A lovely time was had...

What a lovely time I had last weekend with a generous, funny and talented group of ladies! 
Thank you!
What a lovely relaxing, inspiring and fun weekend I shared with Janette, Olga, Cristie, Cathie, Debbie, Elizabeth, Chris and Dianne (hope the spellings are right!). The show and tell was fabulous...and so very inspiring...especially to me with the super jaded mojo! I feel like sitting and stitching...and then stitching some more! Some conversations made me almost wonder...am I in a movie????
Here are some gorgeous glimpses...
 look closely...how amazing is this broderie perse???
 a great challenge!
 paper piecing everywhere...
 a fabulous spot to sit...
 at this most beautiful homestead

 Thanks for letting me share your weekend, and thank you Janet for hosting our stay and feeding us so beautifully!

Well if those things don't help you find your mojo, I don't know what will. Love, love, love that broderie perse border.
