Wonderful Beach House Retreat!!!

Felting & Beading & Shopping and that View!

What a great time we are all having at the 2011 Beach House Bead Retreat. The View out our window in the work area is just one of the best reasons to be here. To the left is the sunset on the ocean side and above is the sunrise.

Below are Sharon and Madeline shooting the sunset pictures looking north on the boardwalk in Mission Beach.

The retreat began with Arlene Watson's Nuno Felting Class.

Then Marcia DeCoster's Bedazzled Button Class.

Sunday was our free day to explore the area or do whatever anyone wants. Half the class booked a day at Arlene's Studio for a Nuno Scarf Class. The other half of the class hopped into my car and we drove up the Pacific Coast Highway through La Jolla and Del Mar, past Torrey Pines State Beach and on to Solana Beach and Encinitas. We stopped at the Solana Beach Farmer's market for shopping and lunch, then to The Black Sheep in Encinitas. One of the most amazing yarn stores in the country! It has been here since the 1960's and has an astounding inventory! Two of my students are taking a little field trip with Arlene today to shop there. A must since they were in her class while the rest of us shopped. I can't wait to see what they buy!
There will be more pictures of the beaded felt after today's class.
