March Retreat Report

This weekend was the Knowledge and Needles Spring Retreat.  Three days of stitching, eating and sleeping.  Dani and I loaded into the car Friday morning, went for a nice breakfast and then the back roads to Kingston where we stopped briefly before hitting the 401 for the rest of the trip.

Along the way there were some gorgeous views.  I took this one with my phone.

 I decided not to do people shots this year.  Here is a sampling of the finished stitching that was on display. 

Saturday we were treated to a wonderful lunch by Dan:

We had a visitor who decided he would get lunch from the bird feeder.  Bad squirrel.

Here is my stitching progress from the weekend. There was a lot of black, and for a change, dark brown.

Forest walk - also to be called Olive the dragon

 We stitched to a lovely fire

before sadly having to pack up Sunday morning for the trip home.

Thank you Ann and Dan and everyone for a lovely weekend.  Til next year :)

Oh and Kathy:  when I got home I pulled out PL and did a little.
