This is the view from Kathie's deck in Cannon Beach. It was rainy much of the weekend, but out in the distance you can see the Pacific Ocean and Haystack Rock. We were cozy inside and set up our projects in the community room.
Gale was working on a heron which was coming together nicely.
This is a very unflattering picture of Terri, but you can see the beautiful piece she was working on.
I put together two small tops. The first one was a crow and books. The second was a teapot and oranges.
We listened to music, talked, soaked in the hot tub and stitched. We ate well--cooking some meals in and eating some out. We took a break and went to the Quilt Shop and downtown and stopped for coffee at a little espresso shop with the most beautiful bathroom we have ever seen!
We played Pictionary after dinner and cracked each other up with our drawings. We saw a quilt exhibit at the History Center and were offered a show there several months from now. Wow. That was pretty exciting and we are going to do it.
Here we are: Terri, Linda, Kathie, Gale, and in front, me and Beth.
I can't say enough good things about being part of a group like this. We support each other, we encourage each other and our once or twice yearly retreats give us all a chance to work together in an environment where we can get input and suggestions from one another. We all come home inspired and recharged.
