2012 Jane’s Jubilee: Souhrada Women’s Retreat

What an amazing weekend.  I was up past midnight every night and believe I accomplished more in 3 days than I would have otherwise accomplished in 3 months at home.  I loved every minute of it!!  My projects were all complete: 1 walking rope, 1 pillowcase dress, 10 bibs, 2 Easter hats, displays for hair clips, and 130 pairs of PairFect Legs!  I came, I conquered!

This weekend has been a 5 year tradition at a few different locations.  I think this location took our sewing hearts!  Along for the ride was Jane’s shoe.  Not forgotten!

We went to Lester Prairie this year.  It was incredibly beautiful and we had so much space.  Going back next year!  This year we were short some family and it ended up being all mother/daughter.  It was a special weekend full of tribute to Jane.  On Friday we had an indoor bonfire complete with a fabric ring.  We did in fact sing Kum ba yah.
