Weekend Retreat

I attend a quilt retreat this weekend at the Lakeview conference center in Elkhart, Texas. This was the 10th anniversary of this retreat. My very first quilt retreat I attend was this retreat. I am still attending (in self-defense! NOT REALLY -- just kidding). It is a great group of ladies and we have lots of fun.Here is the group picture that was taken this morning. Back Row (L-R): Joyce, Brenda, Katie, Brenda, Kathleen, Bobbie. Middle Row (L-R): Susan, Kim, Kathy, Carolyn, Anna, Brenda, Carol,
Sitting (L-R): Michelle, Joan, Vicki


Each year, we choose a project to swap at the next retreat. This retreat, we swapped buildings to make a "Our Town" quilt. There were 10 swappers who participated. Watch for future posts showing pictures. This year we decided to swap homemade pin cushions for the 2010 retreat.

We had a great show 'n tell that I will talk about in a future post.
