Holiday Trip

I've been planning a New Year Holiday trip for a couple of months now. I'm excited to be traveling on a train headed west. Of course I will take photos and post all about it when I return.  Here is a clue about where I am headed and what I plan to do.

Stitch Group Pizza Birthday Christmas Party

 My stitch group friends are the best! Sunday we met for the last time in 2021.  

First, some show and tell. 

This may become a bag or a cushion. 

This will be a golf bag tag, after twisted cording is added. 

This necklace, last month's project, is finished.

We worked on various projects first.

Next was pizza, cooked in the wood stove, then Japanese made carrot cake. This was the best birthday for cake - carrot cake twice.

And on top of all that, they gave me gifts!  They know me well - pizza with tabasco, carrot cake, panda, and stitching books.

My stitching friends are so good to me.
