Camp Asbury consists of 3 main buildings. At the top of the hill is the building that we sleep and sew in - great for late night sewing sessions where we can change in to our jammies at any hour. At the bottom of the hill is the dining hall with a work room down stairs and another building with bedrooms. We walk or drive to the dining hall for 3 squares a day and while the hill was a little icy this time, it was also gorgeous and a good way to work off those cookies!
|Somehow this snowy version showed up in Picasa - wish I knew how to do this on purpose.|
Sometimes it just doesn't pay to stay up late sewing. A lot of the girls were making disappearing pinwheel blocks and some where having more trouble than others!
Even worse, when you frog out the wrong seam, it's time for bed...
Luckily the block fairy came after everyone went to bed and fixed this poor block before sunrise. Surprise!!
Technology was a given all weekend: ipads were used to take pictures, look up patterns online or give lessons on The Evil Website. Phones were used to catch up with family or check email.
And on Sunday mornings we have show & tell. There are 2 sewing rooms in our building so we take turns going to each other's room to see how much has been accomplished. As you can see there is a lot of sewing space for each person along with separate ironing and cutting stations. There are leather sofas to relax or do some handwork and if you are a bit chilly go visit the other room which has a gas fireplace! The kitchenettes are stocked with coffee, tea and snacks!
I hope you enjoyed this little slice of retreat and if you are local, please consider joining us in October. It would be fun to meet some of my readers!
