Even though I wasn't able to go the retreat in June to AR... I was sent all the materials (since I had paid my deposit).
One of the challenges was called Fiber Fun - you received a pattern, 11ct Aida, and a cigar box full of all sorts of fibers to stitch with. There was no key as to what color went where - you just needed to use the fibers that were provided. And stitch it the way you like.
I decided on the "Snowman" - a pattern from Mosey 'n Me. I did have one problem. I didn't have a needle big enough to thread half of the fibers I had..LOL
It may seem like I was lazy to not stitch in the Snowman.. but I thought it gave more of a primitive look.
