Some Retreat Pictures

Attending the retreat this weekend was a group of sock monkies - such handsome fellows!  If you take note of the second chap, you will see that he is somewhat ananotomically correct.  They came along with Lori and her sister.   

Here is one of the stars from the paper piecing class given last fall by Linda, one of the members of our guild.

The star was done by Helen, pictured here.  Helen is one of our long time guild members and one of the nicest women you could ever meet.  Coming along with her to the retreat is

Trish - can't you tell immediately they are mom and daughter?  Trish works on her scrapbooking while spending the weekend. 

Here are two more of the quilters joining in the fun - Steph and Debbie.  Stephanie made this lovely Christmas tree wallhanging that features some beautiful little beaded pieces made by a woman who is now deceased.  It is a gift for a relative of the woman.  The little beadings are just incredible - try clicking to enlarge the picture and maybe you can see the lovely intricate little peaces.  Deb seems to have cornered the market on polka dot fabric and is making a turning 20 quilt using the dots.  That will be a great piece, Deb.

This is installment one of the retreat.  Stayed two for installment two in a couple of days!!  More to come.

Carol, the "sock monkeys" are darling. I am sure you had a lot of fun making them!

I plan to go on a retreat the end of February and looking forward to this fun even for 3 days. It is always great to be with friends that share the same passion you do.

Hugs, Carolyn
