Stitching Retreat

Got back last weekend from the Stitching Bee Retreat. 
It has been a busy week.  
I did take last Monday off but, was very busy with all kinds of things.  
It was at Rowley's Bay Resort in Ellison Bay.
The rooms were a little dated but, overall pretty comfortable.  
We were really in our room to sleep.  
The fireplace in the front lobby was really beautiful.
Had to take a picture of the stack
This explains were it came from  
Some of the murals by the restaurant quaint and old.

It kind of reminded us of Holiday Inn

This miniature was in Grandma's Bakery.  
The desserts came from the bakery at dinner:  bars and cookies.  
The bakery was amazing.  
Breakfast and Dinner buffets were included.  
Let me tell you, the Pecan rolls were to die for!
Got a little picture inside the school house.
The little boy is sitting on a stool and has a dunce cap on his head.  
The view of the bay. 
We were on the Lake Michigan side of Door Peninsula.  
It was rainy all weekend.
Saturday more drizzly than rain.  
So we got out and did a little shopping in Sister Bay and had lunch there.  

We stopped at the Tannebaum shop in Sister Bay and the mums on the the way in were spectacular!
Cocktails before dinner

The Room we had for stitching was great.
There was a lot of room to move around.
Natural lighting during the day and in general good lighting.  
I didn't need to use my Ott Light.  

The view from my chair at our table. 

Since it was close to Halloween a prankster placed this cling on the toilet seat in the bathroom.  
It was pretty comical  
If you didn't know what it was, it looked real.  

I was working on the first part of Little House Needleworks Farmhouse Christmas.  
I'm now alternating between that and PS Santa's.  
It really was a wonderful weekend. 
It goes by way too fast.  
It is always good to see everyone.
I often head to the Bee and have Bob drop me off for a little free stitch and send him to Cabelas for an hour or two.  
I see some of the ladies there.

Hope you are having a good weekend 
It has been rainy, blustery and cold all day.  
I did all my errands and church yesterday, I didn't leave the house!

Have great week!
Keep on Stitching
