Stitching with friends

I am extremely lucky in that I have stitching buddies. 'Normal' people don't understand this passion/obsession for stitching and collecting stitching goodies but stitching buddies not only understand, but they help feed your addiction (either by gifting or just by making sure you don't pass up something you really 'need' when shopping in person or online) I'm heading out this morning to a 'stitching slumber party' with my three partners in crime. From past experience we will spend more time talking, laughing, going through each other's stash and eating than we will actually spend putting floss to fabric, but that really isn't the purpose - it is just a good excuse!
This week is really flying by. I usually take down all the holiday decor the day after Christmas (have been known to do it Christmas day!) but I didn't this year. I will get it down before I have to go back to work on the 2nd and that is good enough!
Have a great day!

Have a great time. I envy you that slumber party. My stitching friends and I are trying to put something like that together. Have done before, but has been a long time.

I know what you mean about "normal" people not understanding. I was with a friend on a trip one time and she told me I had a sick addiction. I told "yes, I know and I like it that way". Go for it.

I know what you mean, Junking friends are the only ones who really understand the wonder of good junk. Everyone else just gets a glossy look on their face. Have a great time.

Have a wonderful time and eat some chocolate for me! I do the same thing at least once or twice a year with my art buddies (there are 5 of us). We pick a neat place not too far away and spend 3-4 days painting, watching art videos, eating and having a blast. I look forward to it all year long! This spring we are going to Castroville in April. It's very old and quaint (so I hear) and there are billions of poppies to paint. We are staying in an old German B&B all five us us in one big suite. Can't wait! Vickie
