Things I learned at retreat!

It takes all night to make a pie....(it was a pie pincushion)
I get really stupid about 4 a.m. and it doesn't get better between 4 and 7 a.m.
There is really no reason for me to take projects to retreat because I got nothing accomplished, but had a lot of fun.
When Jill says "No Snack Table" she does not mean it.
I should expect to gain at least 10 pounds at retreat because they feed you a lot and often.
I will never get a quilt for just cutting my finger half off with a rotary cutter. I'll need to cut off an entire limb apparently.
Harvest Spice is mine...all mine...

And finally....
There are no better people in the world than quilters. What a wonderful bunch of women. I'm a very lucky woman to be a part of the Prolific Online Quilters Group. Everyone I met in person, from online, was exactly who I thought they were. No suprises there.

I'll have some pics soon. I didn't take that many. I was busy...visiting with everyone for the most part.
Later....

What? What about cutting off a limb?? You did take home harvest spice didn't you?? And I gotta know, what's so different about 4am from the rest of the time?? POQ'ers are the best people in the world!!

I understand completely I don't know why it took us so long either to do the pie pin cushion. I had such a great time but I must say I got a few small projects done.

oh dear.....if I'm giggling from just your the tiny glimpse of your retreat, I can only IMAGINE what the entire retreat was like. Sounds like it was a silly-school-girl time! How fun!!!

It was all that - and more!!! I also did not get much done - heck, my great Sunday accomplishment was making and pressing binding!!! Will it get onto the quilt soon? who knows - but it will carry some good memories when it does!

Hey, wait a minute! I MADE a quilt for you. It was a very special project just for you. Is it my fault that the scraps I had only created a post-it size pillow? And Jen made you an eye patch. How many people can say that! Cut off a limb...bah, humbug!
