The year is off and running and I feel I am already playing catch up!
Whilst preparing for my upcoming BOM 2016 launch and my participation in BLOCK STOCK 2016, I took a break and went for a trip:)
Because that is what you do........

This is Rosemary's Quilt Shop in Highland, Illinois.  I used to live about 10 miles from here and her shop is just lovely!  She has rooms she will rent out to quilters so you can eat and quilt here for days...oh, and sleep if you need to :)
The house is full of beautiful antiques and walking through at night petting the fabric feels decadent.
There was a group of us that did it just before I was transferring to NC in 2007 and I really missed it.  I was able to fly out once again in 2011.
HERE is the post from 2011....

We had SEW much fun quilting and eating:)  There is a fantastic Chinese restaurant a couple of blocks away and I do miss it!
Looks like my friend Suzn Quilts was working on Dresdens even then!
The crew is a bit smaller now but just as much fun was had by all.
I was able to fly out a few days early and spend time junking and antiquing with my sweet friend.  Those treasures are for another post! 
Time spent with friends is so precious and rejuvenating so think about booking a retreat today!
