UnExpected Retreat!!!

I was offered a chance to go on a retreat this weekend. I had no plans on doing this, but after someone had to cancel a few of my good stitching buds talked me into going. This picture was taken of the whole group after dinner on Saturday night. We had a great time, lots of marvelous home cooked food, fun and stitching!!

Here is all of us girls and the chef. We stayed at the Belisle Ranch. It's an awesome place to have a retreat.

Here I am with the culprits who talked me into this retreat. Jackie, me and Chris with Julie behind us.

This is Chris and her Aunt Shirley. Chris Stitched the mystery sampler from The Gift of Stitching Magazine and since Shirley just loved the sampler Chris personalized it with Shirley's family information and gave it to her. It turned out so great and Shirley is going to get it framed and hang it above this fireplace.

Good for you for going, Joan. Maybe that's what you needed--to get away.
