One of the members, Jane B., gifted us with a leather, corked backed, coaster to insert a 3" x 3" piece of needlepoint (she gave us the canvas to stitch our own design). I chose the navy blue color thinking it would work nice with the (Oliver Twist) teal, navy, green threads I brought with me from my stash. I found a free, easy to stitch square on the Rainbow Gallery website called Mystical Stairs and have already completed one-quarter of the design. Debbie F. also found an RG bargello design which looks like hearts, and was able to finish her project. It looks great in her red coaster.

But with the daylight came beautiful views of the Atlantic. Still lots of wind, but the day turned out balmy and sunny.
Thank you Barbara E. for organizing this wonderful retreat. Looking forward to attending next year.
