...a "Sweet Retreat"!
I want to tell you what an incredible time I had...
but on the other hand I don't because you will all want to
go to this retreat next year and then there won't be any room for me!
I was able to meet some great women and form some friendships, each one of them made
the weekend extra special! I actually met someone who reads my blog. Miss Janet!!!
That is us up in the corner!
Also a friend of Lisa's from Stashmaster blog... Kay. And
Kay has a blog too! We were table mates along with Kristy and Lois-
I just loved these ladies!
(note to LeAnn: you should have come!)
... and then there was more shopping! Not fabric but a super cute
store that made you feel like you walked into a boutique in Paris.
Obviously Verna knows her way around these places and directed us, with
discount coupons in hand, to the cream of the crop-shops!
There was show and tell from Verna's veteran attendees!
More shopping... at In Between Stitches (love them) and there was "Sweet Retreat" gifts too!
If you look closely... near the bottom left is a little sample of
my applique handiwork! I did it! I actually did it!
I'm not sure if it was the special appliquers fairy dust that Verna sprinkled me with or
if she was just an excellent teacher.
Don't tell me that there is no such thing as Applique Fairy Dust!
