RETREAT FUN!

I’m baaaaaccccckkkkk! ;-)

Three of my friends and I traveled to the mountains to meet four other friends for a week end of sewing and fun. My poor little Rodeo was loaded to the bulging point. Failed to get a picture of all the “stuff”. (it was a good thing I traveled very light)

As usual the week end consisted of sewing, eating, laughing and very little sleeping. All the sewing machines were whirring and many projects were completed. I managed to complete one (yes, just ONE) intense project and two very, very small projects. However, I was very happy with the results of my sewing because I needed a design wall and my project required that I do a little “sewing by committee” – LOL – needed a little input from friends.

I’ll share pictures of other completed projects as the week progresses.

Thanks for missing me! ;-)
