retreat recap: part 1

retreat
Earlier this week, I attended a sewing retreat with the Las Vegas Modern Quilt Guild. I didn't really know what to expect as this was my first quilt retreat, but it was a blast! There was sewing and socializing and quilt shop visiting. There was camp fire building, marshmallow roasting and recipe swapping.

We stayed at Tumbling Rock Ranch in Seligman, Arizona. It was a nice change from the Nevada desert. There were mountains and greenery, trees and flowers. We even had a few rain showers while we were there - and once the rain broke, even a rainbow! I saw my first tarantula and despite having no rotary cutter or sewing machine needle accidents at the retreat, I still ended up in the ER! (I brushed against a cactus while unloading another retreater's things. Um, it sucked. I'm also writing this still sort of loopy from Benadryl, so I'll edit as needed when it wears off. Hopefully I'm not rambling too much, although I am noticing that this is fourth sentence within a parentheses, so I'll stop now...) 

I worked on several projects making a lot of progress on each, but finishing none. I'll be posting more about those projects as well as some of my secret quilter items (both received and gifted) once I get them unpacked and photographed.

Stay tuned - more to come once these drugs wear off!
