A Stitchy Visit

I've been horribly remiss in blogging about a little excursion I took to LaPorte, Indiana a couple of weeks ago, home of House of Stitches. I met up with fellow stitchers Carol (aka Lelia), Karol, Coni and her sister Chris (no blog) for a little stash shopping followed by a yummy lunch and loads of stitchy chat! It's such a treat to talk to folks who speak my language! I bet we could have chatted all the way 'til dinner and then some!

I'm sure you all know that nothing compares with doing your stash shopping in person, and seeing all those beautiful fabrics and fibers! Isn't it pure heaven? Here's a quick pic of some of the goodies I brought home with me:I swear, I need to learn to stitch faster! I want to do it all! Alas, it'll have to wait. I have a bathroom to clean, laundry to finish, and a funny bunny who needs to visit the vet. My evening, however, is completely free! Hooray!
