I Was Starting to Panic!

Wonderful drawing at the Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe!  Check it out HERE

I'm getting ready for my stitching retreat and getting projects together.  
I knew I had picked up one of the new Homespun Elegance Christmas ornaments.
I looked all over:  my stitching basket by my chair, the chair in the sewing room, the project basket in the sewing room.
I knew I had bought it but couldn't find it.
Was it my imagination?
I was starting to panic.
I looked again on the chair and moved a picture frame.
I found it!
It calls for Indian Summer but, I am subbing Brick because I don't have enough Indian Summer.  
It will work just fine!
I really didn't know what to expect last year. 
There was a continental breakfast but, it wasn't worth the walk so I picked up things at the grocery store on my way home from work.  
I just need breakfast food since dinner is provided and its fun to go out for lunch
I need to do a little shopping on the way so I plan on Panera for lunch.
That also means some baked goods to take along. 
Got to have some chocolate!

I finished a freebie from With Thy Needle and Thread.
I saw this on another blog and fell in love with it.  
It tooks some wiggling with colors but, it turned out marvelous!
I started in Heart and Hand Thanksgiving Blessing
I will probably work on this this weekend.
I have other projects to take....more than I could do in a month!
I am really looking forward to this.  I have been working a lot.
By the time I get home at night I am pooped!

I may take some pictures of the weekend...don't know for sure.
I will bring my camera and there is always the cell phone.

Hope you have a great weekend. 
Thank you for the wonderful comments
