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:
