Another great retreat!

The Gingerbread Quilt Retreat is over and it was a great success! This
was our last one at Cascade Locks, so we really had a great time and
lived it up.Had a great group and lots of fun. So many beautiful
quilts. It was a bit sad to say good bye to the staff and to the hotel.
It's such a lovely location on the Columbia River. Next March we will
be in Washougal on the Columbia. It's a lovely new hotel, but it doesn't have the scenic view. It's new and I think our ladies will like it.
I'm still pretty tired...the four day retreat is extra work. I even went to bed at 8 PM last night and slept around the clock.
The weather has turned cold and wet. It's moving toward winter. Here it is November 8th...almost
time for Thanksgiving. I need to take down the Halloween decorations
tomorrow and put up the turkeys.Gobble gobble gobble!
My niece Anna is getting married this coming Saturday so we have another family wedding.
LaVonne called today-a trying day for her. Her daughter was in an accident and totalled her car, but she is OK. LaVonne had to put down one of her sheep this morning. A new adventure for the my shepherdess friend. I don't think I could have done it.
Tasha Tudor family settled their law suit out of court this morning. It
seems they will be able to have some type of museum on the property.
Good news!

I've been off line because my laptop wasn't working so I'm trying to catch up, but I enjoyed not being on line so may stay on vacations from it for a while. I'm glad to hear your retreat went well. Maybe you can get some rest before the holidays start. I'm going to Port Gamble tomorrow to the new quit shop. They have some great fabrics. It was great to meet you and your dd. Linda
