*** A Wonderful Visit ***

Our trip down to Virginia Beach
 was wonderful and we 
had so much fun!
I was honored to have been invited
and thoroughly enjoyed celebrating with
 Ann and Pat and their crew from 
It was the shop's 7th birthday.
x x x x x
They were so sweet to set up 
a table and display of the models
I'd brought down and some of th
models they had already stitched.

Check out this wall of floss and
silks.  Is this heaven!!!
x x x x x  
Here's the table with all the wonderful
goodies Ann baked. 
Woopie pies and cupcakes. Yum!

You may know my friend and
TDIPT sis, Ivonne
She was such a doll and
drove down with her
husband to visit.  It was our
first time meeting, even though
we've been friends for a long time now.
  
Here's one of the three of us.
Myself, Ivonne and Ann.
We're all smiles! 
It was so much fun chatting.
x x x x x   
Lots of people came by to help
celebrate and it was a busy day.
Here's Ann and Pat hard at work.
  Look at that wall of stitching.
Just amazing!

Thank you to everyone who
stopped by.
 It was so great to meet everyone.
 I just didn't want to say 
goodbye, but I take with 
me many great memories.
 x x x 
Thank you Ann and Pat
for making my visit so special
and for your friendship.
Hope to see you again soon!

Hi Nan!
Oh what fun to have met up with Ivonne. I bet the two of you were in hog heaven surrounded by the things that you both enjoy.
You both produce such lovely work!
