|Quilters of the Corn|
I'm back from my retreat... I got lots done, including talking and laughing. Teresa of Stitchin' Tree Quilter's Cottage suggested a picture by the corn, so we had fun with that. This was our ninth retreat together and the fourth time to stay there, and it's even better now as she has opened a small shop that is connected to the retreat center. Want to shop in your jammies...you can! Want to shop late at night or early morning? you can!

We gathered around the cutting table to play Teresa's Traders Dice game with 2 1/2" x 6 1/2" rectangles and the LCR dice game with fat quarters. Our challenge for the next retreat will be to have something made with the rectangles we have left from playing the games.

|She quilted it and bound it...another finish!|
|Diana made some cute IOWA potholders and table mats for gifts. Someone is very lucky!|
|If you look closely at the white and gold fabric, you will see the counties and towns of Iowa.|

When I left the retreat, I headed to Earling (my hometown, about 25 miles away) for a going away party with my family for my youngest daughter, Rachel. She is moving to Baltimore this week and I'm going along to drive her car there and help her. We leave Wed!. I'm excited to see the eastern part of the US. I've only been east once, to Washington, DC so it should be fun, once we get there. Looooooong drive first. Then I will fly home next week. If you've been there or live near, what are some good quilt stores in the area? I will be there for a few extra days so we have plans to do some sight seeing and shopping.
