A wonderful weekend on Guemes Island, WA. four of my favorite friends settled in to a big Red Barn and started our Mary Wigham samplers. The weather was perfect no heat just cool breezes and sun. We spent each day stitching on "Mary" and laughing. What more could you ask for. We started the weekend retreat in Anacortes with lunch and shopping then took the ferry over to Guemes Island. It looked like everyone else had the same thought but only missed one ferry and then we were on our way. The Red Barn was beautiful 3 bedrooms and big kitchen two big tables to work and eat on. No cleaning up projects to eat. We spent each day stitching and talking. Took a walk to the old grave yard and found some interesting gravestones, some had such heart tugging sayings. At night i found i fell asleep so easily in the quiet dark dark nights. no city lights here to hide the night skies. We hope to do this twice a year. feel pretty lucky to have such good friends who love what i love.
stitching... till next time
