Our annual PTA retreat has come and gone and it was wonderful as always...our 12th year and we're still going strong. We've all seen changes over the years...First year, we had the refrig filled to the brim with wine...as well as wine being on top and to the side of the refrig...think we drank every drop. We also stayed up a lot longer which we no longer do and probably got more accomplished...well, now we're sewing at our own slower pace but still having a blast.
Barbara was working on polka dots but came to a standstill and thought her piece needed something more...know it will turn out great...sometimes a short time on the design wall to just sit and do nothing and Voila...an idea!!! We've all experienced that. Georgia was working on a Quilt of Valor...and looky...looky at Georgia's face when she discovers her mistake. We all voted on whether to keep it there or not...but she decided to make it perfect...
Lynne is pondering....don't know over what but I do like what she's done so far. Our retreat is also a time of sharing. Cathy showed us this great foot grip to prevent your machine power foot from moving (below left). Marene went home and made one out of shelving grip material...really a pain to make and said worth every penny to buy it. Kate was making a quilt from a book she recently purchased....(right) and we all loved the book...had so many great quilts to make and I don't even like piecing...but for this I would make an exception.
So we play games at night....usually Rumicube - our favorite. Linda was very uncomfortable after a full day of wearing a bra...we all know that feeling. She unclipped it without telling us...looking a little odd, we started commented on it and laughed hysterically when she told her story as only Linda can - 2 sets of....well ....you can guess..... It doesn't take much to make us happy and laugh...how lucky we are!
