A week ago today, I headed up to a cabin just outside Yosemite for a few days of sewing. This was the 22nd year I have been able to attend this retreat. It's a small one--it started out with just three of us, and actually our friend, Ruth, was not even a quilter back in 2000. But Dotty and I talked her into it and we joke that we created a monster because she became a prolific quilter. She now lives in Washington State and was planning to attend again, after missing a couple of years due to Covid. But right before our retreat she took a fall and it looks like she will require knee replacement. Such a bummer. We really missed her.
There were just the four of us, which is a really nice size. I worked only on my pineapple blocks, and even though I only made six, I consider that good progress as they are really time consuming. I now have a total of 8 and plan on making 30.
