    Well, I'm back from my Retreat a little tired and a little broke. :lol: The fall colours were wonderful.
    A lot of quilting was done, in my case unsewing :cry: together with a lot of eating (with a little bit of wine and chocolate) and lots of laughter. We all pitched in with the cooking and cleanup. With all the projects I took, I was only able to work on 2, neither finished but I made a good start and I will post pictures when they are completed, hopefully before Christmas :wink: On one of the projects - a bed runner, I got it all together and when I looked at it, it didn't look right so I took it all apart(grrr) but after I got it apart and I looked at the picture again - I had done it correctly :oops: but I just didn't like it so I used my own layout and I'm much happier. Anyway, I'll post pictures of it later. Here are some pictures of the retreat

    We had 2 non quilters there - they did scrapbooking in the ajoining room. They were almost as much fun as Quilters 8)

    Looks like you had a blast! I'm jealous--my friends don't quilt. I'd love to do something like this!
