I'm back from retreat and to say it was wonderful is an understatement. It was beyond FABULOUS! We sewed alot, talked alot and laughed a whole lot! The most fun you can have with your clothes on! I met some amazing women. I hope I can do them justice with my descriptions.
First of all, there were Toni and Doris. These two ladies come from one of the "I" states and they are NUTS! (Luv y'all mean it!) You don't want to get in between these ladies and fabric. It won't be pretty. However, don't worry, you will hear them before you see them.
Next,was Terri. She makes beautiful bags and the woman is another serious fabric shopper. If you meet her in "real life", check out her purse, you will be impressed!
And then there is Rene', she is a lovely, lovely person. She was also the only other southerner at this retreat (which was a good thing, because although we were all speaking English, there are somethings that need translation.)
Next is Shelly. She is a genuine cowgirl and she has a cowboy named Scott and a pair of pink cowboy boots to prove it!
And then there was Mary. Mary has a pretty new grandbaby and the pictures in her purse to prove it, too! Mary's sister lives near me and when Mary comes to Texas I'm taking her to my guild for show and tell. Yipee!
And then there wasAndrea. Andrea is a beautiful, sweet Mormon girl and she is a "sick ticket". If you see her on the street, ask her what Pilates can do for you. She is also a good quilter on her way to being a great quilter and I can't wait to see what she produces on her journey.
And then we had the amazing Amanda Jean. Do you want to know if she is really crazy? She is! Hey Amanda, you know I think you rock! I can't wait to see what you do with your batik scraps!
And last but certainly not least, was my fabulous friend Miss V. What can I say about her that I haven't said before? You are an amazing quilter, a wonderful friend and an incredible person and I sure am glad I know you! (Especially since you are the one that invited me on this trip.)
It was an incredible weekend, ladies and I can't wait to do it again next year!
