One More Sleep!

I am a pretty happy person today! I left work today and I didn't even look back. I drove out of the parking lot and straight home to mix up a batch of jello shooters "Sex on the Beach" boy are they delicious we had them last year and they did not last very long. Janet brought Bailey's and served them in chocolate shooter glasses they were darned good too!
My stitching is in the precess of being packed and after dinner I will pack my clothes and then I will be ready for the drive to beautiful Lake Huron and to our beautiful resort. Twenty four ladies this year, oh happy day!
So needless to say I will not be blogging for a while but I will post photos when I return. My DH will be taking care of our dog and the house. He will enjoy being at home and spending time in the garden.
Take care everyone and have a good weekend. Just know The Stitching Sisters will be having a SUPER TIME!!!!!! We might have a bit of a head ache but that is so ok.

Eight more sleeps!

The Stitching Sisters are counting the days..... we have eight more sleeps until our retreat. Four glorious days at the lake. There will be 24 of us this year, one lady from Ottawa she is making the longest trip this year. Next year who knows maybe we will hold a challenge for the stitcher who travel's the farthest.
I am looking forward to four days of stotching, sleeping, and hopefully a few glasses of wine. And the best of things will be NO SCHEDULES!!!!! I am really tired and I need some time to just relax. The Stitcitching Sisters are the best group of ladies and we always have such a good time together. This year one of our sisters has lost a dear family member, her sister-in-law. Barb was to be on the retreat with us but she became very sick and has recently passed away. We are so sorry for you P and for your family. We also have another dear Stitching Sister who has been very ill and has so been looking forward to the retreat, she will not be able to come with us as she has just had a very serious operation and is recouperating. We will miss you so much L.  Get better soon.
At our stitching meeting last night at Henley's Landing one of our sisters said "Where have you been? Your blog has not been updated forever?" Well I have had computer problems and I have been out of the loop for a bit. But I am back and ready to rumble.
I ahve been stitching on a 4 Season wreath it is very pretty but the chart is something else. Thanks Irma, for the heads up. No wonder it took you so long to complete it.
Tonight I am not making my regular Thursday meeting I have been asked by my grandaughter to attend a graduation for her DARE program at her school. My grandchildren always come first, so I am off to the school in about an hour.
Have a great long week end everyone. In Canada we celebrate Victoria Day week end, and great news I do not have to work this Saturday so that means I have 3 days off!!!!

Spring where are you???

This is May, usuually we have warm wonderful weather but some how this year is very different. Friday night we had a terrible rain storm with very high winds, trees were down and some Ontario residents were without power. Lucky for us we kept ours. I had the week end off but the weather was so terrible on Saturday I did not go too far.
Sunday was a great day. My Mom was here visiting and we went to my oldest daughter's  for the afternoon and dinner to celebrate Mother's Day and also my son-in-law's birthday. Happy 33rd  Birthday Steve, his birthday is actually on the 12th but we were all together on Sunday so we did the cake and the birthday presents. He quite liked his new lawn mower!
I haven't done a whole lot of stitching lately, I have had other things going on. I am going to try to get back on track this week. I have my threads all ready to go on an all seasons wreath. I think that will be my next project unless a HAED comes my way. We will see what happens..............
Wow it is already May 10th. Our retreat is not very far away, yes I am counting the days!!!!!
Have a good week every one!

May is here

It is Wednesday May 5th. How great is this???? Our Stitching Sister Retreat is on May 28th. So you can bet that I am now counting the days until it is blast off time. I have 2 or 3 projects that I have lined up ready to pack. I have all the ingredients for my Sex on the Beach shooters, they were a big success last year. My cousin Sharon is bringing her Margerita maker this year, she may out shine me. That is so ok.
We have 20 ladies booked in for 3 days of stitching with some of us staying 4. That would be me. My massage is booked, last year I booked a half hour, it was so wonderful I booked an hour this year.
On Saturday I delivered  the Lizzie Kate bell pull to my wonderful cousin Sheila. She loved it, she was moved to tears and I received a huge hug.  She has suffered a lot of unhappiness in her life and it is always a happy time for me when I can bring joy to her life. Thank you Jayne again for helping me with the sewing of the final product. You are the best.
