The solar eclipse
captured our
attention on the first
day.  Some wore
special glasses
provided by Kim
Caywood. while
some used the
shadow method.

THEN the sewing
began in earnest!
Let the
sewing
begin!!
Tube turning with
out a tube
turner...bringing one
next year!
Just ouside the back door...Lake Springfield beckoned to retreat
members.  Villa Maria is beautiful and peaceful by day or by night.
(Except when smoke alarms chirp.)
Many items were finished...even a hat!
