MORE RETREATING FUN

Our Halloween Weekend Retreat is over. We are back to the grind stone, so to speak. Working, whether doing laundry, housework, household chores, or jobs, it is definately not the fun time we had at our yearly Quilty gathering. We all got lots done. Some finished Red, White, and Blue Blocks for our swap, some attached borders, and some wrapped up other swap obligations. We also learned some blogging skills from each other. We all assume that we all know what the others know until we get to gether and begin to talk and then we start saying, "WHAT---HOW DO YOU DO THAT?" Also we made a pact to keep up with our group blog better. Each will be responsible for it in a designated month. I am the first one for November so here is my first attempt.
The retreat food was great as, usual. Several recipes were requested to be posted. I will do that as they come in. Here are the first ones:

At This Time of Year

Before you begin the movie, please turn off the sidebar player. Thank you!
Happy Holidays everyone! The Wackies have so much to be thankful for......with all our families and friends and all of our blogging buddies. This year has flown by and was filled with great activities, projects, swaps, purchases, some triumphs and a few losses.  I wanted to take a moment to remember our girlfriend, Jerri who passed away nine months ago.  There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about her or laugh at something she said or did.  Jerri was such a large part of my life.  She was the sister I never had, the best friend and traveling buddy and she gave great advice, too.  Jerri was the life of the party and I'm so blessed to have known her. Above is a little movie I made to share with our group a little after Jerri passed away.  It's a snippet of her antics and love of living. I'm sharing it with you in the hopes that it will lift your spirits, make you laugh or just spread a…
