Stitching Getaway

Today I am havng a quiet day at home...of course all that means is that I have no plans to go anywhere in the car...I will still take the dogs for a walk...when it warms up outside a little bit...-5 out there right now... and I hope to spend some quality time stitching on page 2 of Jeannette Douglas's "My stitching album" . This page is called Milanese Moments and pictures will be forthcoming as I get something done on it!

Meanwhile here are some shots of the getaway to add to those Dani
and Beatrice have already posted....

Chef and Sous Chef in the kitchen...I am impressed with how clean everything is after they prepared food for 18 people!

Just glancing at all these pics makes me think I should e-mail them all to the Ott light company...good advertising for them.
This has been at least the 6th or 7th year for the Getaway...the participants keep coming back for more and we keep on eating and stitching and staying up late...a good time was had by all.

It was a great weekend Ann! But I put on 2 lbs! I can't wait for next year!

Okay, now I am officially just plain jealous. I have seen the pictures also at Dani's and Beatrice's blogs. It looks as though it was a wonderful weekend. We may just have to emigrate.

Looks like you had a wonderful weekend - how can I join this wonderful group next year?

Beatrice said...

Great photos Ann and I even managed to lose 1/2 a lb. I guess I didn't eat enough lololol.

Wow, looks like a great time was had by all. Sure can't use distance as an excuse....guess if I gave myself a good kick in the pants and out of the house once in a while, I'd know about these things and wouldn't miss the all the fun, eh?
