Kate: You are sooooooo good. Letting the Dr tell the parents "it's time" is wonderful. Thanks. Doing the on again, off again, on again thing is wearing me out.

Yep, the retreat was great! Got lots of cutting and sewing in!
Sounds like you had a great weekend too! (Even though you weren't able to squeeze in a visit to the local quilt shop!) But you're right: another time! ;-)
Hey- stay safe and warm! Enjoy your week! ~Marcia
