FNQer's go to camp!

Pines & Needles Quilt Retreat

Fall arrived just abit early for me this year. I spent 2 days and 2 nights up near Christopher Creek at Pines and Needles.
Click on this link to see information and lots of pictures of this neat place:
The top picture shows the house where there are 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, living room, and kitchen. The second picture is of the workroom. It was so beautiful up there and about 20-30 degrees cooler than here in Phoenix.

Here we all are in the dining room just after finishing up a fine meal.

One of the real pleasures of this retreat is that Kim, (the owner of this fine establishment) does all the cooking and serves us breakfast, lunch and dinner family style. Kim is a great cook!

Besides Eating, drinking, napping and hiking we all get a whole lot of quilting projects done!

Mary's "YIKES" quilt top

Judy finished up her Sundowners BOM.

Kathy sewed the rick rack on the quilt that is going to go in her downstairs bedroom and made this baby quilt.

Linda created borders around a neat panel to create this cool quilt that she is giving to her mother-in-law and made a baby quilt top.

Joanne finished up the beading on this extremely creative wall hanging. You should see it in person........it is fabulous!

You can't really see her, but this is Dolly working on a little purse. I think she made at least 6 of them in various sizes this weekend, plus a tablerunner and I don't know what else!

I think that Kerry drank rum and coke all weekend........as I have no pictures of her projects........naw.........just kidding.......she worked on some very tedious looking blocks for a wall hanging that when finished is going to be beautiful and at least one purse.

Good to get away.................GREAT to be home! Thanks for the fine weekend Kim!
