Cattail Retreat – Epilogue

This should really have been the prologue but I missed taking a photo of my pillow gifts at retreat. So I recreated what I gifted when I was back at my house. This photo is a similar design to what I shared for pillow gifts. I used the pumpkins in place of the “owleween” image and spooky moon paper.

Dawn also presented us with a purple and wine themed bowl warmer while we were settling in. She said it can be placed in the microwave with the bowl while heating so that fingers are protected from the hot bowl. The purple is on the opposite side of the print side.

I think it is too nice (partly because it is purple!) to use in the kitchen. I will instead use it as a bow bowl. I pre-tie bows so I’ll use the bowl to corral them before I place them on glue dot strips. Stampers pull a bow from the strip and attach it to their card. In between bow tying sessions, I will use it to corral my snippets of wool while I rug hook similar to how Dawn and Pam were using their bowls, to corral snippets of fabric while making straight edges. Thank you Dawn for the thoughtful and multi-purpose gift.

This concludes my posts about our weekend retreat at Cattail Retreats. I hope you enjoyed reading along. I enjoyed my time at retreat and sharing it with you.

Can you picture yourself on retreat with us next time? Remember that the focus of the weekend is working on your own projects. You can make as little or as large of a dent on your list as you would like to. Breakfast is on your own. The rest of the meals are split up so we are only preparing and cleaning up one meal per stay. If you would like to join us next time, use the Contact Me button above for more details and dates. I have weekends reserved for February, August and October.

Have a nice rest of your weekend!

Super Awesome Weekend Retreater Shirley

P.S.  I almost forget to share the visit to Nancy’s Notions in Beaver Dam. Pam’s trip is complete!
