Cobble Court Quilters (CCQ) Retreat in CT - Day 1

Twenty one of us came together for a fabulous weekend at Camp Washington, near Litchfield CT.  Three new friends joined us this year.  It did not take long for the new to wear off. 

The retreat weekend started for me on Thursday when I flew into Hartford and met Pam and later Sue.  We met up with Patrice and Joe for a wonderful meal at The Cheesecake Factory. 

After the meal we went to "Quilting by the Yard" and decreased their fabric inventory somewhat.

Friday morning found us on the way to Litchfield, where we stopped for lunch at the West End Grill.  The food was excellent, as it had been in the past.  We walked around the square, visited a few stores then made our way to Camp Washington.

By four o'clock we had unpacked our sewing stuff, dragged our suitcases upstairs and joined others in the great room to begin the fun weekend.

We ate dinner around 5 or 6, then sometime later we had our annual Show and Tell.  Some pictures of this even are shown below.  Unfortunately, my camera ran out of power and I did not get pictures of all of the beautiful creations of this group.


Sorry about how the pictures are shown; they seem to have a mind of their own.

  1. Isn't retreating with friends the best!!!! Glad to see I'm not the only one to fly across the country to meet up with quilty friends ;-)

  2. Glad you had a great time. I love to hear about your travels. Don't you hate it when your camera dies? It is very frustrating to me. Can't wait til we are headed to Houston!
