Spinning Retreat

A whole week has gone by, and I still haven't raved about the spinning retreat.

Clickety-Clack Ewe joined some old friends and a lot of new ones at Lindenwood for a gloriuos weekend of just spinning. This was spinning with no chores. There was no housework to do, no teenage children to fret over or ferry around, and no meal preparation. DH took care of all of that, bless his generous heart!

There were about thirty wonderful women there. We ate all our meals together in the convent's lower level , but otherwise all our waking hours were spent spinning and talking together. Bed was when we felt like it - for some, that was close to midnight.

Many brought food to share, so there was some serious diet-busting snacking going on. (Leave it to me to take a picture of the food!)
Naturally there was fiber to buy, too. See that bag front and center of the picture marked "Desert Sundown?" It's mine!
I had waaaaay more pictures, but I didn't bring fresh batteries, so they aren't useable. Otherwise, you could see that I got to sit next to my friend Elizabeth M the entire weekend, and was happy to see my friends Charlotte, Peggy and Susan. I really wish all my other Frog Pond Fiber Arts spinning friends could have been there, too.
