Retreat was last weekend.
I always take a picture of this snag tree on the first day of retreat.
I've been coming to this retreat center for 20 years and
probably started the pictures 15 years ago.
One day it will no longer be there but it sure is standing mighty right now.
There are lots of old Maple trees there.
I love all the colors so much.
I always feel my Gramma Maple when I look at them.
I love this picture so much that I use it as my phone background.
Sweet Nadine, retired kindergarten teacher, read us a story.
Wonky Donkey is now our new favorite.
If you haven't heard of Wonky Donkey,
search YouTube for it.
It's worth the watch.
There were lots of horses up on the hill from the sewing room.
These are my chickens.
These are our friend's chickens.
They go to Arizona for the winter so we are fostering their girls.
We call them Bill's Beach Babes.
We are lucky to have 2 chicken yards and 2 chicken houses.
The Babes are working hard in my garden which is their yard.
We get plenty of eggs every day!
I love that there are green eggs in my bucket.
I will be adding hens that lay pretty eggs to my flock in the spring.
I started quilting another quilt!
This Sampler is one of my favorites.
It's called Grandmother's Choice: Votes for Women.
I started this in October 2012 and it's aged long enough.
It is also the last of the quilts that were on the basted pile.
I added 400 new basting pins so I can baste a few more quilts now.
I got the idea from my friend Julie.
The basting is what holds me back from the quilting.
Now I can get in basting mode and baste as many as I have pins for
and I will be ready to quilt when I want to.
I have the most awesome friends!
Sharing such awesome ideas!!!
I am lucky to be in this great community of quilters.
I use size 1 pins with these grip covers.
I borrowed this picture from Amazon.
I also bought my covers from Amazon.
I worked on putting the covers on the pins during tv time in the evening.
It took 3 nights and a pair of little needle nose pliers to get them done.
Little Jessie is King of the Big Bed.
He's so tiny but he thinks he takes up all the space.
He came to visit us at retreat and the gals were shocked at how tiny he is.
He's only 7 pounds but he's mighty.
I hope everyone has a wonderful week.
