Crafting Weekend

My family recently gave me a very special gift—a weekend to spend crafting with friends.  Fourteen other ladies and I retreated to the Wycliffe Associates Volunteer Center with all our gear.  The Volunteer Center is only a short walk from our home, and our “workroom” might have resembled a sweatshop, but we thoroughly enjoyed sewing, talking, eating meals we didn’t cook ourselves, creating and laughing till our sides hurt.

A majority of the women were working on quilts, but others were scrapbooking, sewing, editing videos and cross-stitching.  I made some progress on my 15-year cross-stitch project.  I started that peacock when we first arrived in PNG in 1999.  Think I’ll finish it before we leave?  …maybe if we have another crafting weekend soon.  <wink>
