Retreat is over...

I'm home! Everyone else is either home or on their way. The retreat was a success and there are lots of things to blog about. I will have to spend some time writing posts to tell about the weekend, but I can give some highlights now.
  • It was great to meet the peeps that I hadn't met before!
  • Jen may have figured out the issues with the bobbins for the Mega Quilter.
  • I can not function on 3 nights of less than 5 hours of sleep each night. Why did I need to learn this?
  • When Becca laughs really hard, she turns bright red! It really tickled the rest of us when we could make her change colors!
  • Jen LOVED her quilt!
  • Linda loved her quilt, too!
  • It's nice to have a laundry mistress.... If only the vacuuming had been done... Sigh!
  • Winning prizes is wonderful! Especially when you can share them with friends!
  • But it absolutely SUCKS when complete strangers help themselves to prizes without being invited and then they don't offer a thank you! *and YES, this happened!*
  • All of the luggage, machines, notions and donations fit into 2 cars, 1 truck and 1 van! Woo hoo!
  • Sherry has had a vasectomy.
  • Our Snack Table runneth over!

I can't think of anything else at the moment. I'm sure that I will remember things and will blog about it all eventually!

Sounds like a good time to me other than the vasectomy part lolol.

Becca Quilts said...

I think I changed colors reading this :-) but since there's no mirror on my monitor I couldn't tell for sure.

I can add one....Harvest Spice now has a home! Yay!

I had a great time too! Becca laughing was so funny and I'm glad Jen loved her quilt. It was awesome getting to know you.

Jennifer said...

Good list - how about adding not to sit next to Becca during left, right, center if you want any chance of winning!?

For the most part it sounds like you had a great time at the retreat! I'm heading out to one on Friday...till Monday! 8-)
Sherry...vasectomy! hmmmm....there has to be a bigger story to that one I am sure!
Hope you recuperate quickly! 8-)

I'm with Myra, the comment about Sherry and a vasectomy--there HAS to be a story there! Anxiously awaiting pictures and numbers, glad you had fun!

The best part about reading other retreaters blogs is that I am remembering some super crazy stuff!!
