A number of ladies travel some distance, so the Early Birds arrived last night.

There was a late evening snack of veggies & dip, cheese & crackers and fresh carrot cake with ice cream. We had a wonderful time catching up with friends we haven’t seen in a year and meeting new-to-us Retreaters!

We even got a visit from a Tiny Quilter Helper!  His job is to help us measure.  (One of 12 new Vizsla puppies a week and a half old – isn’t he sooooo cute! Don’t you want one!)
