I'm Here!!!

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

I got up early and excited to be going to the airport to pick up Pam. Today we were heading for New Hampshire. I arrived at the airport just as I thought her plane should be in. I waited and waited and began to wonder, did I have the wrong airlines, did I forget what Pam looked like and missed her. After about an hour here she came wheeling her suitcase. Didn't the airlines know not to delay her plane that she was excited to get her. We loaded up the car and headed out. Our first stop was to get something to eat at the Cracker Barrel. We used this time to get caught up.

Here was our first stop in New Hampshire. I got a couple of things one was the
 By the Bay Needlework fall stitch an inch.

We drove another 50 miles or so and arrived at the Shaker Museum. When we reached our off ramp we both just screamed "Were here". Nataly was ready to greet us upon arrival. I didn't get a picture of our room yet .

On our beds was a folder with our itinary and a card.

A few weeks back I won a give away from Carol at The Polka Dot Chicken. I won a gift certificate to any shop I wanted. I picked ABC Stitch. I received my certificate when I arrived. I can't wait to see what I will use it for when we have our side trip to visit the shop.

We all gathered for a  reception and to get to know each other. We met Belinda our teacher. Two girls who were at the retreat last fall with us were back also. It was fun catching up. Afterwards when we went up to our rooms there was a little goodie bag hanging on our door.

Pam gave me a gift when we arrived. It was so nice of her to stitch this scissor necklace for me. It sounds like a good excuse to buy another pair of scissors.

Well that's it for today. Tomorrow we will get our projects and get started stitching.

Always keep love in your stitches,
