Here are just a few of the goodies we received at the Quilt Taffy retreat in McCall, ID.
Des - "Chef".
Wrapped in this wax paper are the most delicious German Chocolate brownies - ever!
And they're loaded with nuts!!! (thanks, Des)
Everywhere you looked there were pink & white treats.
The first night we exchanged "my favorite things" gifts.
I got this awesome tattoo!
And these other gifts....a Christmas CD, a measuring cup filled with chocolate, an insulated drinking glass with a Diet Coke tucked inside and a dish cloth.
The dish cloth had this amazing hazelnut chocolate bar inside.
(hazelnut & chocolate - one of my most favorite combinations....EVER.)
I also received this handy little tote, to tote all of my goodies in!
Every afternoon Des treated us to homemade snacks.
Her husband, "hello" Dave, made us these giant sugar cookies - ahhhh....cookies & milk in the afternoon.
When we arrived we had this pile of wonderful-ness waiting on our beds.
I LOVE the plastic quilt block containers - I could easily have dozens of these in my home....they're perfect for storing your ongoing projects.
Don't you just love the nighttime shades made out of MINKY?
I've already started using my fabric covered notebook and trim.
We all received a chair massage -
oh. my. goodness. gracious!
I could have fallen asleep right there. - thank you, Eva.
We played and played.....we even played a lotto game with fabulous prizes.
I won a package of pink Skittles from my ticket!
Here I am peeking over my scrappy trip with my sister, Leela.
Ahhh - a finish!
Des had a book review on this sweet little book, "Stargirl", by Jerry Spinelli.
I read it at the retreat and loved every word of it.
It's an easy read which is packed with life lessons.
I highly recommend it!
I'll be dropping quarters on the sidewalk for the rest of my life.
So many great friendships were formed.
Here's the first group:
and here's our second group:
Our parting goodie was a giant box of pink Whoppers with a personal note attached - safe travels.
Thank you, again, Des & Corrie, for a fantastic retreat.
You're the BEST!
