Yesterday, the quilters migrated north to Snowflake Lodge in Arnold, CA for the beginning of my second Sew'n Wild Oaks Retreat of the year.
Appetizers were on one table, and desserts on another.
It was a beautiful early Fall evening out on the decks to enjoy a wonderful meal and conversation. I found myself sitting back, and thoroughly enjoying the bursts of laughter.
Here I am with my friend Bettie. Our mothers started the first playschool in Paradise, California in the 1950's. Bettie and I go waaaaaayyyyy back. In fact, I learned how to ride a bicycle at her house. At the time, there weren't many sidewalks in Paradise, so I learned how to coast her bicycle down her street. I thought I was so daring!
Old friendships will be renewed and new friendships will blossom this week. I have a feeling in my bones this group is going to be a great one!
