Thank You MamaJoan for a Great Retreat!
I would like to award my BFF, MamaJoan, this Stitcher's Award, for hosting our Annual Stitching Retreat this year at her house. (If you click over to Joan's blog, you can see some of our festivities.)
There were 5 of us that attended, however Joan and I were the die-hards that were there the entire time. We started last Tuesday afternoon with a trip to our LNS and went back to Joan's for pizza. All others went home that night. It wasn't until Thursday morning when Lori came, who stayed until Friday evening, then Jackie came Thursday and Friday early afternoon and stayed into the evening each day. Then there was Cathy who joined us on Wednesday evening and came back on Friday evening. I got there Tuesday afternoon and had to leave late Saturday afternoon when my son came to pick me up.
We call Joan's house the "house of everything" as she and her husband, David, have just about anything you might need during your stay. One exception, David did not have a flatbed for us to haul all of our stuff in and out. LOL!
I had a very relaxing 4 days and got lots of stitching done. I will post pictures later. My stitching friend, Chris, will be quite proud!
Thank you, my BFF, Joan, for a great time. And yes, I am still feeling very olympic!
