The weekend after New Year’s our group headed out to a wonderful camp in eastern Oklahoma for a weekend of quilting fun. This was the first time we have gone away together and it was an experience I hope we repeat every year. We finally broke through the wall of being able to honestly critique each others’ work and really grow as a team. I want this to continue.
