A stitcher does not live by stitching alone, so we had Papa Murphy Take and Bake Pizza for our evening meal. Although, we all brought treats and other things to eat, we thought we also needed pizza. We soon found out that we had toooooooo much food. There will be a revision in this policy for our next retreat. No Pizza, just junk food. Here is Pizza cook Marcia overseeing the cooking of the pizza. Note cooked pizza in the background.
Janet is assisting Reina with one of the projects she provided for us to do. More about the projects later. They are working in the dining room of the B&B.
Now here are a couple of views of the bedroom I stayed in for about 4 1/2 hours. I was the last one to hit the hay of the group. It was about 2:20AM. Most made it to about 1. The entire house was exquisitely furnished with antique furniture, dishes, glassware and other knick knacks. At the head of the stairs was a beautiful antique needlework sampler. Several of us were fighting over who was going to take it home with us.
Well, it has taken me way too long to compose this, but I wanted to share with everyone a little of the fun that we had on our retreat/sleepover. Many of the gals were worried about what I would put in here. I have tried not to embarrass anyone and to keep it as clean as possible. Many of the things that happened do not translate well to a blank piece of paper. It goes back to the saying "you had to be there". The man owner came in and told us that "what happens in Dover, stays in Dover". So I tried to leave some of what happened just between us girls.
Everyone left before noon, already anticipating and planning our October retreat. I was worried that I had a home football game that weekend. Luck was on my side. They are out of town that weekend. Dover and the Sage Inn may never be the same. Thanks girls for a great overnight and we are getting geared up to do it all over again, but for 2 nights.
To all my readers, if you have made it this far, thanks for sticking through this all the way to the end. Your stopping by is always appreciated. Now I am off to stitch and run a few errands since I am hostess for my church ladies group tomorrow.
