Cutting fabric, packing for retreat

I've spent part of my weekend cutting fabric and getting ready for a biannual quilting retreat that I'm going to for tomorrow and Tuesday. Just one night! You'd think it'd be simple; you should see what I've had to pack! I bring my own bed, a twin air mattress with bedding, so I've got a little extra.
I'm not bringing the quilt I'm working on for my brother since the fabric I was hoping for didn't arrive in time. So instead, among a few small projects, I'm going to work on adding more blocks to the postage stamp quilt. The little squares of fabric in the small plastic container in the top of the photo are 1 1/2 inches. That's the box I'll be taking.
The rest of the squares are assorted sizes that I cut from scraps as I go along.
I won't be here on my blog for a few days.

Have a great retreat. I'm sure all the packing and planning will make for a profitable time.
