A day out at Welcome Stitchery and lunch

Hi!
Yesterday was our outting at Welcome Stitchery and lunch at Finn McCools Irish Pub.

Eva, Marguerite and a blurry Kim. Sorry!



left around the table is Cindy, Val, Renae, Mike, Barb and another blurry Kim I guess she couldn't stay still

I stole pic's from Eva's blog. They include me, just to prove I was there, lol




This is a pic of the group in front of McCools
From the left Eva , Mike, Val, Kim, Renae, Barb, Cindy and Marguerite. minus me, I took the pic.



My shopping bag consisted of fabric, threads and I copied Cathey and bought Photo Booth Snowmen kit. It is so cute. They also have a new one out with a chicken and pig, but I love the snowmen.
I also left "And They Sinned" to be framed. So in like three-four weeks I will have it back. Yay!! Hopefully it can be picked up for my birthday in a month. That will probably be my only gift, lol, I will be happy to get it back framed and hung in the house
It was a fun day and I got to meet a few new stitchers, including
blogger Cindy.
It was great to see ya all.
I was so excited I thought I would have company driving there, but Meari woke up not feeling so good that morning. I hope she can make it the next time.
Thank You all for your kind comments and e-mails. Thanks to those who also follow my blog. It's so much appreciated.
Have a super duper work week.

I can't wait to see your ATS framed. I missed your last post about Judith Kirby. I hope to find those patterns on ebay one day. I love Halloween.

It looks like you had the best time with your friends. I can't think of a better way to spend the day then with stitching friends. I'm anxiously awaiting your ATS framed. It's one of my most favorite pieces and I'm always thrilled to see that someone else has done this too! The Snowman chart is adorable!

Maren said...

That's really neat, to have so many that live near enough to get together every now and again. Looks like you guys had a real ball!
