Retreat 2007

August 21, 2007


I think this link is the easiest way to show the pictures that I took at the retreat on Saturday

http://www.knowledgeandneedles.com/Retreat%20Pictures.htm

As you will be able to see, we had a great time and there were some fabulous stitching projects on display. I did something different when I was loading the pics from the camera to the computer and could not, for some unknown reason, upload them easily. Putting them on my website seemed like the least burdensome way to go and they had to be posted there anyway.

At any rate, as you will see we had a great turnout and lots of fun. As usual the food was excellent and no one went away hungry. We saw some devious enabling going on and also got to see some amazing works in progress.
The four Tours de Marques come to mind. The seven Celtic Banners can be seen on Christin's blog at...

It was wonderful to visit with some old friends and to meet some new ones as well. Chrisanne, Rebecca, Linda and Sylvia were all very welcome. However I must tell you Rebecca, that Sylvia and Linda went off home without their name tags...How are they going to know who they are the next time they go someplace? (I'll have the tags here for them in November when I see you and your mom again)

I am very tired so I am going to curl up in a comfy chair and do a bit of stitching on my me project...Mary Engelbriet's "It's Good to be Queen" pictures will follow on a later post!

Looks like it was grand fun! I wish I could have been there. And hand stitched name tags - very sweet!

I had a great time at the retreat, Ann! Thank you so much for hosting such a wonderful event. The name tags were a lovely extra touch and mine is tucked safely away for next year.

Hi Ann,

Thank you so much for coming to visit me at my blog. It was lovely to hear from you. I must confess that I've been reading your blog for awhile, but had never left a comment, until now.

Your retreat looked like so much fun. It was great to see all those cross stitchers sitting together, and to see all the beautiful projects that they're working on.

It must have been a lot of work for you and your DH to put together, but you certainly did an amazing job. I'll be reading the blogs of some of the attendee's so I'll no doubt hear more about all the fun, food and stitching as I go.

Thanks for sharing, and do visit again. Cheers! Judy
