Isn't this tree glorious! It is a maple, sitting right outside one of the quilt shops we visited during the Odenville Retreat. Twice a year, some of the ladies off of the HGTV Message Board "Quilting and Needlework" meet near Birmingham Alabama for a little mini-retreat. Annually, all of the member try to meet somewhere nationally..but smaller portions of the membership will also get together locally. Ours is not really "much" locally..since we have folks that travel down from as far as Maine to join in...because we have so much fun!
This is the view from my corner seat next to the windows...far right back.
Isn't this a lovely group of ladies to be stitching with! I think so!
