Spent this weekend at a retreat in Greenbriar in Eustace (sp?) Texas. It was heaven. 11 of us and 3 whole days to quilt. Just made one mistake all weekend--stayed up until 5:00am on Sunday morning talking. Should have just stayed up all night because when everyone started moving around and I smelled coffee, I was up and at it. Should have stayed in bed longer.

The retreat was out in the middle of the boondocks on 90 acres of trees, shrubs, grass, blue bonnets and paintbrush. And we saw a fox and a cat. The food was wonderful--yes, they cooked for us while we quilted. I'd go again in a heartbeat.

I worked on one quilt all day Friday and then Saturday morning I found that I had not brought enough material to finish it. So Saturday afternoon everyone piled into cars and we went to a local quilt shop and when we got back I started working on something else. I've almost finished it now and I'll post a photo in a couple days.

Saturday evening I made 5 pillowcases for my niece and her children. I'll post photos of them too.
