Retreat !






My guild just had its annual retreat, and for the first time I was able to go- color me a happy girl! We met at the FFA camp in Covington. What a nice place that is, I'd love to go back again, soon. There were ten of us for two and a half days of sewing and eating. We sewed from breakfast to bed time in a room below the dining room. That was so convenient, only having to go up the stairs, have our meal ready for us, and return downstairs for more sewing. Here are some photos of the facility, which was well off the beaten track and manned by some of the nicest folks you could ever want to deal with. Our cottage, the dining hall, different angles of our sewing space and an early morning shot of the mist rising from the lake behind our cottage.

I couldn't think of a better name for your blog. You are very creative with the English language. I give up, though, how am I supposed to know what FFA means?

What a lovely spot for a retreat - it would have been hard for me to stay inside all day and not get out of doors just a little to enjoy the beauty there! Are those 2 white tables the folding kind? I just looked at some that looked like that at Walmart today and wondered how sturdy that are. A great idea to put them on risers to make them a bit higher.
