I returned yesterday from our guild’s second annual retreat at the Compass Retreat Centre in Mt. Calm, Texas. Like our first retreat, it was tremendous fun and a very welcome break.
This is the project I focused on, my version of Sue Garman’s “Good Golly” pattern. I began piecing the blocks at our last retreat and had all my half square triangles ready to set this year.
With help from my friends, I was able to make some border fabric decisions.
The retreat center has an attached fabric store with lots of gorgeous batiks. Retail therapy was involved…
…and chocolate was involved; both from the snack table and the wonderful desserts served with meals.
…and inspiration was involved too. Here are a few of the projects from the other retreaters. I did not manage to get pictures of them all. This is only a sampling.
We managed to get a little silly along the way.
I’m glad to be home again to hubby, doggies and my own bed; and I’m already looking forward to next year’s retreat.
