Our retreat theme this year was A Garden Party complete with a white picket fence and our very own Mother Nature.
Throughout the week we were encouraged to attach flowers to the fence with notes which would be used in Saturday night's entertainment. Some of the notes were encouraging......
......and some were, well, not so much!
(At first glance you may think this is genuine praise, but a picture is worth a thousand words, as they say!)
Beautiful hats were the order of the day at the Garden Party. Rebecca's was complete with a garden hose.
Debbie, JoAnne and Robin's were true works of art.
Angela wore her Garden Party pearls.
And leave it to Julie. Not everyone can pull off a chicken for a hat!
If you think the hats were creative wait until you see some of the dresses! Cat......
and Rilla came appropriately dressed for a Garden Party.
Marcia thought it was a Gardening Party and she came dressed appropriately, too!
Mother Nature read our notes from the fence and her Helper Bee provided commentary.
We do have a lot of fun at retreat. We laugh a lot, we play a lot, we sew a little. And we enjoy being able to spend time with really good friends.
