I attended our Guild’s third annual retreat this week and thoroughly enjoyed the fellowship, good food and time to work on two projects.
My bow tie quilt is a top except for the units that will border it. I still have approximately 100 of those to make.
This Sue Garman project was going on its third annual retreat. I would love for it to be completed before next year’s event.
Of course, there was a somber undertone to our play days. Although we were far enough inland to escape direct impact. Everyone had family, friends or property at risk from Hurricane Harvey. There was no television at the retreat center but cell phones never stopped ringing as we got updates. Pleas had already been made for loved ones to evacuate and vacation homes had been secured as best they could before Harvey’s landfall. All anyone could do was wait for the storm to play out while we dealt with our collective anxiety by sewing. The full extent of what will need to be done for recovery is still unknown.
