Fall Quilt Retreat Day 2

On the first night away from home I never sleep well and last night was no exception--I am in a top bunk above my friend Jeane, she didn’t sleep well either as my tossing and turning kept her awake.  But we were both up and at them early this morning.  It took me all day and half the night but I finished all the blocks for Ellie’s quilt—YIPPEE!!! 

We’ve all had a great day of sewing, laughing and eating again.  Look what the wonderful cooks here at this resort provided for brunch--Brunch Here are some of the projects the ladies are in the processing of completing:Barb's Christmas Tree Napkins Barb’s Christmas tree napkins.

Tonight we had a Mexican food buffet and I was elected to make margaritas—my famous buttermilk margaritas—and no one could guess the secret ingredient—buttermilk!

The fish tacos, enchiladas, rice and beans were excellent—the bread pudding was to die for.  We are all ready to waddle off to bed!

On a more somber note, one of our members was unable to join us yesterday but arrived today.  Shortly after Jill’s arrival, her cell phone rang with news that one of the long time, well loved members of our community had been killed in a horse accident, Wyoma, rest in peace and may your family find comfort in their faith.
