Today is the day!

Hello everyone, Today we leave for our The Stitching Sister's annual Retreat at Brentwood on the Beach on the beautiful shores of lake Huron. I have had a few glitches, my cell phone has decided to hide on me and I cannot find a chart that I need. But you know what I have other things to stitch so I am not worried. We are car pooling everyone is coming to my house and we leave at noon. Steve and Tucker will be guarding the house this week end. I will give you all an update on Monday! Here are a couple of photos taken last year at the beach,
These chairs need to be filled with stitchers, there is no better view than this we will be there soon beautiful Lake Huron! ~Happiest when stitching~

Triple Crown

May and June are special times for me and have been since I was a very little girl. My Grampa was a horse fanatic. When I was 5 years old he gave me probably the best gift give ever. He walked down our driveway leading a small pinto pony, his name was Cesare and boy did he have spunk.This was the start of a life time of loving horses. Well back to May and June. On May 5th it was time to watch the Kentucky Derby, the winner I'll Have Another, owned by a Canadian.
I'll Have another wins The Kentucky Derby Last night May 19th was the running of The Preakness and wow what a race. The conditions were perfect.
I'll Have Another wins The Preakness what an exciting finish! Now here is the scoop we have not had a Triple Crown winner since 1978 when Affirmed came through as our first Triple Crown winner. We have been waiting a long time for another. Is I'll Have Another going to be the one? I sure hope so. I will be glued to the TV in June to see if he has what it takes.
Affirmed is the last Triple Crown winner and what a great horse. Hopefully I'll Have Another will be our next one. Here's hoping!!!!! Stay tuned for the big race. My dear hubby is not really a horse person but I spend a lot of time watching hockey and tennis so each year when it comes to my favourite 3 horse races we watch them together and he has to admit he quite likes it. My Mom gets in on it too she called me to talk about it but I said we went out for dinner I will call you back as we taped it. I called her back and we had quite a time discussing it all. ~Happiest when stitching~

Stitching night

Wednesday nights are always so much fun, our stitching group has been gathering for 30 years. We have changed in many ways some people have joined and some have left right now we have 17 members. We are a cross section of personalities but when we gather around that big old table we are all the same we are "cross stitchers" Last night we seemed to be all at fever pitch, there was lots of laughter and many a stories being told. We welcomed Irma back she lives out of town now and has had surgery. She is looking better but is still tired. Patti was also in attendance she is our resident knitter (former cross stitcher) Trish was not there she had her bowling banquet, sure it has to be the same night, whatever.... Hope everyone has a great day. ~Happiest when stitching~
