I got home from my retreat very LATE Sunday night. I was exhausted...I have to tell you it is a VERY long drive from Pigeon Forge, TN to Bella Vista, AR!!! I had a BLAST!!! There is so much to tell you but I am still tired from this trip so I will be posting small updates. My friend Becki from my LNS came with me. We managed to stop at 3 LNS before we picked up Karin in Nashville. Then we stopped at 2 more!! They were just wonderful!!! I shopped way too much before the retreat started..

While at the retreat, I worked on my BRD sewing sampler. I decided the retreat was the perfect place to work on all those little squares....I thought..how could I win the frog this year, right?? Wrong!!! The sad thing is, I didn't win the frog by stitching I won the frog because I kept screwing up my beaded ornament that Debra was teaching us how to create. Well, I kept screwing mine up....so I won the frog ...this is 3 years running. I can't believe I did that...back to the stitching update. I spent my stitching time working on my BRD...well today I finished it!!! Yes I have a finish...I think I am down to 15 projects.

I also managed to buy fabrics for 9 projects!!! So, I think I am really think that I am well stocked on designs to work on for quite some time.. My friend Kim mailed me some wonderful Tiara q-snap huggers. I plan on using them with my Cinderella design from Nora Corbett. I am just loving this design...it looks so pretty. I will post an update later on!!
