I've never done a retreat before on any level, so it was an experience in many ways. The only thing that was tough was the bed I slept on, but even that wasn't as bad as it could have been. The best thing about it was being able to focus on a project for a long period of time... without cooking, laundry, cleaning or any other thing I usually do on the weekend. Because of the time I had to work, I was able to create a design and complete a quilt top:
The retreat was at this great space out on the Columbia Gorge. It was high up on a hill so the views were spectacular.

The weekend was full of sewing, fun, beauty and laughter - all the best things, right? It was pretty awesome to meet and get to know some new people from our guild too! Thanks PMQG board members for putting this all together... could not have been better!
