Tired stitcher's across the country make their way back home today (or try to, the San Antonio Airport is a mess of delays, mechanical malfunctions, and bad weather!) as the 2018 Mirabilia Minions retreat sadly comes to a close.
I was able to get more beading done on The Kiss, and even got to hear Nora muse on designing more men!
Since this is my oldest project, and arguably one of the most meaningful ones for me as I stitch the "tapestry of my Life" I asked Nora to sign my pattern. I will treasure it always! I guess I have to finish it now, hahaha!
We snuck away to see the sights, with a little stop at the Alamo! (if you squint really hard you can see me by the door, all long dark hair and even longer dress with red flowers)
My need for Coke in a Pepsi world became a personal mission and source of amusement for all!
We even stopped to take a ride down the River Walk! The weather was perfect and there was a soft breeze as we wove through the city on our electric boat!
Like all good things, this too must come to an end. I thankfully had Peony on me as I was stuck in the airplane on the tarmac for 3 hours (with the exception of a quick deplane and replane)! I faired far better than the Mother, whose flight was so delayed she missed her connection and must stay another night away from home!
The retreat was so inspirational, and I can now say the Mother and I have Mira Fever (as I work at an infectious disease research center now I feel that I am qualified to make this diagnosis!). Look for some finishes in the near future!
