Oh my dear ladies, I miss you all already!
Today was our second workshop day at Moonlight Stitching Studio and Sisters Retreat –but these gals had been sewing away, some since Wednesday evening when the retreat first opened!
Their first two days they were taught by Jo Kramer and Kelli Hanken of Jo’s Country Junction while I taught another group down in Oelwein for THEIR first two days..and then on Saturday we teachers swapped locations! I stayed with this group in West Union while Jo and Kelli headed down to Oelwein! It has been the best retreat fun ever.
We’ve made lots of memories, chalked up loads of giggles and out right belly laughs, and even sang and danced to the music along the way.
As much as we love the quilts, and the quilting is what brought us together – retreats like this turn out to be more about the PEOPLE and less about the fabric…and we will carry a bit of each other back to our homes, hoping that our paths will cross again down that quilty road.
West Union this morning about 8:45am!
