Update from New England

Yesterday was tea at the ABC Stitch shop. We endded leg one of the retreat with a wonderful shopping trip with desserts and afternoon tea.

 There are a couple ladies at the shop doing wonderful work on silk gaze and I was inspired to purchase an Erical Michaels kit to try my hand at it. I still need to get a magnifier to be able to see it but we are havng an outing today (more shopping) and I should be able to find one while we ar out.
First round of stash from ABC yesterday. We will have a second trip at the end of the second retreat. Belinda leaves us today and Thea arrives, We have had some wonderful goodie baags in our rooms each night and fun give a ways. I wond a selection of overdyes while playing Left-Right-Center dice game. Tons of fun. I also won a pair of mermaid scissors last nigt with a necklace chain.

The food has been great as well. Last night was fried chicken, corn on the cob, salad an potatoes with a heavenlly chocloate cake with fresh whipping cream and strawberry sauce.

Getting ready for Retreat number 2!
