In the (retreat exchange) box

I showed you what I took for an exchange gift last week - here is what I brought home.

This box was all wrapped up in brown paper with floss for a bow. I had no idea there was a pretty box inside - a nice bonus!

There were all kinds of goodies in the box. Two plastic storage boxes - can you ever have enough of those? A notepad, a journal, note cards, a stitching take-along tote, magnifier thingie, needle case, needle threader, small frame, flosses and a teeny tiny little box of tissues! There was also a small flag for a potted plant but it is on the patio - I'll show you that when I show you pics of the patio soon (been working on spiffing it up for the summer)

I didn't buy much this year - I got this pretty pair of scissors and the kit for 'Fresh from the Garden'. I just need to see if I have fabric for it or if I need to buy some. (it came with the floss) I did order one thing she didn't have there - hopefully it will be in soon. I also bought one other tiny thing that is in my stitching bag downstairs and I'll show it when my order comes in.

I will try to post project pictures tomorrow. I haven't made a stitch in mine since I got home.

We are supposed to have some storms coming through this afternoon. We need the rain but it has been cloudy and gloomy so far today - makes me want a nap!

Hope you had a great weekend!

Wow, what a great retreat package. I was thinking of getting that pincushion set. It's going to be wonderful when it's completed. What a lot of wonderful things in that box.
