Annual Fiber Retreat in Edgemont, SD

We all went away to spin and play and EAT!! The girls from the Local Yarn Shop in Rapid City had a Fiber weekend Retreat the last weekend of April. About a dozen of us went and we had a great time. We spun core yarn, we dyed in pots and by “painting fiber”, we talked and laughed and ate, a lot. Rita makes the best eggs for breakfast and Doria made the most delicious scones. We also had spicy pecans, brownies, muffins, fruit, and chocolate peanut butter rice krispy bars, coffee, tea and wine. We were served a wonderful steak and leg of lamb supper with salad, baked potato, beans with bacon and strawberry shortcake, by the owners of the Sunrise Guest Ranch where we stayed for our retreat. It rained a little and snowed a little and the wood burning stove was the favorite place to be close to. Here are some fun photos of the Retreat:

    Where’s a photo of Sue? 🙂
    Looks like so much fun! I hope one day I’ll get to do something like this. I am really missing my weaving right now. In fact, I look at some of these old buildings and I think – how could I weave that? Or, as I watched the palace guard change a few days ago, all I could think of was that they are the warp and the weft that holds the sections of the palace in place. Gave me some good ideas of a new thing to try once I am back near my loom again!
    Once again, Sue, all I have are big thank you’s for introducing me to weaving!
