Half Moon Lake Retreat

What can three sisters with three sewing machines create in one week in a semi-isolated, two-room cabin?

Priceless memories of massive millers (moth) attacks and their ultimate slaughter (believe me it was memorable), reconnecting and remembering childhood memories, and . . .

three unique Sunbonnet Sue quilt tops made from our mother's hand-appliqued, Sunbonnet Sue blocks.

I recommend going on a crafting retreat with your sister, your daughter, or your friend.

  8. Tremendous work of sisters. The fact that you did it together is so sweet. Sisters have such a power when they work together! I have witnessed some very devoted and loving sisters in the intensive care environment. Their love is like a dance between them.
