All Fiber Retreat

We had a couple of inches of snow yesterday and it has changed our whole landscape! Somehow it seems quieter and muffled by the snow. The bird are sure hungry and so are the sheep. Here is a lovely painting of Sheep in the Glen by Susan Westwood

One of the things we will be doing at the All Fiber Retreat in Columbus December 5-7 is knitted flowers. I will be demonstrating that. I missed all Susan's retreats last year so I am really looking forward to this year. I will be there Later on Friday and all day Saturday and Sunday. I have always had such a lovely time with the great people at Susan's retreats. Hope you will be there...
Call Susan: 920-623-4237 and let her know you are coming.
