Arriving at Atwood Lake
A short one hour drive from Kent is the lovely Atwood Lake and Resort where I spent the weekend at a fabulous quilt retreat put on by our local quilt shop in Stow, Sew Deja vu. Thank you, ladies from the vu, for picking out such a lovely place to sew, eat, sew, relax and sew some more. My little red car found the way with a little help from our GPS. Barbie, my friend since forever, was right behind me.
This is a rather long post with lots of pictures; if you are new to reading blogs, click on any picture to enlarge the photo. Enjoy!
Room with the vu
We had the ballroom with the best view and we were with the vu. How great is that!
Morning of the first day
By afternoon, the room is full of sewing machines and colourful fabric. Let the fun begin!

Our retreat would not have been complete without the added humour and blessings from Sister Charlotte. Her quilt became a coat of many colours and we all requested the pattern!
I am so thankful to Sew Deja vu for the time and energy spent to make this retreat the very best! Thank you for giving us the opportunity to meet new friends while we expand our art of quilting.
