Hello everyone!!

I hope that this email finds you well. I had a very busy fall and before winter starts, I hosted my Quilting retreat at the beautiful Inspired Getaways - A Crafter's Haven in Arnprior Ontario.This year, the retreat turned out to be extra special because while we were there, my son Vincent proposed to his wonderful girlfriend Jane.  And she said yes!!! The "quilting aunts" were ecstatic!! Of course, this was cause for celebration!!!

I was so pleased with this announcement and to share it with my quilting friend made it extra special!  I must admit that I was happy that I was working on a very simple project because at times, it was hard for me to concentrate!!!
What a weekend high in emotions.  If you have ever been to a quilting retreat, you know how fun they are. We learn ,we share, we laugh, we shop and of course we quilt!!!.  Here are some highlights in pictures:

1) Learning a new technique: Slab quilting by Cheryl Arkison. We learned by making a mug rug.
2) Shopping at Sew Inspired
3) Poker Night.  It is incredible how happy fat quarters make us feel!! Congrats Claire Marshall!
4)  A lot of quilting!
5) And gifts!!!! This time, Brenda Miller from Among Brenda's Quilts and Bags gave each participant a kit to make one of her latest creation: Homeward Bound Bag. What a treat!!! And yes, there will be a class for those interested to join!
Is attending to a quilting retreat on your bucket list? Want to join me next time? I will be hosting 3 quilting retreats at Inspired Getaways this winter and next Spring.  This time,  I will be teaching a class.  Wouldn't this be a wonderful gift under the Christmas tree?  Have a look at the upcoming retreats:

Bonjour à  tous et à toutes!!

L'hiver est à nos portes et comme à chaque année, j'ai organisé une retraite de quilting à Inspired Getaways à Arnprior.  Cette année, la retraite a été particulièrement spéciale car pendant que j'y étais, j'ai appris que mon fils Vincent a demandé la belle Jane en mariage!! Que d'émotions!!! Les `ma tantes` quilteuses en ont profité pour lever un verre à la santé du nouveau couple.  Quel bonheur pour moi que de partager ce moment spécial de ma vie avec mes compagnes de quilting!!

Notre fin de semaine fut bien remplie et comme à chaque année , nous étions bien tristes qu'elle se termine.  Vous verrez ci-haut en photos les points saillants de notre retraite.  Comme toujours, il y a les fous rires, les apprentissages, l'entraide, la bonne bouffe, du quilting et des cadeaux.  Du pur bonheur!!!
