Home from my retreat

Well it was 5 glorious days of stitching, laughing, learning and sharing. Once a year I put all my cares in a basket and indulge in the joy of being with like mined stitchers and crafters. These ladies are the best they bring projects to share and all of them love stitching as much as I do. Our organizer is a fantastic gal that works very hard to make our time at the Retreat Center the best time. This year we had 35 ladies that came together to share and enjoy.

The room is so open and bright just off to the right of this room is the dining room. The staff go out of their way to make the best dinners everyday. They make meals for all members even if that means a one off plate for those with allergies or other specialty vegetarian. Again large open space with a beautiful view and the patio is lovely.

Our rooms are just the basics, it is meant as retreat so no TV or other amenities. But this is not a problem as we all spend our days in the big room stitching or out walking the grounds or out shopping at the local fabric and stitching shops. There is also a Jo-ann's, Michael's and Hobby Lobby. These are all within 30 minutes of our location.  
This year one of the attendees gave a class on making what we all dubbed pinch pockets. They are small 3-sided pockets that when you pinch the corners open up so you can place a small item inside. 

 And of course we all brought finished items to share. Some bring a few of our yearly finishes and set them out for all to admire. 

And I was able to find time to put some work in on a few of my WIP's

I was not able to get any work done on my HAED but after I got home I did finish another page, that is 24 done and 25th started.
