Quilting Retreat at Callaway Gardens

Here we are at beautiful Callaway Gardens.  It is a beautiful place and a wonderful place to hold a retreat.  Here is our sewing area.  My machine is on the right and Robin is using the one on the left.  Maetha is in the middle.  Two samples of the retreat quilt are on the chairs – Robin made the one on the left and I made the one on the right.

Here are the goodie bags – the theme of the retreat is Run Away to Callaway so we have hobo sticks with bandanas on the end to put our goodies in.

We had the choice of three different bandanas – birds, wildflowers or butterflies.  Robin and I both chose butterflies.


In the afternoon we had a Chocolate buffet – yum!

We also have a few special projects to work on – I cut kits for Christmas table toppers and here are the ones Robin and I made.

As usual, they are exactly alike, only different.

More fun in store tomorrow.
