Stitching Retreat and WIPs


Friday morning the gals and I headed for Asilomar in Pacific Grove, CA for our stitching retreat. We made a stop at our LNS on the way there, a trip to JoAnn's and lunch at Vivolo's Chowder House before checking into our rooms. We had an awesome stitching room where we met at 4PM and stitched the night away to almost midnight. I spent most of Saturday stitching so I made progress on the following projects. Sure was hard leaving on Sunday afternoon.
Spanish Sampler by Periphaeria Designs
Christmas Double Flip by Lizzie Kate
Colonial Women by Little House Needleworks

Here is the view taken from the balcony of my room at Asilomar. See why it was so hard to leave?! The ocean was so close.
