Saturday I was up bright and early (again) this time to pick up Christin in the city shortly before 9:30am, gas up the car, get a skinny caramel frappucino in me and hit the road again! This time it was off to Lynn's place for our July Get Together! I was surprised to find we weren't the first there but shortly after our arrival everyone started pouring in! There were 11 of us in total for the day's stitching. We lived up to our motto for sure Stitch, Eat, but no sleeping this time. There was a lot of fantastic projects being worked on and lots of healthy and decadent foods! Thank you Lynn for putting on such a great day and a fantastic spread! I'll let the pictures do the talking!
Beatrice was in attendance, her and Kathy made the 3 hour drive! That is dedication! Of course we're called the Travelling Stitcherhood for a reason. Our GTGs range anywhere from almost Cornwall, Ont. to Brighton, Ont. this way various people have the chance to have it close to home!
This is Lianne, she's new to the group. Earlier this summer she e-mailed me and Lynn looking to meet other stitchers. I was so glad I remembered to forward on the invite to her! She was so nice, I look forward to getting to know her better and of course stitch! In the background is Rosanne who I had me a few years ago at one of my retreats.
On the left is Rebecca's Mom Sylvia and on the right is Lori, she's new to my neck of the woods this last year and was brave enough to e-mail me as well to get to meet some stitchers. See, it pays to be brave and send out an e-mail you can meet some wonderful people!
Rebbecca is working away on Kaleidoscope by Ink Circles, I so want to start this piece some day soon! This was the second week in a row I got to see Rebbecca and Mom!
Shhhh... group session in progress!
Our wonderful hostess Lynn and the happy dance she got to share with us!
This is Leslie, she's form Lynn's stitching group. This is the first time we've met.
Here's my CD progress from Friday-Monday, not as much as I'd like to have gotten done but like I said the weekend was busy!
So after all that driving on Friday (at least I wasn't the driver that day) and Saturday, what did I do on Sunday? I got back in my car, again! This time I drove in the opposite direction to Arnprior where I met up with my friend Carolyn from work and I went kayaking for the first time! Carolyn has two and invited me to come join her. We spent about an hour on the Ottawa River, it was so nice but it was a warm day and I couldn't handle any longer than that! When I got home it was time for some serious napping! LOL!!!
Now onto the Weight Watchers front... somehow despite last week being a write-off food and exercise wise due to the heat I had a good week at the scale! I am down 1.5 lbs! I've started this week fully re-committed to the plan, determined to get back to goal!
