Susann's Retreat

My friend Susann has been in town this last week on a retreat with her sisters and cousins. Fortunately for me, the house they rented is right near my home, and I've been able to run over and say hello a few times.

This is their 18th year of going away on a retreat together.

Tables have been set up in the family room.
Some like to quilt, others work on digital scrap booking.

Between working on projects the ladies took time for shopping, swimming at the pool, and going to Tuacahn for a play.
Retreats are the best.

I thought you might like to see some of their quilts and projects that have been put together this last week.

Thread Catcher

Look at these cute little baby shoes!

Thanks ladies for sharing with us

It looks like a fun retreat. Thanks for sharing the photos Nedra. I think we bloggers should have a retreat like this one day. Hugs

What fun, and such great projects they all worked on! Must be neat to have that much creativity at work in one room!

Ok well I'll have to tell Susan I want the thread catcher, shoes and that hexagon quilt. I wonder if she'll steal them for me?

I loved seeing a sneak peak at Susann's retreat with her family.
They have accomplished ALOT of really cute stuff. I love Susann...she is a sweetie and a riot all rolled into a cute little package.
Thanks for showing us Nedra!

What great projects the ladies completed - I love the thread catcher and the gorgeous quilts that they made. Those slippers were fun too.
From the photo, it looks like they had a good time together. The share some family good looks too- it would be hard to guess which ones were sisters and which were cousins.
Retreats are fun - especially with people that you are so fond.
