Off To RETREAT!

My bags are in the hall, my sleeping bag is out of the shed so that it won’t be freezing cold and I am just sorting through what projects to bring along for the weekend retreat at Camp Wildwood with some of the most awesome stitchers I know.

I brought lots of little things to work on this year because I’m not sure how long I can sit at a stretch in the camp chair. I have also promised myself that if I want to go and take a nap, I’m just going to do it!

I have lots of stuff that isn’t even stitching (knitting, felted dragon, sketchbook, journal etc.) but that is all part of the fun. Best of all, I won’t have to answer a phone, cook a meal, mediate a fight, drive anyone to an activity or other such commitment until Sunday after lunch. WhooooHoooo!

Part of being creative, is giving yourself time to recharge and just play. I brought along an assortment of my favorite Just Another Button Company Buttons to play with. If my camera weren’t already packed, I would take a picture of them now... but instead I will take one once I get to retreat and get settled in.

Did I mention I don’t have to cook any meals until Sunday at supper time?

Did I mention that I could sleep in tomorrow morning or take a nap if I wanted to?

Whooooooo Oho!
