Getting ready for the Fat Quarterly Retreat

Uploaded on

Tomorrow I’m off to the Fat Quarterly Retreat. I’m excited and nervous all at the same time. And looking forward to seeing Nicole again, yay!

If I can fit it into my bag I’m going to bring this floss box. I like having a selection of colours with me! I’ve surprised myself that I’ve actually taken to winding floss around bobbins! I find that really tedious, so I only do it when a skein starts to tangle too much. But it does make it easier to fit more floss into the box.

Luckily, the large compartment is just large enough for my embroidery scissors (Fiskars, in case you’re wondering). And I made a wee pincushion to fit into one of the smaller compartments. Now if someone would invent a collapsible hoop that would also fit in the box and I’d be all set to embroider on the go! :-)

Photos from the retreat next week – unless I’m too exhausted! ;-) If I have time while there, I may post a few snaps on Instagram (I’m @carinacraftblog). I’m especially looking forward to meeting Lucie Summers and taking a class she’s teaching.

I hope you have a fun weekend!!

xo, Carina
