Lake Logan PTA Retreat

I just returned from a very magical 3 days with my PTA fiber group - our second annual retreat...and we thought we couldn't top last years, but we did! Our retreat is held at Lake Logan in Waynesville, NC. We have a large community room for sewing, and many other things such as
A table with books and magazines we bring to shareincluding the "Diary" which Mary B has made and keeps for us - just us - all our adventures, parties, trips, quilts - How special is that!Sometimes there's an unexpected present like this wonderful vintage apron which Connie is modeling. She collects them and wears them - June Cleaver anyone? It's embellished with old linens on the top and pocket, what a treasure.And what a surprise - everyone received an antique hankie and card from Mary B. My card said "Lets share outrageous stories and eat impossibly delicious cake, invite someone dangerous to tea" you know anyone dangerous? I don't think I do, although it might be exciting.Sometimes we take a break to dance or do aerobics, lead by our amazing instructor - Miss Georgia!We rent a big house equipped with a fireplace.Our Happy Hour includes lots of wine for sipping.
And our own Mary S who opens and tests each bottle for us - can't be too careful.
The house is a great place to relax, just sit and put your feet up.
And back at the community room, the sharing of quilts is inspiring.
This one by Gen Grundy has such beautiful quilting.

And Georgia's - part of a barn series she's doing.
The detail shows the photos of barns incorporated into the quilt - a nice way to use photos.
And I love this one, another in the barn series - love the perspective.
Stay tuned for more quilts and quilt projects.
