They obviously missed the sounds of glee at all that food and the groans at the end of each meal.
We laughed, stitched, ate, showed off our stitching. laughed some more, ate some more, stitched a bit, then ate some more and laughed some more. I took the out of town girls on a road trip to Knowledge and Needles on Saturday afternoon. Hey, you can never have enough stash.

Oh what fun we had!! So much that we have decided to do this again next year. Want to join us?
If you would like to see other photos, I am sure you will find them on Lynn, Christin, Dani and Beatrice blogs over the next few days.
I received a couple of lovely gifts from some of my guests. I must show you the lovely gift from Dani. Details can be found on her blog.
Isn't this just the cutest thing!I have this smalls basket that has nothing in it. Dani's biscornu will take pride of place beside my Book of Stitches that now resides in that basket. One day that basket will have lots of lovely stitchy things in it.
Do you remember this piece? This was to be a Fair and Square and I stitched it on the wrong count fabric. Well, I turned it into a biscornu as a gift for a neighbor who is moving away. I think it will make a great pinchushion for her.
Now, I did a little stitching this week but not enough.
I pulled out Noddy and now he has a car. Once I get the background filled on this piece I will outline the car and then decide where to go from there.
I did a little work on Marjean's RR but am making slow progress. Everyone keep her in your prayers as she is in Louisiana and in the vicinity of the hurricanes. I don't know if she has evacuated or not.
And surprise, surprise - Paradigm has made an appearance. I worked on the motif on the bottom right and got a nice chunk done. I will post this to the Snowbird Blog. I expect to see other posts to that blog too as Dani, Beatrice, Christin and I all worked on it at some point during the weekend. I did some exchange stitching as well but cannot show that for some time.
We have had the most beautiful weather these past few days and it is supposed to continue until late next week. I am going to end now, pick up my stitching and enjoy some of this lovely weather.
Happy Labor Day Weekend to you all!!
