Good day!! I am back from my Lake Tahoe retreat!!! Lots of fun, laughter and meeting new and old friends! Warm memories of sitting by the lake marina sipping wine and enjoying the sun, creating and finishing projects, shopping, good eats, and of course, socializing with friends. Thank you to Linda and Teresa, the hostesses of the retreat for their hard work!!
Wonderful memories of the weekend were slightly tempered by seeing Lynn off to the train station, then rushing back to my local hospital where my daughter was at. I spent the entire evening with Amy in the ER, where they finally diagnosed her with a kidney infection and ovarian cysts. Amy is a trooper, she just started college this week and went to class yesterday and plans to attend 3 classes this morning.
Speaking of college, my first metal art class started last Saturday. I was in Tahoe, so I needed to drive home from my retreat, attend the class, then drive back to the retreat. It was good that I made the effort to attend as there was a long waiting list for this class and anyone not attending the first class was dropped. I am taking this class with my friend, Faith, who I met about 10 years ago when we both used to advocate for special needs students. Can’t wait to start working with the metal!!
Back to quilting now…. I have two quilts for a show to do, then I can re-focus on my own show quilt. I will share pics from the retreat and I also have a new tutorial for Mokuba Freelace to post. Hugs, Carla
