Retreat Workshop

I had the most wonderful time with my most wonderful friends. We had a retreat workshop that will be coming up the first weekend in April. We worked hard yesterday and I just know this will be a really good retreat for our ladies in the guild. It is always fun being friends whether I am quilting or not. I hope to have pictures after the retreat so I can show them here, but for now it is all hush, hush.

My first retreat of the season will be this next weekend with the same friends. We will have six at this retreat. I am looking forward to it. I am curious as to what the ladies did with the challenge fabric I handed out at our last retreat. It's always fun to see what they come up with.

Then the first weekend in April is our Guild retreat. It will be fun to see the mystery quilts sewn together with the different fabrics. I hope they like the surprises the retreat committee came up with.

Then it's off to Paducah with friends. My first trip there. It will be exciting to see what my friend Vickie has planned for us. It sounds like so much fun.

Until next be happy and have fun quilting.

Shelter Dogs Of Oklahoma

My son Clyle and his wife Crystal run Shelter Dogs Of Oklahoma, a nonprofit organization, where they help find homes for dogs that come from the pound. These are rescue dogs and the site is on my sidebar. I have one of the dogs I adopted, a boxer named Joy. She is 11 months old now. I have posted her on this blog a few times. Last week Clyle asked me to make a dog coat with "Adopt Me" on it. I put their logo on it and their web site. I usually work on my quilts and never thought I would be making a quilted dog coat, but here it is.
