Retreat Time is almost here

Every August the Loose Threads group head off to retreat at Mt Alford. 
These days - as we have to have a minimum of 12 - we invite some friends to tag along.  Some years - like this one - some of the "founding members" are not joining us for various reasons....but sew, laugh, chat, eat and maybe carry on a bit - we will!!!

Naturally, preparations have been in place for a while - well in  my case "the list" has been created, scrawled on, mislaid, re written any number of times - but it is now set in concrete (well in ink) and recorded in my "Retreat' notebook.  This is the list.

This is the collection of "stuff" - the projects anyway.

The sewing gear is organised, but I'm not packing it up yet - I still have time to sew before loading the car.  Whether or not I do is questionable.

I love getting away to sew - even if it is just a day - but for 5 days - oh - wonderful!!!!

I'm lucky to be able to go to more than one retreat - but this one is very special.  This is our 12th year but some of us have been going to a retreat since 2003.

The countdown has been going for a while - but tonight (Monday) it's only

3 sleeps

  6. I'm smiling as I read this Susan... I can totally identify with your happy anticipation of heading off for a few days to sew, eat & chat all day. Being so organised like that might seem a bit over the top, but it really is essential to making the Retreat a good one for yourself.


Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment - I do appreciate it and I do read them all.
I try to respond to everyone...but sometimes I can't find you . . .or sometimes life gets in the way.
