Weekend to End Women's Cancer

This past weekend I was at a craft retreat.  46 women attended this event and brought whatever craft they wanted to work on.  Each lucky lady had an eight foot table all to herself.  Meals were included, plus door prizes, plus a silent auction, plus a bake sale & tea on Saturday afternoon (this was open to the public and many came to admire the crafts on display)

This event is very dear to my heart
for a number of reasons
1.  It's a great cause
2.  It's a great way to accomplish a lot of projects
3.  You make new friends
4.  You can bring your sleeping bag & sleep on the stage
5.  It is held in the hall that my husband & I helped build.

This year made it more bitter sweet.
I completed my tower flag album of Brian's Spray Park
and one of the girls who organizes the weekend,
lost her husband to cancer the day before.
Many of the crafter their were sisters and friends of Brenda
and they were going to cancel the weekend
but at Brenda's request they went ahead with the event
and raised over $8,500 for women's cancer research
