A Stitchy Weekend

I returned yesterday afternoon from the best stitchy weekend. With the help of the new GPS DH bought me, on Friday I traveled from the southwest corner of Ohio to the southwest corner of Indiana to spend the weekend with my good friend Jan. Mary came from the Chicago area for the weekend too and Tanya joined us for the day on Saturday. Mary, Jan, and I had a serious case of stitch a$$$, as Siobhan would say, all three nights. Saturday night we went on until 4:00 A.M. stitching, chatting and laughing the night away. Jan has a wonderful on-line needlework shop and the room where she has her shop stash was right next to the room I was sleeping in. It's hard to sleep knowing there is a room full of stash right next door. I'm afraid I did some serious damage to my checking account. I bought a few charts, but most of the $$$ were spent of linens and some silks. Aren't these too pretty? The camera doesn't do them justice, I'm afraid.

After much debate, I added the frame for LHN's Heart of America to my stash and then I drove away from Jan's yesterday and left it on her kitchen table. Fortunately I remembered before I got too far and went back for it.

I finished SB's Year in Stitches September and worked on Peppermint Twist, A Very Merry Autumn, and started BRD's Proud and True.

Today is my grandson, Daniel's 7th birthday so I want to wish him a Happy Birthday!

Thanks for reading and commenting, my friends.

And Happy Stitching!

Woohoo! I'm so glad you guys had such a good time. :) It looks like a very productive weekend, too! I love the stash enhancement--those linens look, ummm, to dye for. ROFLOL Sorry, couldn't resist the pun. Good for you for splurging on the Hearts frame--I love that line of frames!
