The sewing machine called my name

I finally heard the call of my sewing machine.  It feels like it has been forever since I had a chance to so some sewing.  I have three quilts that are ready for binding.  I know it looks like a holiday explosion, two Christmas quilts and a Halloween quilt.  The two Christmas quilts are presents for my two great nephews, they are just alike except one has a green border fabric the other a black border fabric.  I have decided that everyone in my family needs their own Christmas quilt.  The Halloween quilt, I have to get the binding on before I head off to retreat later this week (more on that later)  I even managed to finish the latest installment of the Star Crazy blocks.  I am really anxious to see how this quilt is going to look when it is finished.  After doing some sewing I started looking through all of my projects trying to decided what to take to quilt camp this week.  I decided not to do the project that Sharon and Shannon were offering.  I liked it, but it involved buying a new ruler and I didn't want to go out and buy more fabric.  I am trying really hard to work from my stash.  Considering how big my stash is that shouldn't be a problem.  I am really excited about retreat this year, my friend Becky is going for the first time.  The only bad thing is I am having an allergy attack and hope to be feeling better before we leave on Thursday morning.
