so this chick walks into a quilt retreat...

So this Chick walks into a quilt retreat, and the Girls are all like, "Chick, where did you get that rocking bag?" and the Chick is, like, "Girls, I made it." And the Girls are like, " No way!' and the Chick says, "Way!"  They were impressed by her mad style, righteous color choices and the ever so snazzy silver pleather handle and bottom.


And then of course they rejoiced once aware of the copious amounts of fabric and yarn the bag could hold!


Next,  there may have been some merry hoopla and fist pumping and maybe even some chicken dancing, but who could say for sure, because it was a QUILT RETREAT after all, and so of course there was a lot of alcohol involved.



True story.  {I think}

More tall tales of quilt retreat adventures to follow, stay tuned, you aren't gonna want to miss these ;)

Sounds like somebody's bag was a hit and the retreat was a great success!

It was a fabulous weekend. Drinking wine in flannel pj's added bonus, but having you there was the BEST part. And that is a rocking bag!!

Love the bag! Love the fact that you came out to BC for a quilt retreat! Love the picture in my head of quilters doing the chicken dance!

Ok now let's just be honest here. It's not like the bag was Exactly DONE when you arrived....um if I remember correctly it was thrown at a wall followed by a full blown toddler temper tantrum. And the said chicken dance is probably better left unspoken about.

That's definitely one sweeeet mutha of a bag, lady. I ditto Krista - having you there was indeed the best part. AND having extra K3.5 time on the drive there and back was very special too.

Judging by the bag and the scenery, I'd say it was a great reteat. Oh, and the alcohol consumed makes it extra special.

I had no idea there was chicken dancing. I must have been in a wine induced coma. Thanks for your help to this 'knit-wit', it was great to meet you.

what a hoot! I have to say I'm glad I missed the chicken dancing (that and the gymnastics!) but I definitely enjoyed the wine and being a table mate!

Oh I can't wait for the next installment.
