Today is September 28 (Thursday) and we're all ready to head out to Camp Blanding for the weekend! We have almost 100 gals that will be with us quilting, rug hooking, etc. for a relaxing, FUN time!!
I so enjoy these weekends...they are a bunch of work.... but it's so great to be with a room full of chatty, laughing, happy women. All of a sudden you'll hear a group of gals all sitting together burst out with laughter... it just makes my heart feel so good!
Then... once this retreat is over... we will be home for a few days and then 25 of us will be heading to Hamilton, Missouri!!!! Oh Yes... we are spending a week at Missouri Star Quilt Company at their retreat house! I simply can't wait..... you know I have a passion for family run businesses and this is one of the great ones! Jenny (Doan) and her family came from almost loosing everything to being a great success for her business and the small town of Hamilton. If you've never seen the story of how she began or watched the videos on her website... please do so. It will simply do your heart good!! We'll try to post pictures on the Olde Green Cupboard Facebook page!!
As you can see.... not a minute goes by where we are not crazy busy....but that's what makes it so much fun!
Oh... yes... then the weekend after Thanksgiving we will be in Kitty Hawk, NC on the Outer Banks... for out "Spirit of Christmas" Retreat! We have a FULL HOUSE with this group of gals too and the projects the instructors are making are WONDERFUL! We have ornaments, wall hangings, lots of wool projects, snowmen, bears, wool hooked ornaments, pins.... 20 projects in all! I'll post them in another blog.. have to tease you a bit with a "sneak peak". Our instructors are from all over the United States!
