What fun you are having! Love Gini's glasses.
MNnancy:Forgot to mention that Nana is learning to knit at this retreat. Is there a "Knitters Club of America"?
Cool. I'm learning to knit as well. My grandmother taught me a long time ago but I never got the hang of it. I'm making a scarf and some socks. I also want to try a hat.
I'm taking a couple Craftsy classes.
Ravelry.com is an online community for knitters and crocheters. I used to do a lot of crochet before I discovered quilting.
Darlene is showing us how to chenille. We'll post more progress later.
On the banks of the Mississippi River in north central Minnesota (Brainerd lakes area)
MNnancy:The girls are having fun dressing Gini. The cardinal earrings and finger pincushion are from Barbara.
Cool sunglasses and the earrings are really cute. Gini you make a great model.
Mary your mystery quilt looks great! I love the stars and the various shades of red you used.
Angèle from NWO
Nice to see everyone having fun. Oh and all the goodies bought. I'm sure I could use each and every bit of fabric, wool even the quilting tracers and the book! Everything tools great.
Gini, its nice to see how well the girls are taking care of you. The earrings and finger pincushion look good. Now I love the sunglasses you got from Gretchen. Where can you find such fun sunglasses?
Im thinking...two years and I'll be able to look at all these retreats and go to at least one! Then I'll enjoy every moment. Now I'm going to make supper and then se.
Gini, thank you so much for the FaceTime with everyone! I just got home at the same time as the snow! And then the best treat...your call came!
as for the knitters, it's great fun. I find it relaxing. Socks and mittens are a bit harder but with a good book and patience... Everything comes out great!
What is up with you girls, your being way to quiet
Deb finally finished a top. Yeh for her! Isn't it cute?
Marie that is wonderful. I will pray for everyone especially the mom & baby.

Nana, Barbara, Bonita & eveyone, love all the fabric & things you bought. Very pretty colors. Nana you are a great model they ladies fixed you up good. ha Nana I knit a little too. I make dish cloths and that is about it now. Small projects I can take with me most places. Sure love all the quilt tops & runners & wall hangings. Everyone is sooo talented and getting lots done while having fun. I think that is just great. I love the little chicken pin cushions. They are so colorful. Have a great evening & day tomorrow.
