Retreat

In years past I've shared about my sewing group in California and the retreats we went on.  I sure miss going with them.  So much fun and a great time to relax and get some projects done.  One of the things we always did is make little gifts for each other.  I still make them and send them back home to my friend Nikki to hand out.  It's my way of staying connected.

The name of our group is the Busy Beas.  Not Bees, Beas.  Nikki named it in honor of our dear friend who passed from breast cancer.  We still all collect bee stuff though.  I'm always on the lookout whenever I go shopping.

I'll show you what I sent last year:

Bee Bookmarks

I got the inspiration on Pinterest where they showed pink color swatches with heart punches.  I think they turned out just perfect!

I already know what I'm sending this year but can't show you until after retreat in February.  

I had great plans on what I wanted to do today after my normal routine of morning cleaning.  I need to take something back to Sam's Club.  I also wanted to go to the movie and go visit  the local quilt shop that was having an open house.  I guess that's not going to happen.  On top of the snow we got the other day, it's snowing pretty heavily out now. Son had to get the snow blower out yesterday to clear the drive and sidewalk and now it's getting covered again. A little light snow is alright but this is a bit too much for me to drive on. I've learned that you have to be flexible here as far as plans are concerned because of the weather.   My plan B will probably be some organizing, television watching and a nap.

I hope you have a great weekend and your plans don't get snowed out!

Love the way you think, nap is perfect for me today and no driving cause it will snow today.

We woke up to freezing rain which put paid to my morning plans. It thawed enough, though, that this afternoon we were able to get out. We went to Hobby Lobby in search of a fun clock for our basement. We found a great one, too.

You're so clever Miss Jean -- those little bookmarks are adorable! I think you're sending your snow this way -- we're supposed to get some tonight!
