I've officially run out of adjectives to describe the last three days at my Sew'n Wild Oaks retreat at Snowflake Lodge. In a nutshell, I wouldn't have changed a thing! It was perfect, and the bar is set very high and will be hard to top next year.
This group of ladies is responsible for bringing joy, and beauty to the world. Each and everyone of them is a treasure, and I feel so lucky to have them as friends. The girls filled the room with laughter, fellowship, and exquisite quilting projects! They are holding just a small representation of what they completed during the retreat.
Kathy is making Lisa Norton's Under the Oaks pattern.
Several of the girls were making baskets for Once Upon a Vine.
Patti was in mass production flying geese mode. The real geese were with us everyday just outside the classroom area.
Evelynne is adding to her pile of blocks for Summer's Blush.
Nancie was preparing lots of applique pieces.
Laurie's even blanket stitches were true perfection.
As soon as Melody finished her Harvest of Hope, she immediately started in on another project from a class that she took at In Between Stitches.
Here's another block from my Country Corners BOM program.
Martha made a ton of HST and had fun arranging and rearranging them.
What a difference it made to place the blocks on point. We gathered around the design wall and discussed the colors of setting squares and setting triangles. It was a great teaching moment.
More cute, little 6-1/2" baskets! Three of the girls were working with kits that I put together for the pattern. I love them!
Christmas was in the air with the Nostalgic Pillows and Quilt blocks.
Some of the shirts the girls wore were so funny. It's hunting season here in the mountains.
Some of the girls took one last walk around the lake before lunch.
