Another Successful Quilting Retreat!

 This past weekend Liz and Sydney were in town.  Heaven to see them!  The reason they flew in from Minnesota is that we hosted another fabulous Scottie Dog Mystery  Quilting Retreat in Eureka.  For the most part the weather was fabulous.  There were a couple of hours of rain, but mostly the skies were blue, the views from our windows were breathtaking. We could eat out on the decks if we wished.

Here's a view of the Humboldt Bay Aquatic Center taken from the Marina.  The large windows on the left 2nd story are part of our sewing space with two more large windows around the corner facing east.  Lovely views, light and airy rooms.

Here's Rene with one of her blocks.  Look how well her colors go together!

Bev was the first one finished.  Her quilt was fun and cheery. The quilt for this retreat was designed by Liz and called "Swirly Girly."  We have a special ruler for it (makes it REALLY easy).  I'm sure both will be on the Scottie Dog Quilts website soon.

The food was great, the company divine!  Our caterers outdid themselves....I am partial to the Banana Hut Hawaiian Barbecue! I heard many positive comments about our brownie sundae bar on Saturday night.  Lots of great show and tell, laughter and fun.  It's always great to see our friends at retreat.  Alas, Liz and Sydney have flown back to MN and Mr. Scottie Dog and I will be making the drive to Minnesota again next week.  I'll be staying in MN while he comes back to CA to finish up the house remodel and get it on the market.

Next Scottie Dog Quilts Mystery Quilting Retreat will be  August 7-9 held again at the beautiful Aquatic Center on Humboldt Bay in Eureka, CA.  Details here: CLICK Please note that we do need your deposit as soon as possible. You may do it securely right on line at the above link.  Space is limited.  I'll be living in MN by August and Liz and I will be flying out to be with all of you.  Please think about joining us.
