Family and friends are the best! And I couldn’t run my quilt shop without them. Every couple years we try to sneak away for a retreat at The Upstairs Inn ( heard of it?) and enjoy a couple of days sewing, eating and laughing. This weekend was it and a couple of days with these wonderful women (and girls) is so relaxing and just plain fun. Our group ranged in age from 8 months to 75 years young! Babies were played with, stories told, advice given whether it was for paint colors for my remodeling projects or fabric selections for a new quilt and plenty of sewing. I finished two projects and got a great start on a third.
Here’s a few photos of our weekend. If you ever have a chance to get away with friends do it – don’t hesitate-leave the kids-leave the husbands, the laundry, the cleaning, the grocery shopping, the checkbook balancing, the cooking and every other daily household chore you do and get away – nothing, absolutely nothing beats it!
