This year there were a number of people who were unable to spend the whole weekend with us but dropped in on either the Saturday or Sunday to spend a few hours stitching and laughing. Always lots of laughing! My sides hurt at times. Besides stitching we also had some instruction on yoga from Bonnie and Beth was brave enough to give it a go while the rest of us giggled and groaned at their antics. There was no flippin' way I could even think about getting down on the floor! Does this mean I'm not flexible?
This post is pretty picture intensive but the pictures speak for themselves and show the wonderful group of women who shared in the fun this weekend.

Kathy spent the weekend stitching on her round robin commitment, a TW Band sampler. I'll save the pictures of that for my next post. By then I'll also have some updated pictures of all that I worked on over the course of the weekend.

Because this is a long weekend in Canada, the SAL continues until this afternoon. I returned home at supper yesterday since I wanted to spend today with my DH. After this weekend he returns to all his regular rehearsals now the summer is over and I don't expect to see all that much of him for the next while. I'm sure I'll be putting in a few more stitches over the course of the day and so I'll have some progress pics for you on my next post. I divided my stitching between 3 projects, my BBD Sunflower House, LHN America - Canadian version and a surprise gift for a friend. Tomorrow night I'll be stitching again as I join my Tuesday night gang. The fun continues!
