    Cool Headed to my 1st QUILT RETREAT

    I am heading out for my 1st Quilt Retreat in a few hours. It is a three day retreat in a lodge a few hours south of me. The group of ladies that are going are amazing women and look forward to spending the weekend with them. Ill take pictures to share with everyone when I return.

    The best part is we are expecting a huge storm this evening (after I arrive). Snowfall totals 10-15", what a great weekend to be stuck in a lodge quilting, sitting by the fire being surrounded by the hobby you love and great friends.

    See you all Sunday!!!!

    Sorry for the double post. I seem to be having a problem, so I will just take a break from posting.

    Have a great time at your first retreat. Nothing better than being able to sew and be with friends at the same time with no other obligations.

    Have a great time and we will save a little of the UP snow for your return! I plan on having my own private quilt retreat this weekend. Will be snowy, so nothing better to do than to quilt!

    I will look forward to hearing about it. I have never gone on a retreat, and I confess the idea is sooooo tempting!!! Have fun!

    When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000 step process."

    Sounds sublime!! I have never been on a retreat before, I would love to do one. I hope you have lots of fun and I hope you get snowed in and then all the snow melts right before you have to leave!!

    Cheers!

    Envy. Jealousy. yes, I'm struggling! I LOVE to quilt "in the snow!" Unfortunately, I live in north Texas and we don't get much fluffy white stuff. Our retreat is in 3 weeks and I CAN'T WAIT!
