Day Four!

I'm almost to the "turning into a pumpkin" stage of the evening but I was bound and determined to keep current with my Blog posts on Asilomar!

Today we featured the last two of my students with their own personal show-and- tell. We have all enjoyed this part of the retreat SO much and I will definitely plan on keeping it as a permanent part of my classes here. I taught my Linen Ladies workshop today and it's always very special for me to see my students enjoy creating these heirlooms as much as I do. Each morning each of my students has been treated to a gift on their sewing machines when they they were treated to a "first come-first choice" gift. Barbara almost followed me into the classroom at 5:30 am to have first choice of linens from my stash :)

Tonight was my turn for a program presentation at Merrill Hall. Last year my rowdy, misbehaved and fun group of students made themselves well known and this year was no exception. I want to thank them for making my second teaching engagement at Asilomar so memorable! I never thought that the first year could be matched and it must have something to do with the magic here.

We have a half-day tomorrow and then I'm off to snug up with Kent in front of the fireplace...nice ending to another amazing week at Asilomar! Hugs, Cindy

I would have slept outside the room to get my first choice of linens from you!!! Safe travels.

Wow! This looks amazingly fun. I love the way sewing can draw you in and help you forget the outside world - but to really get away and with a group of friends? You must have felt like you died and went to heaven!!
