Let the quilting begin! The Sew'n Wild Oaks retreat #1 for 2016 started yesterday afternoon at Snowflake Lodge located in Blue Lake Springs in Arnold, California.
We went from an empty room at 2pm.....
To a full room by 3:30pm.
Here's the unloading crew. As cars pulled into the unloading zone, the girls made quick work of transporting machines, supplies, and fabric into the retreat area.
The girls went right to work creating.
At 6pm, we all headed to dinner at Wilder's Last Resort.
Man can these girls cook! We had a feast.
We decided that I need to collect everyones recipes and put a digital cookbook together.
The evening was so pleasant, we were able to sit outside and enjoy the great outdoors.
Let the quilting begin in earnest today!
As a side note, when Gail and I were walking down our street at noon yesterday, bear-bell-less, we saw a bear down by the lake. We were far enough away to feel safe and just observe. Then we made a speedy retreat for home. It sure gets the old heart pumping!
