It all started with a trip across the border. Yay, no line ups.
In a few hours I would be meeting Cathy from Acorn Hollow blog. We have been following each other's blogs for years and were finally going to meet. Excited is an understatement. And our terrific trio was completed with Donna from the blog "a little of this and a little of that". She is a talented artist and crafter and was our gracious host for the weekend.
Donna, Cathy, and Me outside our cottage. Here is Cathy unpacking in the kitchen
Yes, all the supplies are in order - chips, crackers, cheese, wine :). After lounging on the deck and gabbing for awhile we headed out for an amazing seafood dinner - clam chowder, lobster and scallops. Luckily we returned in time to catch this sunset. Gorgeous eh!
In the morning it was all about hooking. (Well, shopping for hooking stuff). We first hit Woolen Goods, a sweet little shop with an amazing collection of patterns. Guess I was too busy with all the eye candy to take any pictures. Maybe the other girls did?
Then it was off to Camp Wool. It's an eclectic shop in downtown Kennebunk with antiques mixed throughout.
I think we each picked up a few patterns here. I won't have to worry about running out of hooking ideas for awhile. I'm all stocked up. Then we stopped at W. Cushing & Company in Kennebunkport and had a great visit. If I ever decide to start to dye my own wool, I'm going back there. And they had some bolts of wool "on sale". Yay!
We also managed a visit to the Stonewall Kitchen shop and I picked up a few odds and ends
Now we were getting hungry after all that shopping so Donna took us somewhere "special" for lunch......a biker bar. No, not a wannabe yuppie biker bar - a real one.
See what's hanging from the rafters? Hundred and hundreds of bras. I'm happy to report we kept ours on. However there was some talk of visitors having to get up on a table and ride this large metal hog. Yeah, that wasn't happening!! Even when the rather large leather clad man behind us thought it was a necessity. Nope! Cathy and I did agree to stand beside it but that was the limit! Lol. I believe there is a picture.
The next day Cathy and I left and went to.........
Yes Virginia there is a Santa clause because this was just like Christmas! Walls and walls and walls of wool. Bolts, swatches, yardage .......heaven
I'll post my purchases in another post later.
It was all so much fun. Thanks to Cathy and Donna for making Girls Weekend so enjoyable. Last week I had 2 blog friends and now I have 2 friends who blog :).
