My daughter and I just got back from our weekend at Lake Shetek with about 35  other women. what a blast we had. We call it a Stitching Retreat but really it is a Creative Retreat. Some of us Cross Stitch, some Quilt and some scrapbook and stampin. There is lots of laughing, socializing, snacking and stitching. Here are a few pictures that I took.
