This was the view from our balcony at the Canyons
resort in Park City Utah during the Shepherd's Bush Retreat. I don't think I've been that relaxed in a long long time. But as they say, all good things must end, and it certainly has.
This is the beautiful beaded bag that Joanna bought me at the Farmer's Market at the Canyons. I LOVE IT! THANKS JOANNA!
My retreat nametag with signatures from all the instructors and the gifts we were given each day in class.
This is the bag I made to carry my class projects in each day. I made four of them so that all my roomies would have one to match. It's lined with cream muslin and the heart on the end of the beaded zipper pull says "made with love".
Happy Haunting by Shepherd's Bush, our class project from Tina & Teri has some great buttons, beautiful linen and is just the most adorable design.
"THE" t-shirt from Roosters that I just had to have. Gotta love it.
Each day you get a retreat newsletter to let you know what's going on. This is the lot of them and the name of the person we were given to write a story about to present at the banquet.
"Scared Stitches" took the place of "Shared Stitches" this year, the collaboration project. This little bag was designed by Shepherd's Bush, with finishing instructions by Merry Cox, specially dyed linen by R&R, has a house on the front and bands on the back and a darling pumpkin charm by Charland to attach.
Amy Mitten did it again. Not only did she supply us with fantastic fibers and beautiful linen, but she wrote an entire mystery that was read in class. She not only wrote this elaborate story, she wrote two different endings, one for each class. Her kits are just the most amazing and her fibers....well they're "to dye for".
The kit by R&R Reproductions was a needlework pocket that had halloween motifs and YUMMY Crescent Colors fibers.
