"We may run, walk, stumble, drive or fly,
but let us never lose sight of the reason
for the journey, or miss a chance to see
a rainbow on the way."
My journey is almost to it's end. I cannot tell you what a wonderful time this as been. Not just in stitching two new projects, or visiting so many exciting places but in the stitching friends I go home with.
Here is a picture of our room at the Shaker House. It is a very simple room with no TV or fancies. It was very peaceful and inviting.
Last year when I attended the retreat I was so excited to meet Nataly because I had been following her blog Nataly's Needle Creation. She was back again this year being our wonderful hostess. She did a fantastic job spoiling us to no end. A "BIG" thank you Nataly for all your hard work.
Last year I met Pam - Confessions of a Southern Stitcher. We became friends and email each other just about every day. It was so wonderful to see her again in person and spend some great quality time together.
Pam, Nataly and myself
What a treat it was to meet Carol - Stitching 'n Stashing. She is a follower of mine.
She is brand new to blogging
This is sisters Sue and Dawn from New York.
They are stalkers of my blog but don't have a blog themselves.
This is Lesley and Patricia from Maine. We met them last year at the retreat.
They are both new stalkers to my blog.
These four girls really made the retreat fun. They flew in from Australia to attend the retreat.
Janette, Sonia, Maralyn & Kathy. Pam and I spent our free day with them and learned so many new
We left the retreat with so many new stitching friends. Yesterday Pam and I spent the day driving around New Hampshire and filling up all those last few inches we had left in our suitcases. Tomorrow I am meeting a fellow blogger Deborah - Cranberry Sampling. I have been invited to join their stitching group. That should keep me out of trouble and not buying anything else until I fly home tomorrow night.
Thank you so much for the wonderful comments and following me on this journey.
Always keep love in your stitches,
