Fall Retreat 2012

Warning - Picture Heavy

This weekend I attended the annual Fall Retreat hosted by Ann of Knowledge and Needles

I arrived around noon on Friday.  Unloaded the car, set up my stitching area, and then made my pot-luck contribution in a crock-pot.

I got lots of stitching done, especially on Blair's Dragon

Top was Saturday morning
Bottom is Saturday evening
This was my 4th year at the fall retreat, and my third participating in the ornament exchange.
Here are lots of pics of the ornaments that were in the exchange.

There was a total of 18 of us that attended.  Here are some pics of some of these stitchers doing what they do best.
