Retreat at Alford Inn

I am "finally" getting around to posting pictures from our recent retreat at Alford Inn in Van Alstyne, Texas. Here ya no particular order.

Rhonda was diligently working on a commissioned quilt for a lady. She was really concentrating and focused!
Kathleen was determined to get some of her WIP's completed.
The following are the BOM's from the internet that Kathleen has been working on. She is really doing a great job "keeping up".

Of course, we have to EAT while we are at retreats! This is the group at the Durning House Bed and Breakfast. The placed was really neat and I loved their decorating.

The following is the group at a local Mexican Food Restaurant (don't remember the name right now). The food was "okay" but the margaritas were to die for!!!!

Kathy and Molly loving those 'ritas!

MARSHA, MARSHA, MARSHA! 9/16 inch, 9/16 inch, 9/16 inch. We kept hearing someone muttering these words over, and over and over. We realized it was our Wacky Buddie, Molly. Molly is a pattern tester for Marsha McCloskey testing a new feathered star pattern. Here she is working on that block. Lookin' good Molly!

TA DA!!!! The block is done!

And here is the completed block. Way to go Molly! We are sew proud of you!

Of course, you have to drink a glass (or three) of wine while retreating. Here is Kathleen enjoying the wine. Really...she drank it out of a glass and not straight from the bottle but it sure makes a great picture!

Here is a picture of a Halloween table runner that I was working on.

Annie was busily working on her nickel square project.

Molly and Rhonda are taking a break from sewing and checking out the world wide web.

That's all for now folks.......I'll get some more pics posted later.
