Almost Over

"Why I'd like nothing better than to achieve some
bold adventure worthy of our trip."
Aristophanes

Today was our last day stitching. We have been working on a piece taught by Thea of Victoria Sampler.
It is a shaker style wooden spindle with a pin cushion on top and hanging from it a needlebook, strawberry cushion and a bee's wax heart.


In the afternoon we had another trip to the ABC Stitch shop. I only got a piece of linen and some threads this time around. We again enjoyed a wonderful selection of treats with tea.

The next two pictures are what was in our goodie bags on Saturday and Sunday night.


They really have spoiled us with the special little extras the entire time. The food has been just wonderful. Last night was steak and shrimp and tonight was turkey and ham. We have not been hungry the entire time.
Tonight was spent doing a little packing. Tomorrow we tell everyone good bye. Pam and I will spend the day seeing New Hampshire and then on Tuesday  I take her back to Boston to fly home that evening and I leave on Wednesday evening. We have had so much fun it is hard to believe it is starting to come to an end.

Thank you again for all the wonderful comments. I will get back into blog reading when I return home. It just seems like we stay up late talking and stitching and I haven't read as many as I would like. Will let you know where our travels take us tomorrow.

Always keep love in your stitches,
Teresa
