TTT goes on retreat

The Tuesday Thimbles and Threads gals had a winter retreat at St. Christophers Camp and Conference Center on Seabrook Island from Sunday to Thursday of this past week.  We stayed in Jamie’s Lodge at the center – had the entire upper floor plus the meeting room for our sewing.  Our own covered deck and the view from our sewing room was of the ocean/beach.  The header of my blog is the sunset from Tuesday evening.  It was wonderful to get away and just sew sew sew with someone else fixing all the food.  Many of us took daily walks on the beach even though the temperatures were frosty and the wind was ferocious at times.  We brought healthy (for the most part) snacks and best of all…………..we had a grand and glorious time together.  Laughter abounded.  Side-splitting, pants wetting, wonderful laughter about the silliest little things.  The husbands did not understand any of it when we tried to tell them about it upon arriving home.  But we know that we added at least ten years to our lives from all the laughing.

Here are some pictures of projects from the retreat.  Four of us worked on the Cracked Pots pattern and those pictures will be in the next posting.
