Two birds with one stone

I’m taking a week off of work in early May, while I play the piano for a show at the Gallo Center for the Arts. My plan was to take it easy during the day and do my show at night. A couple of days ago I got the great idea to do an at-home quilting retreat in the daytime, then do my show at night. I can do two significant things in the same week. Another factor is that it may be a few months before I ask for time off again, so I’d might as well do a retreat now.
I’ve done several quilting retreats in the past, both at home and out of town, where I quilt for hours each day. During a retreat I stay away from regular television, listening only to a music channel until I’ve finished sewing for the day. That keeps me focused on quilting, instead of whatever is happening on the screen. I choose a quilting technique book that I haven’t tried yet and just go for it—using stash only. No fair running to the fabric store!
I’m looking forward to my retreat. Now, which book will I work through?
