What a wonderful 4 days I had with some of our fellow bloggers and some non-bloggers. If you can, you need to check out some of the other bloggers that were there, Dawn and Laura (http://www.pineridgequilter.blogspot.com/) . I am only listing these two right now, because I know they have posted pictures of our winter retreat.
I did not get as much accomplished as I would have liked to because I came down with a bad cold on the first day there. Riding in airplanes does it to me every time.

Carol (http://www.cornfieldquilter-carol.blogspot.com/) met us at Miss Mary's on Saturday during a very cold morning to bring me my OTR quilt. What a beautiful job she did on the quilting.

I added additional borders on both sides in order to get it to King Size. This one is going to daughter & husband in Kerrville, TX. She just loves scrappy quilts and I know this one will please her and get a lot of use.

I also finished all my blocks for Double Delight but with 12 of us in that little house with sewing machines going, there was not enough room to lay them all out. So I packed them away to finish here at home. I had started some Pineapple blocks at Camp in IN last Sept., so I went back to work on those for the remainder of my stay at Miss Mary's.

DD, Tammy, sent me this Edible Bouquet. It was almost too pretty to eat. However, DH and I have made short work of it this weekend.

We escaped yesterday and went to Shreveport, LA to the casino for a day of fun and to celebrate my B'day. We had a great time and I can really tell I'm getting older because we were back home by 9:30 last night and I was in bed by 10:30.
