Last week...

...I went on quilt retreat! There were about 100 of us set up in the main conference room ...
Everywhere I looked there was an abundance of fabric...


And quilting supplies galore!


And of course plenty of treats for sharing...


This is pretty much what every table looked like...full to the brim with fun fun fun...we all had a blast!


This is Amy from American Quilting who hosted the retreat. What a cutie! I just love her...thanks Amy!

Once again you outdid yourself and put on a fantastic retreat:)


There were 4 of us on my table....this is my friend Susann who sat across from me...


...and then my friend Judi who sat next to Susann....


...and Rae Ann who sat next to me.



We all had a great time together and did alot of sewing...visiting...eating... and laughing.

And we did plenty of goofing off at the same time...lol.



I was surrounded everywhere by all kinds of quilty goodness...here are a few random shots of what I saw...




















What do you think?...Does it look like fun to you?

I heart retreats:)

Everything that I saw...I wanted to take a picture of.

Can you believe that I took 236 pictures!

Obviously I can't show them all but I have so much more more to share with you throughout this week ...including my class and trunk show with Sandy Klopp!

.... so stay tuned girls!

Looks and sounds like a whole load of fun. I went to a smaller version in Sydney on Saturday - it's such fun to get together with other crafters and be surrounded by gorgeous creations.
