Annual Quilt Retreat

What a wonderful weekend the staff & I had. This is the retreat group.
It was filled with LOTS of sewing, some un-sewing, several completed quilt tops, totes, bags, pillowcases, pillow covers, table toppers.
This is the beautiful room we spent most of our days in. SEWING!!!
Here are some photos so you can see what we accomplished.
Terri Teeple's Charm Square Table Topper
Teresa Brook's Field of Flowers using a Bali Pop.
Lorrie Danowski used the mini Twister & made 4 place-mats with Christmas fabric.
Michele Klein used a charm pack & made this cute mini quilt with the 5 Inch Twister.
Harriet Cheek was the most productive out of all of us. This is an embroidery that she framed to make a throw pillow for Christmas.
Our nature lesson:
This is one of the many animals that we saw while spending a great weekend in Pine. Each evening at dinner we had 3 deer come into the yard. What a treat it was to watch these animals.
One lesson I learned; never leave your camera charger at home, my battery went dead on Friday so I don't have pictures of everyone. I hope to get some from the ladies. I hope you enjoyed sharing in a bit of our retreat.
Big thank you to Breath of Life Retreat; Candy, Jim, Sharon, Zelma, & Priscilla for a wonderful weekend filled with great food, lots of laughs, and best of all socializing with friends.
