Retreats! Oh they seem like they are oh so much fun when you are packing and planning for them. Imagine! Days away from the phone and TV and your normal everyday life - days to spend with friends and your sewing machine.... Sounds wonderful, doesn't it!
And for the most part, it really is! The creativity that is in the room is explosive - everyone feeds off everyone else and things just happen! I see the prettiest quilts get completed at retreats and ideas for new ones bloom.... I love sitting with my friends and talking about "things" all the things that you talk to your girl friends about. I just love it.
The retreat that we ( the bee I belong to ) go to is about a little more than an hour away from here. It sits out in the country and there are cows out in the pastures by the house. We have a huge room for all of us to sew, three big bedrooms, 3-1/2 baths and a big big full kitchen. We cook, we snack and then we cook somemore! 'Sew a little, cook a little',,, just like the song that is in The Music Man - but the only words I can remember are "cheep cheep cheep, talk a lot" something... got to remember that song or it will drive me nuts!
So, if anyone is reading this,,, how do you like retreats? Tell us your tales....
