Quilt retreat

Last night I met with 7 other quilters for the final plans for our annual quilt retreat. We've been doing the retreat for 2 years, this year will be the third year. We rent a cabin in the mountains, this year the cabin will be in Twain Heart. Each year we have rented a different cabin, its hard to find the right cabin as we need lots of electric outlets (for the sewing machines and irons) and lots of room to set up the sewing machines. Last years cabin had way too many steps to climb and lug heavy sewing machines, all the fabric we took and of course the suitcases. We were wore out before we started sewing!

This year's cabin has no steps up and a hot tub! We've never rented a cabin with a hot tub before. I hope this cabin works out. Its has a pool table which we will use as a cutting table and ironing station. Someone we know has allready used this cabin for a quilt retreat and said it worked out well had plenty of room for sewing so we are all excited.

Last night we talked about the food we are bringing, who's taking care of dinner each night. We take turns cooking someing different. I am the chief cook for breakfast because when I'm in the mountains I like a big breakfast. I cook pancakes, eggs, hash browns and bacon or what ever they all want. We eat a light lunch and then have a regular dinner. friend T is bring white wine. We are planning on having a good time and get lots of sewing done.

We are leaving the morning of Sept. 20 and will return on Sept. 23. Can't wait! Now to wade through the stack of UFO's and figure out what to bring to work on.
