"Like all great travelers, I have seen more than I
remember and remember more then I have seen."
What a fun time I had on my last day of the trip. I got to not only meet a fellow blogger but got to join in on her stitching group. Deborah from Cranberry Sampler commented on my blog that I was near where she lived when I was by Plymouth Rock. I emailed her back and said I didn't really have any real plans for the last day of my trip. I heard it was her stitching group day so I was invited to join them.
This building use to be the towns library. When they built a new one this one was turned into a coffee/sandwich shop. How fun it would be to stitch here every week. For lunch I had the most delicious chicken salad wrap, it had cranberries and walnuts.
This church and building were across the street. I just love these small New England cities.
This is Deborah and her stitching friends. Two had to leave early.
Thank you so much for letting join your little group even if it was for just a day.
You all made me feel so welcome.
After the group it was time for me to leave all the beautiful fall colors.
It was a rainy ride back to the airport to turn in the rental car. I tried to get everything out of car and not get too wet. I loaded into the shuttle and headed for the airport. When I checked in I discovered my luggage was almost 5 pounds over. I was quickly pulling out fat quarters and stuffing them in my carry on and pulling out my big sweatshirt. After I got it down to 50 pounds I checked in and went to security. Just as I was going through I remembered my ghost scissors were still in my carry on. Made it OK, they didn't take them away. I spent my last couple of hours stitching away at the airport.
When I arrived back in Los Angeles (at 11:00 pm which was 2:00 am my body time) I was not only greeted by my husband but my son came home on leave from Grand Forks, North Dakota. He arrived about a hour before I did. His plane was early and mine was late.
Now the fun part of unpacking and trying to find a place for all the new stash. I had a wonderful time seeing new places, getting together with old and new friends with a bonus of stitching, stitching and more stitching.
I just finished one of the projects from the retreat and will post pictures soon.
Thank you to everyone who followed me on this journey and left such wonderful comments. I enjoyed reading them all. Now I need to get caught on my blog reading.
Always keep love in your stitches,
