The Girl Get Away

"Excited" is a little mild to describe how Anna and I felt when we left the guys to watch football while we headed to Florence, Al to take an Alabama Chanin workshop.  Not only is Anna an avid "Chanin stitcher" having made several projects from Natalie Chanin's books, but I had the opportunity to learn something new and be the student and not the teacher!

We were able to meet other stitchers, enjoyed a relaxing afternoon of stitching, and loved getting a tour of the studio and examining the fabrics and creations in person.  It really was hard to leave and head back home, but there was a group of hungry guys watching football and waiting for dinner.

Home was only an hour away, so as we enjoyed the drive through the country while Anna stitched on her project, we had time to talk of all we had seen and plan new projects.  An easy dinner was prepared, I had time to play with Christian, and was finally able to catch Rex between ballgames and head back home. 

I woke up this morning feeling refreshed and energized!  Apparently a change of scenery was exactly what I needed!  :)
