Wow! What a fantastic weekend, for friends, for stitching, for the weather, and for TOO MUCH food (mmmm weigh in might not be good tomorrow I didn't track a single point all weekend)!!!
Sadly Thursday night I received a phone call from Judy, she wasn't able to join us for the weekend due to a family emergency. Judy you were talked about (don't worry in a good light), you were missed and we're all looking forward to meeting you in the near future!!!
Friday after work Christin (thank you for helping the ladies at work all day!) and I loaded into my poor little car (I think I've put on 6,000 KM since the end of July) and set off to Kathy's place on the shores of Lake Ontario outside of Brighton, Ontario. I pulled up to Kathy's happy to see that Beatrice's car was already there. We were warmly welcomed and not too long after arriving Kathy had a nice dinner ready for the four of us. It didn't take us long to get stitching, since I was soooo tired I pulled out Paradigm Lost, it was about the only project I was capable of focusing on. We stitched late into the night.

Before lunch on Saturday the gang started to arrive!
Here's Saturday's group shot... not the best unfortunately I didn't take the lighting into account, but we so wanted the lake in the background.

Lunch and dinner were both pot luck, and once again we stitched late into the night. Spending the night on Saturday were Lynn, Christin, and I.

Sunday once again, before lunch some people showed up for a second day of stitching, and some new faces.

On Sunday I couldn't quite settle on what I was working on... I worked on Paradigm Lost, a week bit of Pomegranates and Pears, a little on Blackstone Fantasy Garden, and two ornaments (they match).
Sadly this morning Christin and I had to head back home... I wish Kathy lived much closer!!!
