Whew! Retreat is just so much fun – but really, 30 quilters?! There was a lot of sewing, sharing, laughing, games, prizes and fun, fun, fun. What a wonderful group. And I had the privilege of meeting some for the first time and there were a few that hadn’t been in a while. There are those that come every year. All lend so much to the retreat. In addition to North Carolina, they came from South Carolina, Virginia, Alabama and Florida!
Here are some of the pics – another took some and am awaiting those to be sent so there will be a second post soon. Each day began with a great breakfast to fuel us for the fun and work ahead. Lots of serious discussions too!
Beverly and Janet were obviously absorbed in their projects.
It’s not all sewing. Adrienne did beautiful painted rocks while Diane knitted scarves for a charity program.
Jean made a fabulous cover for her sewing machine and completed a nifty reversible apron.
One pretty and warm afternoon we had no choice but to go to Kilwin’s for ice cream. This has become a very yummy tradition!
Betty Ruth was delighted to win at strip poker – things got a little rowdy!
Lots of fun and laughing, but I have to admire the concentration and seriousness.
Pat was determined to complete her first quilt – a flannel rag quilt.
Be on the lookout for Retreat Wrap-up Parts II and III!
