What a day we had !

"I never travel without my diary.
One should always have something
sensational to read on the train."
Martin Buber


My diary is my blog and it is helping me to remember this wonder adventure. I am so happy you are taking the adventure with me.


 This is where we are staying in the Great Stone Dwelling building at the Shaker Museum, Enfield. New Hampshire.

Pam and I woke super early because we were so excited. Pam quietly went downstairs and got us a couple of these delicious oatmeal cranberry cookies Nataly made.


This is an area sat up downstairs that you can go to anytime day or night. There is cold drinks, coffee, hot tea, and lots of snacks.



This is the dining area where we have been having a the most delicious meals. Last night we had prime rib and halibut.



This is what we found at each place setting in the  work area. The blue box had our project in it and the blue bag and lots of charts and goodies.



This is me and our teacher Belinda from Blue Ribbon Designs.



This is our class project. I started the chair seat and hope to have it done today.


Here is Belinda teaching us. There is 14 fun ladies taking the class. Pam and I are having fun with 4 ladies that came from Australia to take the class.

After dinner we played Left, Right, Center. Instead of tokens we played with Floss. The winner at each table won 21 bundles of floss. Pam was the winner at our table. We then moved upstairs to the work room and had sharing time. Some brought some beautiful stuff to share. Later we played Yankee Swap and each of us won  a bag with some kind of stitch project. After much talking and laughing we headed off to bed. On our door knobs was another little treat bag with these silk thread and candies. They are sitting on some of the fall leaves I pickedd up.



Today we are stitching in the morning and then going on a trip to the shop, ABC Stitch. Can't wait to show you what I pick up.

Always keep love in your stitches,
Teresa
