Retreat Report


My friend Pat invited me to her guild retreat and we had so much fun. Located in the mountains about an hour from where we live, it was the perfect location for a couple days

of sewing, chatting and lots of laughing. Our sewing space was in this great big hall with this cozy fire to keep us warm. A time to catch up with some old friends I hadn’t seen in a while, and time194188 to make some new friends….oh yeah, quilts to share~196

195186 185 25 women, so chatting and laughing was HIGH on the agenda. We played Left/Right/Center. Every one brought 3 fat quarters

192and woohooo the fun began, with one lucky player getting ALL the fat quarters (you can never have too many fat quarters)!!!

I worked on my Between Friends quilt…guess counting isn’t high on my list because I thought I only had 10 more to do and actually I had 16. Got those done and all the 4 patches 209…..I am eeeking my way to the finish line and think I will be meeting my April goal on this one.

Reality has set in and I have settled back in to getting things done around the house…there was too much goofing off going on! We have had lots of wonderful visits this week with the little dots and our girl was here overnight…………very lucky mom and nana!

Hope your week has been good so far. Happy Thursday everybody!

UPDATE.....Friday Night is the Friday Night Sew-in!!! Come join the fun!!
