Catching Up On The Fun



I thought that the better way to share the fun was to put it out over 2 days...after all, if I put all the photos in one slide show you would have to call in sick to work!  The retreat was as expected...7 quilters with all their loves, fears, projects, needs, expectations put into one house for 3 nights, 4 days. It is an unusual relationship, a very special one.  We have been sewing together for over 15 years.  We   have watched our children grow up, become adults and branch out into their own lives.  We have supported each other in birth, death, divorce, illness and now the first of us retired last week!...and, we continue to quilt.  This type of relationship requires the same kind of commitment as a marriage.  Grace, forgiveness, joy, laughter, tears and lots of quilting/shopping.  We have laughed together, cried together and we have PO'd  each other but like loved ones we are committed to the Fabric Stalker Family.  As one retreat winds down we are already scheduling the next...Fall in Black Butte!  Enjoy the shopping trip to La Pine...tomorrow the chaos! lol
