It was time again for our quarterly Ocker Retreat this past weekend and what a great time we had. Food was fantastic as usual and we had a great group of ladies attending the retreat. Seems to me there were more “scrapbookers” and “crafters” than usual, which was good, plus we had several younger gals who were there making wreathes with fabric strips. Pretty cool I must say. Then we had several children who had accompanied their Mom or Grandmother. What a joy it was to see the younger ones joining in on the crafts.
The temperatures outside were a tepid 100 degrees…..but we were cool and comfy inside and the soft hum of our machines could be heard above all the laughter and chatter. I could bore you with additional comments and details, but instead I’ll let the pictures do the talking!
Hmmm…seems like quite a few were making “Christmas” items!
And last but not least…I made great progress on my granddaughter’s quilt…yea, the top is done!! Here’s a sneak peak of it before it goes to the quilter later this week. Again, what a difference from the first one…and the colors came together so beautifully. The size is approx. 100×90″ so hubby could only hold about half of it up!
Finally, here’s a cute quote to remember….You haven’t had enough coffee until you can thread a sewing machine while it is still running! Till next time….
