Quilt With Us

I just came back from a fabulous 3-day retreat at the Hankerd Inn Resort in Pleasant Lake, Michigan and had a marvelous time. It was 3-days being pampered, catered, fed, and a murder mystery quilt. My girl friend was murdered, her picture is below as well as one or two of the Inn. Had fantastic rainbows, cloud formations and just a beautiful surrounding country side. The Hankerd Inn consists of the Inn, Guest House, Barn and Studio/Shop. The Barn houses on the sewing area on the ground floor, then the 2nd level has lounge area, kitchen, 4 bedrooms and upper area has 4 bedrooms all with their own bathrooms, some not only have showers in a separate room but deep soaking tubs/whirlpool baths. The Guest House has a lower sitting area, bedroom and bath (that's where I was), main floor has bedroom, lounge area with fireplace and kitchen and the upper level has 1 bedroom. The Inn has 2 kitchens, 2 large dining areas, sitting areas with fireplaces, 2 bedrooms on main floor and the upper level has 6 bedrooms. Each room had its own theme. It was just marvelous. I got all of my quilt top together minus the borders. Will get that done later this week. Do need to get some homework done on this writing course I'm doing as assignment is due by end of month. LOL.

Hope that all had a marvelous weekend. Enjoy the pictures.

I had SOOOO much fun at this retreat, that I have now signed up for a 3-day retreat (and I took the optional 4th day) at this same place -- The Hankerd Inn in Lake Pleasant, Michigan -- that will take place in December of this year! Plus I will be doing another with the group I was with this year there again next fall. Of course the fall 2013 retreat might get canceled if we change our talk of moving to Panama to actually doing it.

She was killed by a rotary cutter that slit her throat.

Looks like fun! (I'm always on the lookout for a new way to kill someone--in my books only) Professional curiosity makes me ask--what was the cause of death??

No butler involved in this murder. It was a half sister that she did not know she had. We had a lot of fun with it. After she was murdered we received clues for objects we had to hunt for and find (I found 2) and then there were 5 suspects who were grilled by the police inspector (I was one and supposedly did a mercy killing). The food was fantastic and we could sew all night if we wished.

I still have the borders to put on the top and once I have it all together, I'll take a picture of it and post it.

If you ever get a chance to do a retreat or are in Michigan and wish to go to the Hankerd Inn with a group, contact them and I can guarantee you that you won't be sorry.
