I have so much to share with you over the next week or so. The retreat was absolutely the best yet, and I say this every year. My 4 classes went well and the ladies are just so marvelous and dear. I had some time to stitch, and here are the results.....
The teaser I left you with before going to the retreat.... here it is with the first border added. I have the outer border picked out, and am still considering a name. It will be perfect for my table this spring. Speaking of spring, we have been having spring like weather. We have broken records in the state for the warm temperatures. Today it was 68 degrees......making us think that spring is just around the corner, but that surely cannot be possible.
Lets start at the very beginning......a very good place to start...... Leslie got right busy stitching. We did not want to waste any time.
And here I am determined to get the spring table topper completed.......I appliqued every chance I had.
Here are Leslies hand knitted and felted slippers.
And our stash of goodies.
I also found time to finish reading, Call the Midwife by Jennifer Worth. I had watched the series on PBS, but as usual the book is just as good if not better. I have a caption from the book that I want to share with you....."Now and then in life, love catches you unawares, illuminating the dark corners of your mind, and filling you with radiance." I would recommend this as a very good read.

I will have more to share over the next few days. I wish you all could have shared this amazing retreat with me.
