Well, a few friends, Michele, Ruth, Chris and Sharon and I decided to have a little get together here in Arizona. We spent a couple days here in the city and then ventured (it was an adventure) up north just south of Flagstaff to stay at a friends cabin for the weekend.
The girls all came into Phoenix on Wednesday April 1st. I met them at the hotel and we came to my house for dinner and dessert. There was bbq pulled pork sandwiches, potato salad and baked beans and Aunt Cathy made a delicious dessert. We hung around with my family for a little while then ventured back to the hotel for more chatting, laughing and some stitching.
Thursday, we met up for breakfast then went to one of my LNS's here in the valley, The Attic in Mesa. We were hoping to get to the Needler's Nest too, but didn't get to that side of town until it was too late, next time. Here are some pics of the girls shopping at The Attic. We spent a couple hours there then headed to In & Out for burgers.
Ruthann named us the GCGC (Grand Canyon Girls Club). LOL We did make a trip to the Grand Canyon but pics will be in another post. I was so excited the girls were coming here that i actually designed a small piece for us all to stitch in honor of our little retreat. I used my coffee dyed fabric and belle soie and kitted it up for the girls. Thinking of stealing Sharon's idea of framing the piece with our pic from the GC. hmmmmmmmmm
Well here are some of the pics promised above from shopping at the Attic. Notice Chris at the counter with her credit card, it's smoking. LOL
