The night I arrived, we just found the car, then the hotel, and crashed. Wed. was the highlight of visiting the Silver Needle!!!
I took tons of photos, but they could never do the store justice. It is just filled to the brim with samples, old and new, and tons, yes tons of patterns, charts and supplies. I made three trips and did very well in staying in my budget. Now I only have to find a few items I've already
We met up with a very nice nurse from Washington state named Sonda. She needed a ride to the state park where the retreat was held, and we gladly invited her along. She was so helpful, and
We sat with two other ladies that were new to the retreat, so called our table the Newbie table. I wish we would have had more time to get to know more of the other ladies there. I would take a break and walk around the look at what everyone was doing the first day. That was before we had our project, so everyone was working on their own. I was in awe of many of the ladies' items. Dottie found a lovely chart of an apple tree and had just started it. I started my little Easter from Lizzie*Kate. It went very fast and easy .Sonda even had an original chart ofthe Tardis from Dr. Who, as her sons are big fans. Here she is working away on her box. I should have gotten a photo of her Tardis finished. Pat is seen next to her in the pink top. Pat and Kim use to work together and live in the Tulsa area.Happy stitching, and I'll post more tomorrow. Glad to be back home, and well again!
