Retreat Classes

Two of my classes at retreat were with Betsy Morgan. What I like most about classes with Betsy is that you always go home with something finished.

On Wednesday of retreat week I took the Edinburgh Reticule class. We had stitched the needlebook in advance and did the finishing in class.

Thursday's class was the Helix Etui. I was drawn to the interesting shape of this project. Here's the pincushion:

I have one more class project to share with you; need to first take pictures of it.

Today we went to watch my daughter play Australian Football. First time I've seen her play. I must admit, I don't understand the game! She plays for the Minnesota Freeze. They played against the Denver Bulldogs here in MN. She also plays on the development team for the U.S. She's a busy girl!

Great job on the class pieces--Betsy is a wonderful teacher!

So, this Australian football--is it football, soccer, rugby or a combo? Curious minds want to know!

Beautiful colors on both your projects, and the pincushion is really neat!
