I meant to show you pictures of my retreat...
a few at a time...
but since the week is almost over I am just going to bombard you with
lots of photos today.
We had 46 wonderful women attend the retreat. It's a smaller number than
usual but it was a great event never-the-less.
Mostly because everyone brings a great sense of humor
and wonderful attitudes to this amazing place!
People came from all parts of California. From as far south as San Diego.
From the San Francisco Bay Area (go Giants) and from
Northern California too!
Even though we work hard from way early til 11 p.m. we
do find time to stop and enjoy the scenery.
One of the things we did was to have a show and tell of the quilts made by Ruth Kingsland.
She passed away this year, not long after learning she had cancer.
Her daughter came from the Bay Area to share her quilts with us one last time.
Ruth usually has a large group of friends with her... I missed seeing them this year.
Several of the quilts were from Bunny Hill patterns. But all of her quilts were amazing.
The weather was absolutely gorgeous the entire weekend.
I love the retreat because I get to see my favorite people
and spend some time with them.
This is Wanda and her entourage is in
the photo above!
Old friends got together!
New friendships were made!
Peggy and Beverly are the sweetest people...
Do you see the views here?
Proof that quilters are the nicest people.
I think everyone was having a hard time waking up on Sunday morning!
It was a long weekend! I gave a little tutorial on a
cell phone caddy, a Cathedral Windows pillow, and a Spider Web quilt.
There was also a Mystery Quilt project... hmmm, and what else????
