|Facing east toward Mt. Rainier.|
The weather and retreat center were absolutely gorgeous! One morning after breakfast we went for a walk and stumbled onto a sudden view of Mt. Rainier (above) that took our breath away. The shadows in that photo excited me so much that I made the Twisted Nuts pose for another shadow photo, below, after dinner on the last evening. The lowering sun stretched our shadows way out over the center blocks that we had just exchanged as the start of a Round Robin project.

|This is where we slept -- and got massages on the deck.|
|This is where we ate. That smoke is from barbecue!|
|This is where we sewed.|
|The view from my sewing table was light and peaceful.|
I did a couple of fruity projects: reversible carrot-apple placemats and a lemon table runner with prairie point edges. It's been years since I've used prairie points.
It's getting late, so I'll end here and include more photos of some of the other projects later.
Have a colorful day
