Getting Ready for the Stitching Retreat

I'm getting ready to go on a Stitching Retreat tomorrow.  It is sponsored by The Stitching Bee, one of my favorite stores.  It also is the closest one to me only a 100 miles a way.  The retreat is going to be at the Landmark Inn and Resort in Egg Harbor, WI, (Door County).  I know Kendra the owner of the store and a few other people a little.  I'm going on my own.  I tried to talk the stitching group into going but, no one was interested.  I am an adventurous type and will go anyway.

I have been getting things ready.  I really don't know what to expect.  I have been to other retreats where they provided projects but, I don't know what will happen at this one.  I am getting projects ready to take with me.  I have two ornaments from the JCS Ornament Issue:  Plum Street Samplers.  I substituted some colors because I didn't have the ones used.  The colors will go well and are really quite similar.  

 I also have the Little House Needleworks kitted up.  Again, I substituted some of the thread because of availability of my stash.  I think they will all work out well.
I have a Blackbird Design ready to go too.  There are also more Prairie School Acorns.   Here is the progress on the Pilgrims.  I have a little left on the man and then I do the lady.  
I am looking forward to the weekend.  I am nearly ready getting things at home done so when I do get home on Sunday, I don't have a lot to do.   I'm sure I will have some stories to blog about when I do get back.
