Ornament sal + update

On the weekend I managed to stitch my ornament for June

I decided to keep going with the dragon dreams series. Here is day 6






Speaking of the weekend I went on a little adventure starting Thursday night.
I drove over 900 kms to Arlington Heights, which is a 'burb of Chicago.
Why you ask? Well there was a stitching retreat that I was invited to!

The drive was long, but SO worth it! I don't think I have laughed so hard in my life!!!
Here are a few pics from the weekend

Packed and ready to leave at 6am



Waiting to enter the US



Some amazing finishes at The Rocking Horse



My "nest" for the weekend



One day at lunch - amazing steakhouse!



Most of us went to a steak dinner Saturday night - Emily and I had girly Martinis



After some shopping - trying to get it all in the car!



Sheldon happy I brought him home cherry coke zero!



I am hoping I can get the time off work again and go next year!
