The Winners....

Yes, we have multiple winners. I will get to that in a minute. First you must wade through all the photos I took at retreat. Bev, Veronica and I left Tuesday morning around 8:30am. We got to Kinderhook, Illinois around 10am, just in time to scope out a room for three, get our sewing space set up and leave to head over to Hickory Stick Quilt Shop in Hannibal, Mo.

This is the building with our sewing room. Our sleeping rooms, family room and a snack kitchen were in here also. The sewing room was WONDERFUL!! Large windows on three sides with shades to block out the glare of the afternoon sun...

This building houses the huge kitchen with three refrigerators and at least 5 sinks, none of which we had to use...lol Pat, our hostess, did all the meal serving and cleaning up. There are more sleeping room in this main house.

Hey! Some of those gals just couldn't get started sewing fast enough!!

Our patio...some made good use of this for afternoon hand stitching. I forgot to bring mine.. Next year I will take some bottles of wine.


We had a wonderful time. Lots of sewing, two quilt shop stops, good food and talking, talking and more talking, late into the night for some with domino games and wine and loud laughing....

Now the winners.....

Richelle
who correctly guessed 3 projects finished.

AND

Linda who (trying to cover all bases) guessed 3 1/2 to 4 because while I finished 3 projects, I got half way through the fourth.

I have shot off emails to you both to send me your mailing info....I will get your prizes mailed out on Tuesday.
I won't be showing the prizes until they are received. Sorry....

Tune in tomorrow for a complete quilt show. The sewing gals did some spectacular piecing and quilting....

Happy Sewing,
Nancy

Wow, I can't believe I won. And now that I have read your blog, I realize that I must have deleted your email.
Your retreat looked like lots of fun at a beautiful spot.
