Craft Retreat:
What a beautiful weekend, the weather was perfect! We were able to keep the doors and windows open to circulate fresh air. It was so beautiful out we all ate lunch together outside around the picnic tables.

Eight women attended and were amazing crafters! Masks, cross stitch, quilts, comforters and even puzzles were worked on throughout the weekend. A movie and fresh baked cookies were enjoyed Friday night! 

Below are some pictures to remember the weekend by! Thank you to the eight women who made this event so successful!
