Retreat has come to an end. What a wonderful time we had.

Saturday we had 15 ladies, Sunday 13 and Monday 8. There were two ladies that could not join us due to illness and scheduling. Sorry we missed them.

I am going to share a few photos with you.....I am still missing two disc's but I have not finished unpacking. Hopefully I will find them because they had some great photos on them.

Here is Pat and Patty pulling a name from the basket for Monday's winner.

Here are the three winners.
Saturday - Pat Erickson
Sunday - Bobby Adams
Monday- Patty O'Hare
Congratulations to all three. They each won a $20.00 gift certificate.

Here is the group winding up Monday night.
We were all tired but had enough fun that the tiredness did not matter.
Left to Right:
Patty O'Hare, Bobby Adams, Sheila Ockey, Pat Erickson, Carolyn Brown, Cheryl Mitchell.
Missing is Jeannie Sisco - She was already resting.

Patty's Buck Eye Beauty

One of the Coalinga girls lap quilts. They were all making the same top so I am not sure who's this one was.

Sheila's Blue baby Quilt.
She also worked on a yellow one and a red, white and blue one. Isn't this just wonderful.

My Applique Round Robin

Here is my almost finished Round Robin. I still have to add the bottom border but can't do that until I get home because I forget to bring the material with me. I am really happy how the applique part turned out. I am working on a Christmas Tree project. I am adding beads to it and it is really taking its time.

Just had to share

Yesterday was the opening of the New Thimble Towne with the new owner Jeremy Swaim.
A few of us drove over to be there for opening day.
Jeremy was so excited and so tired after moving for two days. They put in some long hours and it really showed.
The shop looked great.

Here are a couple of photos of the inside of the shop.
Things were brighter and totally differently.
It is a brand new shop.

Here is another view.

Of course I could not resist having my photo taken with Jeremy. This is Diane and myself.

There are tons of new materials coming, they have been ordered but won't ship until after Houston and the vendors get back home.
You all have to go look at the new quilts hanging on the wall. Jeremy has been a busy quilter.
Well, time to get off of here and get some work done.
Thanks for stopping by. Happy Quilting, Paula
