|View over looking the lake|
The basement was set up with tables, comfy chairs and good lighting. Just what we needed for all day and late night stitching. (Late as in 2 am!) It has taken me all week to catch up on my sleep. But it was so worth it!
Some of the girls set up their work in a sitting room upstairs that had a great view of the lake.
The projects that were being worked on were incredible. Tracey is stitching a Star Wars piece.
And this is Kathy from the Thread & Eye shop working on an incredibly detailed, large project.
And there were Knitters there too! Meet Robin, a reader of the blog. Hi, Robin. It was great to meet you in person!
And Adrienne, taking a break from stitching to work on her sock. She also had the best project bags from Zig Zag Stitches.
Once Adrienne and I realized we were both sock Knitters, we compared hand knit socks each morning at breakfast :)
These are the "Upstairs Girls" that I spent most of the weekend stitching with. If you thought other knitters were enablers, I can tell you that cross stitchers are just as "encouraging" when it comes to suggesting new patterns to buy, designers to check out and stitch a longs to join! Thanks for making me a part of the group ladies!
I did venture outside a few times over the weekend when I needed to give my eyes a rest and stretch my legs. The weather outside was windy and cool - even a few snowflakes - but my knitwear kept me warm.
Happy knitting (and stitching) everyone!
