The Alderwood Quilts blog is for customers, friends and quilt enthusiasts. . Sue and her husband also own run a small lavender farm along with the quilt shop. You'll see lavender and other gardening topics, as well as knitting, recipes, photos of kids and pets.. and whatever else comes to mind.
My guild had a retreat this past weekend. What fun!
These are my "buds". I knew most of these women, but there are only a few I knew well. That was BEFORE the retreat. Now they are all very special to me. Our guild is relatively new- formed a couple of years ago. We have about 65 members. Eighteen of us went on the retreat. We all worked on our own projects. It was just a weekend to get some UFO's finished, and to spend time doing what we love in the company of others who share our passion for quilting. We are fortunate to have a retreat center operated by the Sisters of Saint Mary of Oregon. They feed us VERY well and treat us like their personal house guests. As my aunt would say, they have the "gift of hospitality". By the way--- I'm 4th from the left in the top row.
I'll share more about the retreat in another blog post tomorrow night. For now.... enjoy looking at my friends' projects. Aren't they great?!?!?!?
