Retreating is FUN !

Retreat was so much fun. We had a horrific storm Friday afternoon near dinner time but other than that the weather was picture perfect.

This is a picture looking from the back porch down the meadow to one of the lakes Saturday morning. I had already had coffee and breakfast by then. I like to sit out on the porch in a rocking chair with the coffee in the morning but because it is later in the year than we usually go and it isn't daylight savings time yet, it was dark at 7:00.

This is a picture from the same spot Saturday afternoon. Isn't it beautiful? The leaves hadn't changed as much as I had hoped but gorgeous nonetheless.

Yes, I did do some sewing. In fact I got an entire wallhanging top finished. I hope to take a picture of it tomorrow and post then. I have some handwork to do on it that I will finish up tonight.

We had 282 registered for retreat this year which is the most ever. What a great way to spend a fall weekend .......... with 281 of my best friends in a beautiful location ......... quilting!

One last picture...

Blessings, Cathi

You captured the feeling perfectly. I'm still recuperating from the fun.
