Your hostesses are hard at work planning for the retreat.

You are a Retreat Tease, that's what you are!  More, give us more.

I"ve been trying to remember where Granbury was. Texas, near Ft. Worth and where my long time work friend lived. The things I forget! that list keeps getting bigger!

Do you notice that I'm the only one who isn't smiling at looking straight at the camera?  I was so focused on taking the photo that I forgot to look up.  LOL

What I did notice (obviously) that y'all did a Zoom meeting!  I remember in times past you'd have a mini retreat and discuss the February retreat but that was when everyone was in the Phoenix area.  Zoom makes meetings with people in distant places so convenient.

Yes it does!  We would’ve been sunk without it this year. We had people traveling all over lol. 

well hello there!  Nice to see everyone.  Though I don't recognize the lady on the lower left.. Is it someone new since I last attended (2019)  or someone who has grown their hair out and my memory is swiss cheese?

That's Carrie.  She's an amazing quilter who does a lot of quilts for the AZ ladies.  I think this year's retreat was her first year to be a hostess, and she did great.  I think she did come to one retreat where you came too, but she came late and didn't stay long.  The reason I remember that is that she was sitting next to me.  I think we were across the room from you.  She was working on a complicated applique project with sea turtles, using a light box.  


I do remember meeting Carrie, but she had short hair then I think.  I've heard about her for years tho.
