Back from a fantastic weekend

What a great weekend we had at the Creative Craft Retreat - 50 happy ladies spending a whole weekend doing craft, lovely meals provided, lots of chatting, plenty of laughs - all in a beautiful setting at Lake Perseverance.

Here are the kits all set up ready for the arrival of the class:

My class of 8 ladies did a great job with their Etui. Here's Delma with her pretty pink choice:

Margaret and Robyn chose autumn tones:

Pat's soft green version is going to be a gift - lucky recipient! :

Here's Jan and Chris working hard ... with Jan's lovely aqua:

And isn't Rosemarie's sweet in blue:

Then there's Jill's pale green one with copper and pink accents. Don't you love the gold daisies?

And Chris's with lots of rich purples and cerise:

They managed to get them either finished or to an "almost finished" state so it was a great accomplishment. Don't you think they have done really well?

Happy stitching!
