    I leave for my quilt retreat in 10 days - 5 days of quilting and sleeping and eating!!

    Because I am getting excited I wanted to show you pictures of our "hanging of the quilts" from a few years ago - these are service project quilts the retreaters made and turned in at the retreat!

    Isn't it beautiful!?

    Holy Hannah! I cannot make up my mind which one I like the best. You had better get the Marines to guard them. They are too gorgeous to leave alone.

    It's so much more than beautiful--
    It's a rainbow from hearts filled with love.

    It's loving stitches to bring warmth and a smile to someone in need.

    It's so many hugs-to-go.

    You gals are awesome. :D

    the Fall retreat is probably about 70+ and the spring retreat is less at about 50-60! I've only been to the spring retreats so this will be a treat to be up in the northwoods in the fall - I have such a great DH to let me do this when we have a 6 year old and an 8 year old!!

    Beautiful quilts and a lovely way to show them off. Great job to all.
    I leave on thurs the 16th for quilt camp up in Door County, WI can't wait, 4 days of quilting, quilting, quilting or whatever you like to do with your time. We pre shop on the way up there. I have been cutting out stuff to work on, so while there I can just sew. It is really a great time for all of us. We make some really nice friends while there.
    Have a great time at your retreat. :)

    have a great time at yours too!! Your plan is exactly my plan, we shop all the way up and all the way back - I am also in the process of cutting out my stuff so I don't "waste" time up there cutting instead of sewing! I leave on Wednesday! Wow, Door County this time of year - gorgeous! We go up to northern MN, about 20 minutes south of Walker so it will be beautiful up there too! :D
