Off to The Abbey!

003We are off to The Abbey this weekend in beautiful Lake Geneva WI – 50 quilters, including 28 who have taken advantage of our extra sewing day on Thursday! Fifty happens to be a record attendance for the FallRetreat.  Everyone is always so excited for the get-away and look forward to entire sewing weekend. In addition to our annual trip to The Stitchery in Delavan on Friday, two vendors will be set up in the sewing room, That Quilt Shop, Woodstock IL and Buttons and Bolts from Salem, WI. And if that’s not enough shopping, we have Thirty-One gifts and bags visit on Saturday.

With the retreat weekend approaching, I promise to get back to the quilt blog. It has been way too long since I’ve written – I know . . . so long, considering my last post was at the end of June. Since then, I had a little surgery with a little recuperation time, followed by my trip of a lifetime to Italy.


Here we are at the Vatican!

And we also have a baby on the way (parents-to-be are my son and daughter-in-law from Step To The Altar quilt)!  So since June I’ve been working on baby quilts, of course . . . and fall retreat prep. More on the baby and the quilts upon his arrival but for now, it will be Fall Retreat 24/7. Next post will be lots of pics from the event!photo

  1. Love the photos Sue. Have a great quilting weekend!!

    We are on the road to white sands national monument with the dogs for hiking. (A much tamer adventure than last week) Since Casey loves digging in the fine gravel in our yard, We may not get too far on the dunes 😉
    Home right before Thanksgiving…coffee time 😀

    Take care Joy
