I've NEVER been to a retreat with almost 150 participants. It wasn't even in my imagination! The organizers under Pat Smith's direction did a fantastic job. It takes many hands to pull off a wonderful event. Thank you to all the workers this weekend.
I took the Spicy Spiral Table Runner class. I enjoyed the class and the process so much so that I plan to make a few more. I have a few photos of the class results, with my quilt being first. I'm making it for my mom who loves neutral colors.
Then, we had a scrappy hat contest. I took photos of some of my favorites around my sitting area. A few of them are winners, but I can't remember which one is which. However, the nest won first place.
Here is the raffle table. Can't see all the products, Here are three more shots with close up. I just had to buy a set of tickets. And I did.
See that sewing machine, I could use that for traveling, or how about the Rowenta traveling irons, I could use them too.
I love fabric too, or how about updating some of my rulers. See that Ott Lite i the back. Oh my, I must purchase more tickets. And I did get more.
I'm trying to be cool, but in my head I hear "Oh, please call me number and call it early as I really, really want one of those travel iron.
This post doesn't even begin to show everything that happened at retreat I was having so much fun that I forgot to take pictures. We received very nice welcome packets, door prizes a lot of intangible items that a monetary value couldn't be placed. We have wonder quilt shops from around the state supply our need to purchase "just one more item" LOL, display quilts, etc.
