Back from Retreat!

What a fun time we had at our retreat at Quilt House. It's such a lovely place for a get-away! The four of us had a wonderful time and really got a lot done! I finished 4.5 quilt tops---three Yellow Brick Roads, one Twisted Rail and one-half of a blue indigo snowball and stars, plus we managed to get in some shopping at three quilt stores. Whew!!! We were tired, but feeling oh so happy---doing the happy dance!

The pictures show Debi and Sally and Marge working away and some of the things that we worked on. Debi made the beautiful Carpenter's Wheel. Sally is standing next to the YBR that she helped me make---she wanted a lesson on how to make it so we had a "class!"

The last picture shows us sitting on the swing in the front yard for a "group" picture. Starting in the front row it's Debi, and Marge, then in back row it's Sally and me.

Retreats are such a good way to get away from all the cares of home and just concentrate on sewing with no interruptions---you really feel that you are accomplishing something-----and you are!!!

Let quilting help you make someone smile!

Thanks again for the lesson!!! I am a visual learner, and it was great...makes sense now. Hope I can do one on my own!!! :>)
It was terrific to see you and spend more than a couple hours.
Look forward to our next gathering, and another retreat in the future!
Tell Maynard to fly safe!!!
