A Strawberry Weekend Retreat

The retreat is right around the corner. I can't believe how quickly the time has rushed by! Things are falling into place and I'm sure I will be sitting around eating bon bons the week of the retreat! Ha!
Just a quick note to all that have signed up....I'm releasing the extra rooms at Hotel Strasburg on Thursday. So if you haven't reserved a room, now is the time!
The kits have been put in the mail for the pre-stitching. Of course, because I am Tracy, I made a small mistake in my directions. Email me if you have any questions.
The weekend of the 11th of this month, Chuck and I drove to Syracuse NY to attend the retreat put on by Jan of A Stitcher's Garden. I taught a class called A Primitive Heart Needlecase. The students were great fun and I had some that almost completed their needlecase in the 2.5 hours of class time that we had. Ann and Liz from Brightneedle were there as well as Nancy from Glory Bee. All three are fantastic teachers and had wonderful projects. It was just a great weekend and Jan's shop is amazing! Thanks to all who made it a special weekend.
I'm trying to do some spring cleaning this week. My son is going to be moving out in the next few weeks and I'm anxious to get my space back. He is in Germany til the end of the month and then will be home for a few days to pack up before he goes to Germany again. I want to have every thing ready for him to put in his truck so he will be sure to take it. My oldest daughter still hasn't taken boxes of clothes and junk that she packed up two years ago! I'm going to be tougher this time!!!
Spring is almost here...although the calendar says it's spring the weather is still quite chilly. But the crocus have popped up through the hard ground and there are tiny buds on the trees. I'm very ready for warmth!
Have a great early spring and I'm sending out warmer weather wishes for all of you still frozen under a layer of snow!
