Last week was a fun-filled, jam-packed week for me. Our guild has an annual retreat to Zephyr Cove in Lake Tahoe at the Presbyterian Conference Center. It is a nonprofit conference and retreat center. They have rooms which we stayed in, and we had a room large room where we sewed. They also offer 49 cabins to rent. It is about a 2 hour drive from where we live, part of it windy mountain roads.
Our guild has been going here for many years. To keep the costs down, we brought our own breakfasts, and they provided lunch and dinners which were very good. This is the room we worked in. We each got our own table. We had 29 guild members.
On the right is the building we were working in, Straight ahead is one of the cabins they rent out, and the building on the right was where we were sleeping. On the bottom floor of that building was where we ate our meals.
These were some of our views. Our building looked right out over the lake.
So what did I get done you might ask. Several months ago at a guild meeting we were asked to pick out a panel, make it into a quilt to be donated to Community Service. Our deadline was the October meeting. Many of us were working on these at our retreat.
This next one, I took some nine-patches someone put on the free table at guild meeting, and also the top and bottom sashings were on the free table.
Before the retreat I had sewn the side sashings in, and I started to assemble the rows. Unfortunately I don't have enough of this one to do the rows. I miscut a few pieces at home. I was cutting on either side of the red strip, so the middles are left.
This past week was the It's A Dog's Life Challenge, hosted by Carol @Just Let Me Quilt. You could either make something having to do with dogs, or something vintage. I posted about my vintage quilts. You can see the post here. I was having a hard time commenting on other people's posts while I was in Lake Tahoe. It kept telling me I needed to sign into Google. Plus the Wi-Fi was sketchy. I don't know if it was because I was on my Ipad and not on my laptop or what. It was very frustrating.
Saturday night my youngest grandchildren, Klara and John spent the night, as their parents were going to a wedding and staying in a hotel for the night. We asked cousin Keaton to join us at the Spaghetti Factory to celebrate John's BD which was the day before.
Thanks for stopping by!
