Retreat Plans are coming along nicely

OK, the plans for my Idaho retreat are coming along nicely and the first retreat in May (1,2,3) will be $575. This will include most meals and your hotel room. I have hired someone to cook for us and someone to bake for us also. Both are skilled at this and will make it even more fun.
I have some fun surprises and we hope to end the retreat by going into Coeur d'Alene and having a late lunch or early dinner at the Coeur d'Alene hotel which is fabulous and fun.
Coeur d'Alene has a great quilt shop as well as shopping and restaurants. You might want to come in early to make use of being in a new and beautiful place. The theme of the retreat in May will be all things "hoochy" and we will hand out patterns for dogs, cats, houses, cars and other things and we will also be bringing more samples of regular hoochy blocks, birds, bird houses and many flowers. This is sure to produce great, award winning quilts and just quilts that you love yourself and after all, isn't that more important? It is to ME.
I will announce the price and plans for the August retreat soon also. I left my book in my husband's car. :0) I don't trust my memory any longer. I already have sign up's and think this first retreat will fill fast.
We will have brochures done soon, when I can get them printed and don't have something important like Asilomar (this weekend).
Hope these last few days of summer are bringing you many blessings. I am seeing so many things I am thankful for. What beauty, vegetables, fruits, kids laughter and other things this time of year brings. Thanks for reading my blog. YOU are a blessing to me.

Love the new photo of you at the top of your blog....you look great!! Wish I was heading to Asilomar with you to take your classes. Will you offer a "Cats I have known" themed class in the future? We no longer have pets, but had many wonderful cats as part of our family for 38 years.
