The mini-retreat is over...it was great...good friends, good food (and lots of it), beautiful projects. Everybody got a lot done. I'll be posting pictures tomorrow when I have a bit more time. I have pictures of several of the projects people were working on. We stayed warm and cozy with a wood fire; the weather here was really cold (below zero on Thursday night). We sewed in my sunroom (which has lots of windows), so we enjoyed watching a little snow fall today; it was beautiful--just enough to be pretty.
