Retreat Gifts

It's always fun to receive little stitching goodies at retreat. This year's theme was "Sisters of the Heart"; coming up with theme related gifts was quite easy.

Our retreat goodie bag consisted of a project bag (can never have too many project bags!), a needle and some wool felt, and an ort catcher made with heart themed fabric. Not pictured is the water bottle with the NGM logo on it.

Here are some of the gifts I received from friends at the retreat...

We had a Secret Sister exchange this year. It was great fun giving and receiving small gifts each day. We didn't find out until the last night of the retreat who our Secret Sister was.

My Secret Sister surprised me with many goodies including diet Pepsi and sweet treats to keep me going through the retreat. She also included some beautiful handmade cards, needles, a scissors with hearts on it, and a handmade scissor fob!

The exchange was such a success that I think our group will be doing it again next year!
