Some more Retreat photos


As promised here are a few more photos from the retreat. There is quite a number of people who have photos on other blogs as well .
Check out Christin sitting with Angie and my Mom Adriana...Do you think Christin looks like she is in deep concentration. Yup...
The Guardian is almost finished.
Christin has photos as well.
The banners were stitched by some of the girls at last years retreat and some this year. Such enabeling.




Rebecca and Christianne are two of the ladies that came for the first time. I think they are hooked because they are coming to the fall retreat at a local Bed and Breakfast.
They were quite comfortable on Ann's front porch.

What a great time we had!!

Hi Beatrice,

It's nice to see the pictures from the retreat on your blog. Especially when it puts faces to names. And shows off all the lovely stitching. It would be so much fun to attend something like this with a bunch of dedicated stitchers.

Wow, that lovely Medieval Mystery piece that Dani stitched, framed and gave to you is amazing. What an incredibly nice thing to do. Hmmm. What do you think she would do if I wrote her that I really, really like her Noah's Sub??? Lol!

I've been seeing those beaded scissor keepers all over the place these days. They seem to be lots of fun to design and make.

Congrats too on the finish of the sampler for your friends grandson. That's quite a unique piece, to tie a lock of the child's hair to it and save. I'm sure it will mean a lot to your friend, and to her family.

Can you believe the cooler weather we're having?? It almost seems like...dare I say it....Fall!!!
Nice to stay inside and stitch in the warmth.

Cheers!! Judy

It sounds like you all had a marvelous time, I wish I could have been a part of it, however, I am down here in the Southwest US. The piece you received is just gorgeous.

Hey! Great photo of Chrisanne and I! We did have a lovely time on both the back deck and front porch...and the food was awesome! Can't wait for the fall and then the retreat next year!
It was great meeting you and putting a face/voice with someone from the online world.
