2011 Fall Retreat

This past weekend found me
(and 17 friends from all over North Carolina)
in Montreat, NC.
Salem Stitcher does all the leg work getting and setting up our little cabin in the woods. It is suppose to be a quilting retreat.....but it turns into a period of catching up with old (and new) friends who have not had time to sit and be girls. Our everyday lives and responsibilities prevent us from doing this.

Here Quiltkemosabe, Ms. Goodneedle & Pat are focusing on their catching up. (with a glass of wine of course)
Of course there was fabric flying right and left between our catching up, also runs to the local quilt shops, lunch in Biltmore Village, Starbucks, hikes up a mountain and the list goes on.

Here is one of three projects I worked on. There is still 64 flying geese to be made for the border.

The Fancy Feather birds are now together in one place. It too lacks the final border. This will be the first UFO from the weekend that will be finished.
Sorry there is not a picture of the project I did get finished. The battery in my camera died. But the battery is in its charger so in the next day or two there may be a picture of it.
Again I want to thank Salem Stitcher for all her hard work setting up this wonderful time away with the gals!
