|The lake adjacent to our retreat center!|
This past weekend was the Chicago Modern Quilt Guild's fall retreat. I can't begin to explain how much fun it was! I really feel encouraged and uplifted by this group of ladies.
I feel like I've really gotten to know some of the group a lot better this weekend. It's not just about quilting, it's about community and friendships. I feel like this weekend we went a bit deeper - late night conversations - supporting eachother - laughing and having fun. I've been going to CMQG meetings for a while now and it's like our friendships are really growing. It's crazy to think that it was only a couple years ago that I joined up with this guild. I'm glad I did.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that I really appreciate all the support I get from this group of fabulous ladies. It's hard moving to a city and not having my old friends here, and it's even harder to find people who share interests and are accepting enough to let new people in.
Yes, I'm still on a "retreat high" - and I hope it lasts a while! Thanks for making it a fun and productive weekend ladies!!
