My fabulous set-up crew and I had an excellent start to my Sew'n Wild Oaks retreat yesterday while we lunched on the deck at Snowflake Lodge in Arnold, Ca.
Quilters started to join us as they trickled their way to the retreat from all over California.
They settled in and started right to work.
Once most of them arrived, I welcomed them with my opening remarks and the plans for the next four days of quilting fun.
Here is just a snippet of some of the projects they are working on.
Now Cindy has the right idea! She brought her rocking chair as she plans on doing handwork over the next few days.
At 6pm, the quilters came to my cabin with appetizers and desserts in hand for our first dinner together.
There were food stations around the great room. I really need to put a cookbook together of our feast.
We will meet up this morning at 8am to begin the teaching, quilting, eating, and fellowship combined with ripples of laughter throughout the room and walks around Snowflake Lake.
I wish you could join us. You will be there is spirit as I document the retreat over the next few days. It is such a special time of togetherness with those who share the same quilting passion.
