3rd Annual PTA Retreat

We were welcomed to Lake Logan and our 3rd annual retreat with our fiber group PTA. Nine of us quilting buddies emerged upon these beautiful grounds for 3 days of fun, sewing, sipping, laughing, eating, you get the idea. We originally planned on going in January but the snow prevented us. At the time, we were disappointed but March turned out to be so much prettier and less iffy weather wise. The view of the lake is everywhere.

We rent a house for sipping and sleeping along with the community center for sewing. We are very diligent in making sure we have a "well stocked" refrigerator.
We have our meals prepared for us in the dining hall and they do a fabulous job!
We sew during the day and get very silly with games and other stuff at night.
We had many lovely projects in progress during the day. Here is a quilt that Lynne made. Her and Kate made a backing while there; they plan to send it as a "comfort quilt" to Japan.
Barbara worked on this easy scrap quilt of purples. While she was out of the room, having her massage (yes, we have a masseuse come in), we all decided it needed a zinger so we added touches of orange - think it looks great and Barb liked it too.
Mary B was working on this Flower Garden quilt, all hand done and so many wonderful prints.
I love, love the piece Gen was working on - what a great use of plaids.
Janice was working on this striking piece done with Batiks and bright solids.

And Mary S was doing string piecing which she plans to use as a throw for TV watching!
Georgia was doing a wonderful piece that will be used as a CD cover for a childrens album. I'll let her share that with you - it's just adorable! And I was continuing with my funky houses - coming out cute and will share them with you a little later on.
More on our retreat to come...
