Too. Much. Fun!!


And just like that...it's over.  We added an extra day to the weekend and there still wasn't enough time for all the laughs, stitching and good natured fun.  Driving home across the Bay Bridge I always feel a little lull settle in.  I noticed that even our conversation seemed to lag.  And the motto of our weekend has always been..."What happens at St. Michaels, stays in St. Michaels".  I don't think our families would understand our silliness anyway, and I guess that's what makes the weekend so much fun for us.

The weekend started early with a free concert Astrid was able to snag tickets to...this was a CD release party Shine FM was throwing for Kristian Stanfill.  There were very few of us in attendance, so we got to meet Kristian, got our pictures with him and he autographed a free CD for us...what fun!!


 We left on Thursday this year to give ourselves a four day weekend!  There were fewer of us this year...and it was different but not necessarily in a bad way.  Lots of giggling, stitching, and eating going on.  



Here are some of the projects people were working on...









And Marsha made a few appearances...






But the scenery can't be beat...it wasn't too warm, nor too cold, and no rain so to speak.  Absolutely perfect!








I caught up on a couple of stitch-a-longs...this one from Au Point de Croix...



This one from Maryse...




And Quaker Diamonds, I was able to stitch another motif...



And I started Spread the Love of God again, this one is going to be raffled off to raise money for some church members to go on a missions trip to Kenya.  If anyone would like to participate in the raffle, please message.  I'll show a picture when it's finished and let you know the terms of the raffle.  Think about it and check back soon!!



I'll leave you with one of my favorite shots from the weekend...something to look at when I need to go to that inner peaceful place...and I know I'll get a smile on my face thinking of all the fun we had at St. Michaels...
