Quilt Retreat Weekend at Cape Cod, MA.

I traveled to Cape Cod, MA from Wisconsin to attended a Quilt Retreat for the weekend....The name of the Retreat is called "Joy of Quilting".... We stayed at Cape Point Motel..... I met up with lots of my friends and we had a wonderful time... I also met a lot of nice ladies from CT.... One of the ladies I use to work with and we caught up on loss times... The last time I saw Jeannie was about 12 to 15 years ago... :)
This is Lorraine and Sunny puts this retreat together every year.... Sunny is her best friend worked with heard to put  this weekend together... Her picture is below.... :)
This is some of the ladies quilting and working very hard to get their projects finished... :)
Janice is a friend of Luanne and she came to give massages to anyone who wanted it... This is my friend Lyn getting her massage.... We all felt wonderful after the massage... Janice worked steady for about 4 or 5 hours....  Thanks Janice for coming and offering the massages to all of us... :)

In the pictures above are some of the finish projects that we all had worked on... There was a clothesline hung at the both ends of the room and we hung our finished projects on.... What a wonderful idea and we were able to see everyone finished projects....  I did the bear quilt.....:)
Since it was Halloween on Sunday.... I brought the two costumes with me and my friend (Lynn) and I wore them on Saturday night and handed out candy to all the ladies... I was Pooh and Lyn was Tiger.... We did not tell anyone we were going to do this and you should of seen everyone faces when we came into the room....We had so much fun and lots of laughs .... Everyone love the costumes.... :)
