I’m often asked if I ever get tired of sewing and the answer is a resounding NO! When I mentioned to a male friend that I was going on a quilt retreat, he said sarcastically, “Oh, that sounds like fun.” I told him that it was a lot more fun than he envisioned. Besides being able to sew in pajamas if we want to, we have a whole day of sewing with no interruptions other than to eat or refill our drinks which start to be adult beverages around five o’clock or a little earlier. We have a great time sharing ideas, showing off our work and getting advice on block placement and borders. And we talk about families, current events and even politics and religion until someone changes the subject. Needless to say, there is a lot of laughter when five women with common interests get together. I’m looking forward to my next retreat at Quilter’s Cabin in Tomball. It’s a great place to retreat and stay in a log home in a wooded area where we often see deer when we look up from our sewing machines. Retreat refreshes me and I’m always ready to work on T-shirt quilts when I get back to my studio.
