Our September Sewing Retreat was fabulous. I had a great group of ladies who sewed all weekend long. At least that is when we were not eating or sleeping! We even had a massage therapist drop by on Saturday afternoon to ease those aching necks and backs.  What a life!

Our projects this time included pants, a jacket and a purse. Only a couple of ladies made it to the purse stage. Most made more than one pair of pants and some made two jackets! We did get a lot done, but had soooooo much fun! I wish that everyone could go on at least one of these. I think that most people leave refreshed and really excited about their sewing skills and projects. Maybe it is only me, the hostess and teacher, that comes home a little tired! It does my heart good to see people having so much fun sewing hour after hour! It is sheer heaven - no cooking, laundry, errands husbands, kids or even phone calls - if you wish!

On Sunday afternoon, before everyone left, I surprised everyone with one final project: we made wired ribbon roses for our jackets. The turned out beautiful! Ah, a good time was had by all!
