Awesome Gifts

On Saturday we went to the 8th annual retreat at Knowledge and Needles our LNS. Ann has been inviting a few of her customers to this retreat on a yearly basis and this was my 4th year.
We have a wonderful time and, stitch and be merry.

THANK YOU ANN for your hospitality.

My next Thank you goes to Christin and Dani.Who surprised me with lovely gifts.
Dani stitched this piece in 2005, It is the 6mos Mystery by Chatelaine called The Medievil Garden. When I saw it a few weeks ago I fell in love with it. I guess I gushed a lot, exclaiming the beauty of it. Unbeknownst to me she framed it [herself] and presented it to me at the retreat. WOW... she made me cry.
Christin assisted her in this little caper by providing the molding and She also gave me a chart I love and a beautiful Scissor Fob she made for me. The little elephant is special because I collect Elephants....Again these girls made me very Happy.

Of Course I also bought two charts to add to my stash. Yipee!!!

I wanted to share these photos with you. We had a ball. To see some more pictures go to Wendy's blog it was so much fun meeting some new people and catching up with people we met over the last few years.
I have more Retreat pictures that I will post as the days go by
