Road Trip ~ Stitch Camp 2015

My friends and I returned home earlier this week from our trip to Country Sampler in Spring Green Wisconsin.  It was a long drive, but well worth it.

On the 1st day of camp we all met in the schoolroom where a yummy breakfast and our agenda for the week awaited.    



The schoolroom is just a lovely place to work 


and we all got busy on the project at hand.


Our class project was this velvet lined metal cash box and accessories to go with it.


Our teacher for the event was Stacy Nash.


Here are my box and heart scissor holder, along with the cute name badge necklace we all got. 


Got these accomplished the first day. We were a very focused table...lol
Some of my table mates.  Pat and Barbara.  


My friends and I had to get a pic with Patti from http://windingvine.blogspot.com/
We have been online friends for years, so It was really nice to finally meet her in person.

It was such a treat to be able to share this event with two of my favorite buddies Pat and Tee and it was great fun to meeting everyone there.  Lots of new friendships were formed!

 Here are some pics of our classmates.





Jeanne and the shop gals just made everything so special every day! Thank you!
Pat and I stayed upstairs in the apt. and we had such a great time with our roomies, Pam, Jean, Carol and Sarah.  Thanks for such a wonderful welcome, your friendship, and the wine, stitching and chatting.
A special thank you to Pam for having coffee ready every morning.....I owe you gf.
