St. Louis here we come


I think most of you who are in the crazy quilting circle know that the Omaha retreat will not be happening this year. Instead Mary Anne Griffin who lives on the IL side of the Mississippi across from St. Louis decided to try and get a few of us together for the weekend. Well 15 of us are planning on attending starting tomorrow and leaving either Sun. or Mon. am. She has a very nice hotel lined up for us and they are supplying us with a conference room that we can use to just sit around, cha, sew, whatever we want to do. It should be fun and more relaxing then planned lessons and running day and night. Getting too old for that. Harv is going with me and will entertain himself around St.Louis. He has his fishing rod packed and ready to go. He always enjoys just roaming around to see what he can. I will be spending the evenings with him so should be the best of both worlds.

Will take lots of pics and post them when I get back.

Have a great time (and hope Harv catches some decent fish!).

Freda, this is gorgeous! I love the place piece below as well - the technique sounds pretty interesting. I love crazy quilting and always have at least one piece on the go. I think mine tend to be pretty plain though...

Sounds like the best kind of "retreat", like the one I have planned for next May in New Buffalo MI. (Pink House Retreat)Please let me know how you enjoyed it. I think the mingling between CQer's are as important as packed classes. Have fun!
Hugs,Pat
