All the pincushions everyone made were on display . . . beautiful work! If you participated in the Heifer project, you would randomly get one of the pincushions!
Friday was our first class. In our track we had Shepherd's Bush first. It's been a long time since we've had a class with them. We knew we liked all the designers in both tracks and chose this track because we were curious to see what Cecile & Rachel with Just Another Button Company had to offer.
There are no two sweeter people on the planet than Tina and Terri! Their designs never disappoint and with Jill Rensel's mats/frames you can't help but drool! We sorted threads and began with a companion piece pincushion to review the specialty stitches that will be in the larger piece. Terri had a little wool pumpkin pin-keep project for us to do as well.
And, if this track wasn't already good enough . . . our friends (equally as sweet as Tina & Terri) Nancy, Lancy & Tammy were in our track as well! So much fun reconnecting with our retreat friends!!!
We had the afternoon free and headed to Park City for lunch and shopping!
Friday evening we gathered for "Bountiful Buttons" with Cecile and Rachel. We made buttons (and other goodies) from polymer clay. Cecile and Terri and others stayed up late "cooking" them in toaster ovens to harden the clay. They were delivered to us, along with some "professionally" made buttons in a cute jar!
Look for the last day of retreat and the banquet tomorrow . . . trying to drag this out to make it last!!!!
