Description

Recently a small group of women got together in Mt. Shasta for a 5 day retreat...it was wonderful to get to know them better and share laughter and conversation...as well as a good amount of quilting. I came home with some amazing handcrafted items which I want to share here.

  • A special quilt in honor of my sister, Paula, who recently passed away after a long battle with colon cancer. Paula was supposed to be at this retreat and Audrey's amazing quilt was a reminder that her spirit was with us.

  • A beautiful mini star quilt by Mary was one of the gifts for the Yankee swap - I was SO happy to snag this one (sorry Cathie!)!

  • Terry made me a unique name quilt and included my nickname (Turbo!) ... love the sewing machine!


  • Cathie made adorable thread catchers for everyone at the retreat - I so love this!
  • Mary made wonderful drawstring bags...and each had a pin that represented who we were :) Yes, I love my stash!

We were blessed with amazing weather and gorgeous sunsets which lit up Mt. Shasta. Truly a trip to remember!

Love seeing them all again. I have my thread catcher all ready to be used today and my mini ready to be hung BUT not until I do some reorg of sewing room (may have ordered a few things online to help) and my lanyard and buttons are hanging on the wall. What an amazing time it was and so special.

Caribousmom

Yes - the lanyard and buttons too! I should add these to this post - but have yet to photograph them! LOL. So much fun!

I packed all my gifts in my carry one to be absolutely sure they didn't get lost. It's so wonderful to have gifts to associate with everyone

Sewhappy It was a lot of fun. Truly memorable.
