2010 October Retreat

This retreat was pure delight from beginning to end. There were 22 ladies in attendance, 8 of them newbies. However those eight blended right in and by the end of the first night everyone were old friends. They had such a great time they asked me to extend next year's retreat one day… which I did.

The weather was great even the rainy day because it didn't slow us down at all.
The ladies got right to sewing on Wednesday night.

By Thursday afternoon some were already pin basting their projects, and others were shopping

We had show and tell of course, Miriam showed two projects

And Cheryl showed two also, including her 2009 Retreat project.

Cathie showed three

Grace showed us two, including one from a long time ago Delaware Quilts class

Toddy showed off her flannel jacket which everyone wanted the pattern for

Carol showed us two of her almost finished projects

Doris and Michele showed projects from years past

Nancy showed some swap blocks and Joan her table runner

Helaine and Denny shared some of their beauties

Sandi proudly showed her first ever scrappy quilt

When show and tell was over a few ladies headed to the pool… I think

The next day Jean and Sandi pin basted Sandi's retreat project and Michele finished hers

Carolyn brought several projects to work on, including these lovelies

Laura worked on Jake's animal quilt and Helaine chose Bonnie Hunter's Many Trips for her scrappy retreat project

Saturday evening was Pollyanna time, here are Barbara and Carol choosing their gifts

Grace got a thimble flower pot and Toddy tried to get a pretty pink bag

Steph stole Linda's gift so she had to go pick another one

But that got taken from her so she stole her first gift back from Steph who then went and stole something from Joan

And that sent Joan on the hunt for something good… I don't know who ended up with what when it was all over but we sure had a good time.

Sandi started and finished (except for binding) this at the retreat, and Jean showed us how far she got on her second retreat project. They were both over achievers but we might let them come back again anyway

Roommates Denny and Carol
Newbies Linda and Steph (Steph drove all the way from Georgia to this her 1st retreat)

Joan finished a baby quilt and Linda got at least two rows done on her retreat project

And then it was Sunday and we had to pack up and head home.
Newbies Toddy, Nancy and Grace
and I don't dare say oldies so I'll say long time retreaters Carolyn and Doris
