Sewing room update and upcoming retreat

My cutting area is now much more useable and I can reach the majority of my stash better.  I like it in this corner, I can get good lighting here and It's so much less cluttered. 

I'm redoing the shelves to make them tidy and more pleasant to look at.  The pizza boxes are cut pieces for log cabin blocks and the boxes are UFO'S or possible quilts.

The upcoming retreat will be in Ala. at the beach house we went to last year.  I'm bringing a UFO, John's quilt, Kaffe pyramids, and some exchange blocks I need to do.  I'm thinking I'll bring my Featherweight for backup.  Handwork of course, both hexie's and embroidery
I have to bring plenty in case a miracle happens and I finish something! LOL I'm looking forward to this trip.  Lots of fun and quilt shop hopping too.

September already!

Last month ended with a compete washout physically.  I been recuperating from stomach and energy problems.  This has passed and I've been feeling well for the last two days.  

So while Ashleigh was here, she helped me rearrange my sewing room.  In order to do that everything was moved off the floor, which seems to be a major storing place for me, to the hallway to do the rearranging.  Here's what it looked like after we finished.

I'd call this a total mess

So needless to say I have my work cut out for me.  I'm using the adage  "the way to eat an elephant is one bite at a time"

Disappearing 4 patch Swap
I did finish this top that was an Apple Crisper's project.  I have backing to get the back done.  And will make The blue binding.
