Summer retreat

At the beginning of this month, August, there was the annual Roaring River retreat. It's held at the Roaring River Park near Cassville, Missouri in the lodge that is located there at the park. A beautiful, wonderful place that I love going to. It's been going on for seven years which I have been able to attend the last three.
It's such a great group of ladies and we have so much fun for four days. 

I took this year one project and that was it I spy quilt. 

I had over 250 circle to complete so I could put the tops together. So that was my task was to fussy cut these circles. And preparing them for the squares. I wish I could say after four days I got all 250  circles completed but I did not. 

Did make a good amount of progress so when I got home that week I started finishing them.
Enough of mine for now I want to also show pictures of what was going on around me by the other ladies so enjoy

If you see one you really like or have a question just put it down in the comments and I'll get back to you with more information. This post is just going to be basically pictures with very little words or explanations but I'm more than willing to share and elaborate more if you wish.
