Snowy, cold weather kept us inside stitching
I had met some of the Friday stitchers on past visits to Brighton, so I knew some of the ladies. Also some of my good stitching friends were there, some of the usual suspects you have seen in the past on this blog. This retreat, my roommate was Bonnie, we had the same room as we did back in November which was nice, we had a King Sized bed!!! Boy did we stitch this weekend! The weather really helped in this endeavour because it snowed and it was cold! During the spring and fall retreats I always do my best to get out for a run each morning, now I am a fair weather runner, there is no way you're going to catch me out in the snow running!
I think at this point, I'm going to let the pictures do the talking!
The ladies chatting over Saturday morning breakfast
Ann & Sharon consulting over the DMC colour card
Sharon was pooped from stitching! She couldn't make it in November I was so glad to see her this weekend. She's moved further away so I dearly miss her!
The "stitching room" at Ann's set up for lunch
Loot bags at our place settings
Chef Butthead aka "Dan" explaining Saturday's lunch menu
Ham, amazing potatoes and broccoli for lunch. Ann made a great marmalade cake which I forgot to photograph
Saturday night I lit a bunch of candles for atmosphere and I got this awesome picture!
Ann (not Knowledge & Needles Ann) was so intent on her work this weekend! Her enthusiasm was contagious!
Brenda was fairly new to the group and we had a few good chats
Judie checking out Fran's work
Wendy, I've not seen her in awhile either!
Clare intent on a happy dance this past weekend! I love getting to see Clare its just too bad she lives over 5 hours from me!
Back in September Bonnie showed up to our get together with a great stitching bag... well they're becoming popular... notice we're in alphabetical order?
So ladies, another fantastic retreat! I can't wait for the next one in March at the tail end of March Break! I'm coming back from Arizona just in time to attend!
So what did I get done this weekend? Lots!
