This is the basement entrance to the home to me and my Fellow online friends from the Quilters Hollow. This is a Methodist Retreat Center and way out in the woods not far from Lawson , Mo. The upstairs is composed of 6 bedrooms with sleeping for 5-6 each with thier own bathrooms. Very nice and a large living area and small kitchen. You can see from the trees that fall was coming.The dining room was in another building and we took a walk one afternoon down to the lake.It used to be the swimming hole but now they have a swimming pool. It was rough walking down for this old lady with a bad back but was fun and we came back by the road. Course that was dusty and rough with gravel.
We had 23 campers and this is the room which was the whole basement and lots of tables and good lighting. Those of us that flew in had sewing machine made available thanks to the local members. I had my choice of a Featherweight. Thanks Barbara. Was much appreciated.
I spent the few days sewing up this quilt kit that I had bought in Sika, Alaska. It was the first good kit I had bought and then what did I do? Bought another one,Couldn't resist. It was half price and is the Thimbleberries Garden Club.
Then we had a swap of these 6 inch blocks at the retreat. This is how I laid them out on the board. I have since sewed the blocks into rows but not the rows together. Neat aren't they.?
