There are 16 of us here, retreating....as you might say. And we are eating for 50!!!
The food is so incredibly delicious. Chicken and dumplings and strawberry shrtcake, huge slab of the tenderest roast beef and sweet potatoes with hot apple pie and vanilla ice cream. And BACON!!
The weather has been glorious. It turned slightly cooler this afternoon, just what you want to feel way out in the country.
I finished the Saints. I finished the Southwest. AND........drumroll please........I finished Parenthetical. All 24 blocks are squared up and will be put together tomorrow morn.
Ann and Alice are working on their mystery quilts. Both are about the same place with very different fabrics. I love seeing how people interpret the quilt in different ways. November is the big reveal.
The big exciting things have been Ann's slotted ruler and the mustache trimmer. And the chocolate covered raisins, for me anyway. I do love me some chocolate covered raisins.
In fact, I think I am gaining 20 or so pounds on this retreat!!
