An Amazing Weekend With Friends!

It all started when my sister called and said that a friend of hers was talking about hosting a hooking retreat at her lovely farm get-away north of Toronto. But, she wasn't sure if enough people would be available to come( silly girl!), so my sis said, "well, I'll ask Debbe."(that would be me.)

So, fast forward a few weeks and lo and behold, 6 of us descend on Jane's Farm and begin unloading tons of food, bottles of wine, hooking frames, books, magazines, hiking boots and various baskets of wool for knitting, rug hooking, needle felting, you name it, we had it!

Anyway, we had the most fabulous three days, doing everything from the aforementioned handwork, to antiquing in Shelburne, hiking in the acres behind Jane's gorgeous spot, watching the deer and the bunnies and the birds, watching DVD's, drinking wine, making incredible art trading cards...all this while staying(largely) in our pj's!

So thanks to Jane, Elaine, Wanda, Karen, Bonnie, & Marion for a retreat to to follow...
