Agatha's Road Trip

Just a quick hello today friends. I've got a lot of organizing, packing and pre-cutting to do today. Tomorrow is Day 1 of my annual November retreat. Agatha and I are going on a road trip!

This year is extra super duper exciting for many reasons. The big one is that I will be joined by two of my Krista Sista's!! Krista (Lolablueocean) and Krista (Spottedstonestudio) are coming on retreat. They'll be road-trippin' together from Seattle. It's going to be hilarious to have three people with the same name together - that never happens to me, and I can't wait. Rounding out my 'new friends from blogland who I get to hang out with in real life' gang will be Felicity - yep, she's coming, too! Plus all my fabulous regulars, without whom this retreat wouldn't happen, year after year.

I've got lots of projects lined up that include Christmas gifts for family, ongoing work on a quilt for our bed and a new little pattern test (thanks to Laurraine) that I'm very excited about.

I will most definitely NOT be making another one of these (I mention this because people keep asking!).

Tune in next week for a full report, and what I hope will be lots of fun pictures. Rumour has it there may be snow in them thar mountains this year, but it's warmed up a bit today so I'm worried my planned snowball fight might not happen.

Have an awesome retreat! That's wonderful that all three Kristas will be getting together. I've never had a friend named Holly and I can't imagine going on a retreat with two more Hollys.

What won't you be making another of?

Funny! People keep asking me if I'm making a bag this year too - I answer with a resounding "NO!"

Hey, do you want me to bring some of our snow with me? We've gotten 8 inches since last night. I'll make sure to pack a hat and gloves just in case.

Have fun! My BF from college & I have the same name & we had a third Karen living in our sorority house with us so we went by K1, K2 & K3...otherwise it does get SO confusing!

Dianne said...

One more sleep!! Woot Woot!!! So looking forward to meeting your blog friends.
Are you SURE you don't want to make another one of those bags?? HeeHee!
Oh and Krista of Spotted Stone fame, please leave the snow where it is at least until we arrive on Friday afternoon - the drivers here don't do snow so well.

Angela said...

Sounds like a blast! I'm jealous already!

Sana Saroti said...

Have fun Krista! I hope I get to experience something like that at some point in my life! I checked out the post about that beautiful bag you made last year. Great job! Lovely fabric!

Laurraine Yuyama said...

Hey! Thanks for the little plug. Hopefully the pattern was easy to read. How long was the retreat and where is it? Sounds like tons of fun!!! Hugs, L
