Brigit-Carol Posted: Mon, Feb 23 2015 2:31 PM

25 of us are braving the ice, snow and cold here in Branson.  Thankfully the hotel is nice and warm and the fellowship with other quilters even warms us more.  We are all enjoying ourselves immensely.  Beth and I will update this thread as we are able.

 We will not go hungry!

Brrr!  View from sewing room:

I like the way you have the tables arranged this year. Keep the pictures coming for all of us retreat-wanna-bee's.

Thank you.

Roxana - Thanks but I am only when I can take a break from sewing.  all of the pictures so far were from Sunday and Monday.

 

Today in the morning some of us took a field trip to Ackfeld Manufacturing.  Just like last year we were warmly received an we are awaiting the delivery of our items!  Then we visited at The Quilted Cow.  They have moved to a new location on the way back from Ackfeld which makes it an easy stop.  Quilts and Quilts is in the process of moving and we may be taking a trip later in the week to see the new digs.  More tops have been completed since I returned and I will post them later.

The following are pictures this morning of the room with Maggie's jelly roll race "racing" around the room.  She is doing a jelly roll race with all the strips she won last year playing poker
