Yesterday’s Texas Tumbleweed Workshop during Spring Retreat with the Pieceful Spirits guild held at Lakeshore Lodge on Lake Okoboji was a riot of activity, a flurry of scraps, humming machines and loads of laughter, everyt 25 hing a retreat should be!
The day flew by at break neck speed – especially when I was running between two sewing areas, one in the main hall of the lodge, and the other directly below in more conference space.
25 students upstairs, 24 students downstairs..it can make a girl’s fitbit overheat! LOL!
But it’s a good thing – this way I had access to BOTH the upstairs and the downstairs treat tables. I needed those steps!
What a fun bunch these folks were and I hope they will have me back. Lake Okoboji is a great place for a retreat!
Those Minnesotans can get a bit “Loon-ey!”
I love it when sisters come retreat together!
Oooo! Loving Holly’s Hot Pink Delight!
Doesn't this have "Good N Plenty" written all over it?
Our lunch break show and share was amazing!
I have combined all of the retreat photos and the show and share into one YouTube slide show! I hope you enjoy it!
As I sat here and edited each photo, my heart is so grateful for the hard work behind the scenes to pull a large retreat like this together. This was just a fabulous experience!
When the workshop was over, I hopped into my rented red Jeep Patriot, and headed off on a 2 hour journey to Sioux City, Iowa.
As I checked into the Stoney Creek Lodge, I was greeted by a whole new group of retreaters ready and eager for two days of workshops here as well!
And truth be told..there are some who attended in Okoboji who will be HERE as well!
And they say that quilting doesn’t make the world go round! It certainly does MINE!

Off to grab breakfast and get this retreat day started!
Have a great Saturday, everyone!
