I blinked and a month went by. Why does that keep happening?? And although this time has passed, I simply must tell you about Sew South. Nearly 4 full days of friends, fun, laughing, crying (the good kind - from meaningful conversations), chatting, food, and very little sleep - all among the backdrop of fabric, thread, sewing, and classes. It was the best! I came home exhausted in the best way, feeling full and satisfied in deep places in my heart. It was just what I was needing. The people are by far the BEST part about a retreat and it was so great to see old friends and meet new ones too. Lots of laughs, chatting, and nerding out over thread and fabric were happening all over the place. I'm awful about taking pictures during an event - I'm so in the moment I don't even think about it - but here are a few taken with my cell phone.

Di, Trina, and Cindy. Interestingly, three additional members of this bee were together that same weekend on the other side of the world :).

A highlight for me was when we presented Jennifer with the quilt we had made her, but alas, that deserves it's own post so I'll write about that later. Spoiler alert - lots of tears that morning!
