Shirley and I left home at the very early hour of 7:15am but it was OK, we were on a mission—our fall quilt retreat. Stopped for coffee in Big Timber and headed to Absarokee, Montana home of the Cloud Nine Quilt Shop. Shirley needed flannel fabric for a quilt and I needed not a thing but a smaller than usual amount of fabric jumped in my bag before I could get out of there!
Off to our usual restaurant, Cafe Regis, for breakfast/brunch. I had some wonderful cornmeal pancakes and bacon. A delicious meal!
Some of us had projects almost completed and thus were able to hang finished projects on the wall by late afternoon: Mary and her cute little winter quilt. The pumpkin table runner is the one I started before leaving home and the other beautiful white pinwheel one belongs to Bette. My photographs here in this fluorescent lighted room do not show the true colors. We all have our stations set up, some of us are a little more neat than others, this is Gay’s little spot!! and some of us are a little more frustrated than others:
Jeane is deciding never again to make a quilt with that many tiny pieces!
Dinner provided by the resort was spectacular as usual and we enjoyed some great wines brought by all. Donna served us all chocolate wine before dinner—now I could make a dessert out of that stuff!
Off to quilt, back tomorrow!
