The stitchers are now beginning to arrive. In a few hours we'll gather for Meet and Greet, a time to renew acquaintances and also to stitch a bit. Tonight I'll be handing them their linen and charts for Fruit of the Vine so that those who want can mount their linen on scroll bars.
Below is a photo of Kathleen, one of the organizers of this retreat. Look at the marvelous sign the group had made.
The weather was quite lovely when I arrived, but the temperature has been steadily dropping during the day, and it is now quite blustery. Snow is expected to arrive overnight. Predictions vary dramatically from a couple of inches to a foot!! I think everyone here has had enough of the wintry weather--doesn't Mother Nature know that tomorrow is the first day of spring??
Look at the lovely flowers that they gave me. At least it will look like spring in my room even if it doesn't outside!
I hope to share some more photos over the weekend. I know that we all are going to have a wonderful time! In fact, we'll have "plenty" of good times and stitching--afterall, the theme for this year's retreat is "Plenty".
