It is gone now but WOW what a surprise. Our retreat guests from the north escaped their winter weather and were greeted by our record breaker of a snow storm. The wind was crazy, the rain as well as the snow. This did not dampen the spirits of these quilters. I took them on the shop hop of the local quilt stores and we all enjoyed going to the quilt show at the fairgrounds. We had one lady that had never been on a retreat or been to a quilt show. She completed not only one top but 2 others!!! The massages were most welcomed as well as the hot tub.There were many funny stories that came from this retreat. What happens here stays here..... Enjoy the photos and see what is coming up in the near future.....
