Floss Fight at The Sage Inn -- Part II

My original plans were to follow up the first installment of our adventures of our retreat at The Sage Inn right away with additional pictures and quotes. I guess life and stitching got in the way. Hope that you can remember the lst part, so it can transition into this follow up. Thanks to Jan and Reita for letting me use some of their photos.

First of all here is the stitched model of the design that Anita did especially for us at the retreat. I love the little add-ons on the frame. I think that almost everyone has finished this by now. Jan has actually stitched it twice. Once for herself and once for her friend Kathleen in Maine. Mine is waiting for framing.

Usually I do not allow my picture to be taken nor do I put it out here for all to see, but we had fun with this. Someone brought these cookies that come in a canister and are rolled into thin stick-like cookies and are filled with chocolate. I thought they looked like cigarettes, so here you see me acting as if I am smoking my cookie. It must have been late at night. No wait, it probably wasn't since everyone crapped out on me early. I am the night owl of the bunch.

Now this is a double treat because he you have another photo of me with my overdyed floss winnings from the CLR game. They all thought that I fixed the game, since I was the organizer and the one who stole the idea from other bloggers. I am showing off my 27 skeins of WDW and GAST. Mostly WDW. Goes right along with my nickname "Fiber Snob" tacked on me for my love of the Belle Soie silk. Last Monday at the meeting of the Sunflower Stitchers, a very small group (4 of us), I received two more nicknames. Fiber Whore and Silk Slut. Don't you like the names that my friends give me?

Wow, what do we have here? Oh, yes, it is Janet modeling the latest in lounging stitch wear. We do love to be comfy when we are stitching.

With all that stitching and wild games going on, an occasional massage is necessary. Here Reita is giving Reina a massage with a mini-massager and sometimes called a vibrator.

When I was reviewing the pictures to pick out the ones that I wanted to use, I discovered that we must have had a thing about taking pictures of someone else taking pictures. Now when I got to loading pictures I could only find the one of Linda taking pictures with her lime green camera. Linda is our resident lime green lover. She loves that color and has a lot of it in her wardrobe and several bags in that color too. Notice the color of her sweater. Yes, it's green too.
Now for what you have all been waiting for. The tidbits and quotes overheard during the retreat. Some you would have had to have been there to understand, others are just what you think they are and you will laugh too.

-- That makes me all tingly.

-- You would not want to do that on a full bladder.

-- How long does it go in for? Response--For as long as you can stand it.

-- Oh, look these are swirly-about Werther's Chocolates

-- Reina gave us all really cute tins with the Werther's Chocolates in them. We are really into the name calling and she was labeled as Reina Tin Tin.

-- Who's going to pull out first?

-- Is this fat enough?

-- Pull it out of the crack --- No thong thread--- No Butt Floss

-- I like mine big and hard

-- Oh, I have to put on my glasses to hear you. That would be our resident blond Jan

-- Hang on and I will wiggle it.

-- Be careful not to rub it raw

-- Yeah, Yeah, I want some silver balls.

-- We are not going to do your end until you are finished with it.

-- I will see how long my thing gets.

-- One will just hang.

-- Everyone gets a turn in the barrel

-- If I take the Beano with my Ibuprofen will I fart my head off?

-- Oh, I just dribbled between my legs.

-- Knit me a dickey

This just illustrates why I say we have so much fun at our retreats that it is almost illegal. Several in the group have gone to various camps and retreats near and far and the most often heard comment was this is way more fun, less expensive and we only had to travel a few miles instead of hundreds of miles. We want to try to do this at least once a year. Reina's only son is a senior, so we want to work around her schedule of senior activities. As of Monday night, all calendars have been cleared for the 3rd weekend of April. Janet is to call The Sage Inn to see if they will allow us to come back then. We might be too much for them.

Have some stitching progress over the last week or so, but will make that another post. This would be too long to include it here. Things have been rather hectic here and I will relate that in the stitching progress post maybe tomorrow. Hopefully, you all won't be to shocked to find posts from me on back-to-back days. Hope you enjoyed hearing and see more about our little retreat. Thanks for stopping by. The dog has started not going to bed without me. She laying by me waiting for me to head off to bed. Guess I better start that way.

Happy Stitching!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
