Quilt Retreat

I was lucky enough to spend the weekend with these amazing quilters at a wonderful state facility east of Atlanta. It is called the Charlie Elliott Wildlife Center. We've been going there for quite a few years now and really enjoy the beautiful facility and the surrounding woods. The food is wonderful and the people who make and serve it are so kind! Our group had 32 this year and we spent 3 days sewing and eating and laughing. It was a really great way to spend the weekend.

We have been retreating as a group for twenty years now almost...hard to believe! The photo above is my friends Kathy, Mary Ruth, Me, and Darlene. We had an identical photo taken 16? years ago on the front porch of our cabin when we were first timers. (I'm pretty sure I was wearing the same red coat! LOL) We were roomies and had so much fun together! All these years later, we are still roomies and still having fun! I am so incredibly blessed to have these women in my life.

And yes, we did play with some fabric too! We stop at Intown Quilters on the way. We have lunch at    the Square Perk in Covington, and then make one last stop at Patrick's before the sewing begins.

I am slowly sipping coffee this morning and remembering what a good time we had. I hope you had a good weekend too!

Enjoy every stitch!
