A group of Firehouse Quilts members along with their friends and family recently attended a retreat at the YMCA of the Rockies in Estes Park. Despite some unforeseen problems it was a wonderful weekend close to the beauty of Rocky Mountain National Park. It’s always fun to spend time sewing, quilting, visiting, snacking, and sharing the company of one another. When the ceiling filled with water and threatened to collapse, everyone pitched in and moved the tables to a new location. That didn’t keep the ladies from sticking with their projects and creating some gorgeous items. In the evenings we were all thrilled to witness the bull elk bugling on the lawn as the cows and babies settled in to sleep. Fall in Estes Park is truly a remarkable treat.
