Last weekend I went off to a family wedding. I intend to stitch something for the bride but I've been waiting for the right fabric since March. It hasn't helped I'm being picky about what grey I want to use. It was a fun weekend and I see no reason to bore you with pictures - though I have a few good blackmail ones.
This past weekend I was lucky enough to be invited to visit Shelia at Georgian Bay. Thursday after work it was into the car for the 6 and a half hour drive. Along the way we kept seeing turtles on the road side.
After arriving just after 11 it was unload the car and have a brief visit with Shelia, her husband Jim, Beatrice and Kathy who had arrived earlier. Friday we spent most of the day on the deck visiting and stitching... and enjoying Shelia's fab ice cream cake (to die for)
I over did the sun on Friday and now am a bright shade of red - I think my left foot got the worst of it.
Friday afternoon Rebecca, Rebecca's mom, and Bonnie joined us. Jim kindly bbq'd for us and we stitched into the night. Saturday Barb, Ann and Claire also joined us for a day of stitching and eating. We had dinner at a lovely restaurant by the water. Unfortunately the service wasn't very good- they had one waitress for our tables of 18. I also didn't get my food - she forgot me.
Yesterday we stitched until just after lunch before it was load up the car and the 7 and a half hour trip home. There is a lane reduction at Brockville that no one seems to understand they don't need to slow down for - thankfully the truckers soon sorted people out. We also saw more turtles - hence the title of this blog. One must things to amuse themselves with on road trips :)
Kathy talked me into working on PL - here's the progress. I was even good and worked on the border in the car on the way home.
No picture but I also started a wedding thing.
This week I'm in full learning mode as I have been given a huge project at work and must learn Microsoft SharePoint to do it. I'm a bit panicked about it, I may have a freak out.
