I was lucky enough to get invited to a quilt retreat with these 4 wonderful ladies.
Lynn, Mary, Sharon, and Ann
You know it's not every day that you go out on the limb, and invite someone you have never seen face to face. Sharon and I have known each other for 4-5 years online thru quilting boards. I've done some swaps with her and Mary, but never met them otherwise.
It was a big leap of faith, as you never know just who is at the other end of a keyboard here in cyberspace, but WOW what a great leap it was. I felt like I had known these gals for years.
I boarded a plane Easter Sunday to head across country to O'Susannah's Quilt shop in Watkins Glenn, NY for a 4 day retreat. Having never even been to the area, I had no idea just what to expect.
Our home away from home was up above the shop. A quaint place all decked out in Shabby Chic style.
There were 3 bedrooms, 2 baths...
and a kitchen and dining room...
but the best part was the huge work area...
And an ironing area.
We were surrounded by inspiration!
And snugly quilts to wrap up in.
I'm hoping to get some photos from the gals, and will show you just what were were up to next time!
