Girls weekend out!

I managed to get away from report cards for a weekend, and have a fabulous time with 4 other wonderful women! Maija, Natalea, Vivian, Sandy and I imposed ourselves on Niagara-on-the Lake (well, perhaps the imposition was high in the sky above Niagara Falls....)
Here are our gifties (so fun!!!)This is the softie that I made for our softie trade (I'm just loving bunnies)Here are all of our softies together(and did I tell you the one about the teacher who was teaching a purse class and her sewing machine dies? I didn't? Oh good.... because that was me)

These are some of the pincushions that I made for the girls -- not quite finished in the picture.
more pics coming soon....
