Sewing Retreat, Pie Plate Pattern Style!

Way back in August, Terry and I ran away for a few days to attend the High Mountain Pie Plate Pattern Retreat.  Here are a few pictures of our fun.  We worked on the mystery quilt they were offering.  Here are a couple of my blocks.  Lots and lots of half square triangles in this quilt!
Smile for the camera Terry.  Watcha working on? 
 Of course chocolate and Diet Coke is a must.  In Terry's case, a Dr. Pepper.
This is where we spent our weekend, high in the mountains of Fairview Canyon.
Bonnie and Sarah, what a helper she is.  And one heck of a sewer for just 10 years of age.  She is awesome and really fun.
The second night we had a relay race, kind of like a Jelly Roll 1600 only we made ours from two layer cakes.  What a clever idea, Bonnie really comes up with some new things for us to participate in.
Ready, set, sew.  This is the fabric I chose for the race.  A really fun idea, just about finished with mine and I can't wait to share it with you. 
Lazy heads in jammies!

 Hey, I recognize this pattern.  It was a show and tell from one of the other participants.  It's one of Terry's Long and Lean patterns.  Just in time for Halloween.  And the last of my mystery blocks sewn.  What a fun weekend we had sewing and laughing and eating good meals.  Look forward to next year's already.
