Wow, what a weekend I have just had. Me and my friend Kaye went to a cross stitching retreat just outside of Mobile, Al. It was so nice to get away from home for a few hours (which is literally how it felt!). We left Friday and arrived there around 4:30. After dinner, the stitching room was opened. It was great to meet up with old friends and meet new people and even connect a few names floating around with faces. On Saturday night there was a stitching fair contest. I had taken my Chatelaine Leporello to enter. Well, guess what??? I won first place. I was given a generous gift certificate to use at the boutique at the retreat. Wow! I was not expecting that. When I got home today I also had another surprise in my mail box. I could not for the life of me figure out this address. When I opened it, I had a surprise from Diane for my winning the squash contest. I will post pictures of that later because I don't have photo access from my camera on this computer. Well, it has been a long, short, jampacked weekend with lots of fun memories to cherish. I am off to rest up for reality tomorrow.
