My friends and I leave for our Spring? retreat today. It of course is snowing... after all it is Alaska. We meet for lunch and then maybe some fabric store browsing and then off to stitch for 3 days of fun, food, a good movie (we always have a movie night) and stitching, stitching stitching. I am taking more to stitch than will ever see the light of day but then I always do. It all has to get stitched anyway. I may even throw in a new start if I get bold. You never know what will make the final cut.
I am taking tonight's supper and a lunch choice (we tend to graze for lunch) and everyone else will add to the mix. You never know what will show up but it never fails to be good stuff.
Stitching time, long periods of stitching time, good friends, good food, you gotta love it.
Hope you have some stitching time in your weekend as well. Marjo


  1. It sounds like a wonderful time Marjo, enjoy your retreat - I'm envious!!

  2. It sounds wonderful!! Can't wait to hear all about it!

  3. I hope you have a wonderful time. And somehow I missed your last post about the Hedgehog Sampler and the Scarlett letter sampler. Love both of them - the SL piece I just bought a while ago, but don't think I have all the threads yet. I'm going to love watching your progress on it.

  4. I hope you have a great time, Marjo! Come back with lots of pictures to show us, okay?

  6. It sounds like a wonderful time. I like that you have a movie night too.

  7. Love your blog! I was just wondering if Alaska
    would be like Hawaii, do you have a lot of visitors from the lower 48?!
    Your retreat sure sounds like fun!
    I'm from you home state, northwest corner.
