Sew'n Wild Oaks Retreat Day 1

Hello Everyone,
The retreaters have arrived all safe and sound to Snowflake Lodge for my retreat.  Jeanne graciously presented everyone with a special bag to hold their goodies.

 Our quilting area looked like this when the day began.

Then the girls filled the space with the first show and tell of the week.  Kristi and Helen just took Edita Sitar's class at Quilting in the Garden.  This is what they competed in class.

Kristi is now ready to add the borders to Journey's End.

Mary finished her Heritage and it is ready to be entered into the Independence Hall Quilt Show next month.

Here's another gorgeous quilt made by Mary.

Joy picked up three quilts from her quilter on the way up to the retreat.  This is her quilt for Project Linus.

Here's another beauty designed by Joy!

 ....and another.  A quilt along from Temecula Quilt Company.

Joanne's appliqued quilt is simply amazing.  Just one more border and she's one!

Lisa's quilt is also over the top gorgeous!

By the end of today, Patty will have all of her Walk In The Park blocks sewn together.

Some of the girls took their first walk around the lake.

There is a hint of color in one of the trees.

Dinner was served around 5:30.  It was delicious.

After dinner, we headed to my cabin for dessert.

The talent in the room is beyond brilliant!  The friendships are forming, the bonding has begun.  Stay tuned for more from these women.  And remember, what happens at the retreat, stays at the retreat.
