Door County retreat

This weekend, Kendra, the owner of The Stitching Bee in Green Bay, hosted an awesome stitching retreat in Egg Harbor, WI. It was so much fun, and I spent so much time stitching, that I needed a 3-hour nap when I got home this afternoon, just to recover!

The dinners were yummy, and my room (really a mini-condo) was very comfortable. Also, free WiFi, so I could keep up with the boards on my down time! Here is a pic of the terrific goodie bag that Kendra put together:

We played "Name That Tune" for door prizes on Saturday night, with much fun had by all. :)  Next year will be the tenth anniversary of this retreat, so I'm already looking forward to that!

I also have to do a shout-out to Monica, who recognized me (or my blog, anyway) when she saw my Lizzie*Kate bonus pieces all stitched up; it was very fun to meet someone from the blogosphere. Also, to Donna, who I really enjoyed chatting with. :)

Since the piece that I'm stitching for Karen has gotten too large to travel with comfortably, I decided to take along my Mirabilia "Silver Moon Tea", and I was able to finish the entire moon!



Now when I get back to stitching on her, I'll be able to fill in her body before I move on to more background!

For now, it's back to my model, which should be finished this week; it's always a nice feeling of accomplishment to put one of those in the mail. :)

Hope everyone has a great stitchy week!
