My Retreat buddies...(starting from the front l to r) Michelle, Robin, Liz, Lori, Nancy, Patti, Conni, Connie, Sherrie, Penny, Me, Peggy, Vickie, Laura and Michelle. My sister Debbie didn't make it into the pic, she left a bit early. Friends from Canada, NJ, CA, NC, WI, MO, IN, NY, TX, MN and ID. Two sets of sisters. What a great time we had. I forgot my camera gosh darn it. But hop through their blogs for tons of pics.
We played from midday Wednesday til breakfast on Sunday. Started missing them as soon as we all parted. One of the best retreats I have hosted honestly. It just worked. An amazing, loving group of ladies.
On the very first night a good ole Indiana storm blew through. The bottom line is that Conni's car got hit by a fallen tree and totalled out. This happened right outside the sewing room and about 20 minutes after the girls had just came in from a food run. The tree could have just as easily smashed through the building and landed on the girls. At the very least, busted out the windows behind where several were sitting. God had His protective hand on us that is for positive!!!
I am excited about sewing again. The retreat really motivated me. This has been a rough winter for me and I have just not been up to much sewing/crafting. Just did a ton of crocheting from my chair. At retreat I completed 2 twin size disappearing 9patch quilt tops, a wallhanging/table topper and a couple of small items. This was huge for me. So yayaya for me!
I will post pics of my retreat projects and goodies as soon as I get photos taken. I will be needing this week to recoup. But it is a good worn out. :o))
Girls....love you all! Thank you for an amazing time.
