This week’s episode includes a very abbreviated recap of my trip to the Peace Fleece Fiber Retreat.  I knew I wouldn’t be able to include everything, but after recording I realized how much I forgot to say!!!  One very important matter I forgot to mention was a visit from guest speaker Jo Israelson.  Jo is undertaking an amazing project called Abraham’s Tent that will be taking place in Portland, ME in Sept/Oct 2015.  Please visit her blog to read all about it and see how you can help!  Visit thestonepath.wordpress.com

Okay, I also totally spaced on my own KAL!  I had it in my head that the end date was April 1….DOH!  It’s April 30th!  I spend a few minutes talking about extending the end date to May 1, 2015.  Big whoop….now everyone gets and extra day :)  Sorry for the mix up……I have been extremely busy and tired!!!!

Also included is some spinning, events and the Let’s go Retro! grab bag!  Enjoy!!!
