another block from you which is as good as ever, glad you enjoyed your retreat and the friendships both formed and rekindled.
It was a great retreat. Four days instead of the normal three. Enough time to really unwind. You didn't feel guilty if you stopped to socialize because there was plenty of time to sew. You could stay up as late as you liked or get up as early as you wanted to sew. So much fun to see what everyone else was working on.
It's always fun to see everyone's WIPs at a retreat. I almost find it better than seeing the finishes at the guild Show & Tell. Maybe you have more chance to revel in the details while they are still WIPs.Anyway, great block! I particularly like the sparkling waves fabric. I saw a photo like that the other day that made me think it could be an interesting quilt. I must remember not to throw that magazine out!
