More pix from the retreat....

Just wanted to share a few more.

I am sure many of you are aware of how much fun it is to go on retreat or just plain ole getting together with friends and doing the things you love. Here are just a handful of us doing what we love....quilting and talking.

Also, wanted you to see the pile of NICU quilts that the gal from the local hospital in St. Louis was picking up from us. There were around 150, but the sad thing was that she said that the majority of them will be handed out in less than two weeks. That's a lot of preemies and sick babies. The majority of these measured out to be 22" square. In her hands are the baby hats that I had knitted, too.

The babies weren't the only ones getting quilts that week. My roommate, Sandy, made me a quilt for being her friend and roomie. Now, you have to know one thing about me.....I love animal print....which is so out of character for me..... ;D or so people think. LOL. Anyways, isn't it adorable?!!!

Now to further that wild side of me (and all the other gals at the retreat)...our gal Rilla got us all tattoos to wear. I still have mine on my leg. Must say ...the color ran out of my DH's face when I showed him and then he asked if it was permanent. LOL. He must think we are all a little crazy, but we sure have fun.

As for being a little crazy, these three gals really decked themselves out for the "monkey" pant fashion show/contest. They had talking slippers on to match the pants that they made, crowns, feathers, stickers, and the monkey pant gal even had a tail. Beckles, Debbie,and Joann...daughters/sisters and mom. (Left to right were monkey pants, duck pants and frog pants) They were our entertainment for the week....always laughing and making everyone else laugh.

If you are interested in seeing more of the retreat pictures, on the right side of my page are two blogs that I follow and these gals were at the retreat and really have great pictures to show off, actually tons of pictures. The one is and the other one is . Please check them out. I think you will enjoy them.

I said I wouldn't......

I meant it when I said it. But I failed and ended up doing it. I picked up the knitting needles instead of getting back to my pile o...
