Such fun!

Here are all of the wonderful women who attended my Once in a Blue Moon Fiber Art Retreat this weekend. It was such a great group! We had crisp fall weather at the Blue Ridge Assembly YMCA in Black Mountain, NC. 

We worked hard, but there was plenty of time for great meals, laughs, and fellowship. Participants chose between my passionflower and pumpkin designs, completing the fusible applique the first day (and part of the first night!) and getting a fair amount of thread sketching done on the second day.

This was my first retreat, and my first time teaching these new projects. Overall, things went well, thanks to Joyce (who coordinated registrations, cooked wonderful meals, and kept things running smoothly) and Donna (who assisted Joyce and generally helped out wherever  and whenever needed). We got some good ideas for things we can do differently – and better – at next year’s retreat (look for details coming soon!)
