First, this past weekend was the Internation Hermit and Stitch Weekend. Although I was with a group most of the weekend, I did get some solitude before my good friend Dani arrived at Retreat. Just to prove I had a bit of Hermit time, I took a few pics ;)

This weekend was also the Knowledge and Needles Winter Retreat. I arrived just after noon and got all set up.
I will share my progress further down in the post, but here are some finishes from some others.
For more pics, check out Dani and Ann's Blogs :) Fran will most likely post some too.

At retreat, I worked on my Winter Mandala by Ink Circles. Here is a before and after pic. As usual I did a lot more than I thought I did!

Sunday afternoon I decided to pull out my HAED and stitch a few blocks.

Tonight is also the first TUSAL of the new year. This is organized by DaffyCat
At the beginning of the year I emptied my ort container like I have the two past years.
So here is my froggy and my Ort container after January has been added.
