow it's decide on my borders and maybe quilt it too???
Besides all this a particular fun trouble maker on the guild, Joan, informed Sylvia before I arrived here that the two of us were going to provide two hours of quilting know how tomorrow morning along with two more couples!!!  Hmmmmm!!!  Here she is preparing kits for us but won't give any details until start time.   I'll get someone to take pictures for me.
