It's almost here - Friday! After breakfast clean up, I'll pack of my Expedition and drive, all alone (heaven!), to Bellevue, near Seattle. The occasion? A meet up of the Northwest Victoria Sampler Cyberstitchers! My dearest friend, Connie, will be coming up from Olympia, Jo-Celle from Aberdeen, Nancy from Redmond, Kathryn from Surrey, B.C., and our designer, Thea from Victoria. Thea will be arriving on the Victoria Clipper ferry in the tomorrow evening and since I'll already be in town, I volunteered to pick her up at the pier and deliver her to the motel we'll be at for the weekend. Connie will be arriving about the same time Thea and I get back from the pier. We'll meet the others on Saturday at a nearby lns. The lns will be fun, but mostly we just wanted to get together, meet in person, and spend some time stitching and chatting. Too much fun, don't you think!
Well, the guys are walking their feet off over in Tokyo. June, I didn't ask Gary to buy me any fabric or other goodies. I think the main thing will be to bring home some Hello Kitty things for Kirsten! I have a couple of pics here of one of the gardens at the old Edo palace, and one of the hotel room DH is using. It's very basic. I'm not sure what they were planning to do today, but it will entail more walking I'm sure. I advised DH to begin taking some ibuprofen and continue taking it throughout the day, lol!
On Monday, if not before, I'll have a full report on my weekend. Hope all of you have something fun planned too!
