A Labour of Love weekend

This weekend was the last long weekend of the summer here in Canada.  That also meant that it was also Kathy's annual stitchy weekend.

Friday night my hubby dropped me off at Beatrice's around 7pm.  After a little incident with the car hubby went on his way home, and Beatrice and I went on our way to Kathy's.  When we arrived, Beth and Lynn had also arrived at Kathy's.

We had a nice little chat and got some stitching done.  Beatrice and I then headed back to her place where I crashed for the weekend.

Beatrice and I headed out and arrived at aproximately 10am.  I got my little "nest" all set up for the day and started to stitch.  I didn't get ANY pics of the weekend other than my stitching.... still can't believe it!!  Soon the 5 of us were joined by Fran, Anne, Nan, Judy, Barb, and Angie.  (hopefully I didn't leave anyone out)  So we stitched, we ate lots of food, and I got lots of education about all things that come with aging :)  Anne from K&N also payed a visit later on Saturday.

Here is the quilt square for Nan as of Saturday morning

Sunday started pretty much the same way, but less Beatrice, who went to church with her Mom.  Both Beatrice and her mom arrived later.  Judy and Claire also joined us for some stitching.
Sunday night after everyone but Kathy, Beatrice and I had left, I had a little happy dance... Yes I finished my quilt square!

On monday Beatrice and I headed back over to Kathy's.  We had a great visit and I worked on my Cirque des carreux.  Beatrice headed out around 12:30 and then hubby picked me up around 2pm.

All in all it was a really great weekend.  Unfortunately Dani is going through a family issue at the moment, and couldn't join us.  Christin also stayed behind for moral support.  Rebecca had a wedding on Saturday and a family reunion on Sunday, so couldn't join us either.  I missed the 3 of them but hope to see them soon... especially Dani, since I really want to give her a big hug...

Hope you all have a great stitch filled week!
