Get Thee to the Convent.......

When life seems to lack PEACE, it is best to PIECE. There is no better place to quilt than at the convent in Temecula. This weekend was a mixture of creativity, serenity, a sisterhood of the best quilting friends and I couldn't have had a better time!
I worked on three projects, but this one was certainly Merry ( as in Mary Englebreit) and Bright
Thank you Juanice for putting together our retreat and sharing your adorable niece, who in turn shared the most yummy girl scout cookies!
Thanks to Linda for being the best roomie....and for driving too!!!! Always best to have a girlfriend who loves the same shops too. Quilter's Coop is a huge temptation , but we managed to keep our purchases to one overflowing bag!!!!
Tiffany is just our sweetest addition.....and it didn't hurt that she brought us all strawberry shortcake as an appetizer before lunch!!!!
Here is Tiffany's project.....and of course I HAVE to make the exact same quilt. Her ( cutest ever) daughter Kayla designed the applique. In fact Tiffany has FOUR daughters who I am sure will be the best quilters some day.
Our final luncheon at the retreat house. The Sister's decorate our tables with such cuteness, and our meals are delicious and much to plentiful. I can't wait for our next retreat. Thanks everyone for making my weekend the BEST!!!!!
