I'm Off Tomorrow......


......for 10 days in OCMD!  I'll be bookending two retreats, the DVHSG semi-annual retreat and Salty Yarns Jamboree and staying the few days in between. It's not worth driving 5 hours back and forth for two days at home. I have so been looking forward to seeing my stitchy friends and enjoying their camaraderie. The first weekend will be spent working on some WIPs , mainly Jax's stocking. The following weekend I will have three classes with three different teachers....... Summer House, Noteworthy Needle and Michelle Ink.  I will try to post while there but, to be honest, that never seems to work out.....but I promise to try.

Here is my 'staging' area by the front door.....why, oh why, do we take so much stuff??? Water is in the car, and food bag and cooler are at the ready for the AM.

 Here's wishing you all a good next week and hope to be back soon. Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!



  1. Stasi,
    Looks the right amount of stuff for the weekends. My friend and I used to stop at the Berlin Walmart on the way into the Jamboree. We would stock up on all the snacks, you would think we were going for weeks. (we were on the 3rd floor) Have a great time. I hope to go next year again when my stitchy friend can go.

  2. That sounds like the perfect 10 days!
    Have a safe trip & great time Stasi!

  3. LOL. I have a similar staging area. My husband always asked me….”don’t they have grocery stores where you are going” since I pack so much…..and that it not counting the projects we take because we believe we will get them ALL finished. Looking forward to adding flowers to your basket.

  4. Enjoy both of your outings -- the guild retreat and the Jamboree! We take that much because why would you want to make that 5 hour drive to get something. Safe travels, Stasi!

  5. Im feeling a bit green eyed at the moment Stasi.....not one but two retreats! We don't have much in the way of retreats over here. I'm sure you will have a wonderful time and I look forward to hearing all about it when you get back. Happy Stitching!

  6. Looking forward to seeing you soon at Jamboree!

  7. Oh my gosh Stasi: You are prepared, I am a last-minute packer, I envy people who are organized.
    Have a great day and fun time at retreats


  8. I hope you had a wonderful time! One of these days I'll really need to attend one of their retreats.
