I'm back. Mary did a spectacular job with this retreat, she made us name tags and booklets with schedule of events and listings of LQS's (she defaced my booklet), she and her DH made us a wonderful BBQ the night we arrived and you can't imagine the number of donations she gave out, I don't think anyone went home without a prize. A fabulous hostess! Sarah and Mike have a beautiful lodge, spacious clean and picturesque. Mike took us for sunset boat rides on the lake, it was a beautiful and relaxing way to end the day. That is assuming that nightfall means bedtime, oh nooooo, not for these ladies, 5am seemed to be the bedtime for some of these gals. You can but imagine the laughter and silliness that takes posession of an adult woman after midnite! Did I mention those gremlins! Those are some very imaginative creatures. Oh the stories I will treasure. I did not take pictures as I am challenged in that department but there are pictures etched in my mind that force me to break out in a solo act of laughter. Sue climbing over the rail at 2am to get Barb's cane that fell off the second level (I think Nana threw it off, just kidding, she was too busy cooking her fanny in the jacuzzi). Janice singing her worm song. Not to mention that Elf, Suuueee...I want my elfimony! I am still checking for "Chiggers"!
You may never hear this again but...Come to Florida, it's much cooler!
I am posting some pre retreat pictures of Gini ,Nana, and me staying at Diana's we went on some tours of The Cumberland Gap. I can't even describe how beautiful it is , I hope the pictures will sahre some of it with you .Barbara

Awesome pictures, you captured that sunset beautifully.
Notice the very cool Zebra sewing chair. Gremlins got it one night and hid it under Barbara's butt!
Barbara, thank you soooo much for the great pictures! Looks like everyone is enjoying themselves. And Maddie is such a cutie patootie posing with her little quilt.
Hope everyone is home safe and sound, well rested today and quilting up a storm.
