Kathy's Annual Labour Day Stitchy Weekend

Every Labour Day Weekend Kathy hosts her annual stitching weekend!  It unofficially starts Friday Night (Christin and I always show up on Friday night) and ends sometime on Monday.  Christin and I always hit the road after work on the Friday before Labour Day and spend a stitchy filled long weekend at Kathy's!

As usual it was an excellent three days of stitching fun and laughs!  Oh and did I mention wayyy too much food?  In attendance over the weekend were of course our hostess, Kathy, myself, Christin, Beatrice, Bonnie, Kim, Angie, Judie, Fran, Beth and Adriana.

Once again, I'll let the pictures do the talking!

This weekend is always bittersweet.  It marks the end of Summer and our many fantastic stitching get togethers.  Some of these ladies I won't see again until November, and some until next year.  Its a fantastic time, but always sad to leave when its over.

What a great weekend and such lovely company too. Your "favourite 96 year old stitcher", how many 96 year old stitchers do you know? LOL.
Can you imagine us all still blogging away when we're 96?

Looks like it was another fun and successful stitching weekend at Kathy's. I'm sorry I had to miss and hope I can make it next year. I did stitch along from home though.
