well this was jean bernard and my 4th retreat held for the 2nd year in was wonderful truly...the first year to hold it in the old school which was great...lots of things to iron out but for a first truly we feel successful...we will be back in Iowa next year...dates are sept 9th thru 12th mark that date and join us...jean is working on the prototype doll as I write...I sent my part with her and we are thinking mixed media, cloth, wire and wax wohooo and whatever else we come up with...I do have pictures of the challenge which all the dolls were so amazing...the theme was fall or halloween....we also did a pincushion swap and wow if you can call them pincushions they were so year theme is fractured fairytales and we will swap ornaments...i'm also working on my part for cifi convention where jean and i again tag team teach which is so much fun...i finished the head today...seem to have caught a bug of sorts so moving more slowly then normal but i will keep on keeping on rofl

OH! how I wish I could have been there BUT couldn't. BOOHOOHOO!! Looks like I can't go next year either. It's during my anniversary and we always go away. MMMMMMMMM!! Maybe I can get Ken to go to Iowa for our anniversary. Now that is a wonderful thought. :-)
