Retreat! Retreat!

You know you need to make more time in your busy life for retreats when it takes you over a week to post pictures and blog about the retreat you did manage to make time for... Two weekends ago, I went to Ragle's Retreat with a lovely group of ladies. I knitted, Tricia made beaded snowflakes, Angela scrapbooked, Kristin digitally scrapbooked and Chrystal did a bit of everything. We moved from the craft tables, to the dining table and back from Friday evening through Sunday afternoon. We watched seven chick flicks: You've Got Mail, The Proposal, The Devil Wears Prada, When Harry Met Sally, 13 Going on 30, 27 Dresses and Two Weeks Notice. Turns out New York City is a good setting for chick flicks...

Here was my spot for the weekend, equipped with all my tools (I'll do an entry later on the how-to of my hat making).

You say cup holder...

I say yarn holder!

Everyone hard at work. Current movie: You've Got Mail

Before...

After...

Redefining the term "hat box".

Our group. Kristin, me, Angela, Chrystal, Tricia.

I finished three Santa hats that I had started before this weekend and made 12 other hats. Besides hats and movies, there was good conversation, laughter, sopapilla cheesecake, other delicious meals and snacks, a little bit of sleep and overall a lot of fun! Thanks ladies for a great time. Let's do it again soon!
