Wine, Women and Chocolate

Hello Everyone,
It was a great first, full day of quilting at Sew'n Wild Oaks retreat.  This was actually taken during appetizer time today.....we don't tipple during the day!

I'm not sure what I was talking about, but everyone in the lecture area was smiling.  What a great group!  I do mini lectures throughout the day.  If the quilters are interested in the topic, they wander on over to the lecture area.

After lunch, a few of the girls went for two walks around the lake.

 Insert sad face looking at our dead and dying trees here in the mountains.

Oh by the way, a whole lot of quilting was happening!

Isn't this a nice idea that Rose made for her block layout sheet for Heritage.


Shelley won the first giveaway, a layer cake which was generously donated by Marcus Fabrics.

Patty doesn't have a tail, just miles of binding.

The food has been excellent. 

 Our brunch today.

I love Terry's version of Madrigal.  This is the first one that I know of made in all batiks.

Love the center basket.

Some wonderful, quilted goodness is happening up here in the mountains.  Wish you all could see it in person. Today is another full day of fun, learning, quilting, eating, chatting, walking, laughing......


  1. That wine, thread catcher holder is a hoot! Whomever has that should patent it and sell it at please sell it at quilt shows alongside Mr. Joe's Strip and Sew! And if you read that sentence again, you might think I'm tippling, too...LOL. What beautiful weather for quilting in the mountains!

  2. Wow...just wow! What beautiful work.
