One of the ways I know if I've been to a great retreat is if I have to finish the projects at home. Although I would love to come home with a pile of finished pages, it would mean I had completed them all in the allocated hour to two hours. If I can finish them at home the pressure is off at the retreat and it extends the pleasure for some time afterwards. I hate not finishing things it would seem to be a waste of time and money to just leave them, so part 2 of the retreat is going on right now.
I enjoyed Kirsty's canvas class even though when I started it I didn't know what I was going to put on it. While I was waiting for the background to dry I remembered a photo of my best friend and I from a couple of years ago. Its one of my favourites and I have it in a plain frame in my craft room. I loved the finished article so much I bought another kit and have made one for Theresa as a present and this one has replaced the plain black frame.
I just love the colours in this.
