Pictures from retreat (picture heavy)

Had a wonderful retreat with friends and got a bit of stitching finished but no pics of it to post yet. Hope by the end of the week I will have delivered the gift and then will post a picture. It took way longer to stitch than I thought as always but the stitching is complete and finishing will be done soon as I can find the backside piece of fabric.
Several people had finishes and everyone had plenty to stitch on, more so than we could ever finish. We started out at the local eatery, and then onto one of the local quilt stores. We may not have a needlework store but we have plenty of yarn and quilt stores around. I may have to go back to that quilt store to get a pattern for a lovely log cabin design. Not that I quilt but someday......
The weather turned out okay, it was snowing when I left but I don't think we had any more snow over the weekend. It was cold but the house has in floor heating and lots of windows so we were toasty warm. Friends, good books, good food and movies to enjoy and all the stitching you could possibly do. What more could a stitcher ask for? I wanted to share with you just how beautiful this place is. Lovely antique quilts, warm wooden furniture, wide open vistas and lots of great friends.
Hope your week has some time for stitching in it.
