Cross Stitch Retreat in Colorado Springs

I left Arkansas, my DH, and my furbabies this morning so I can attend the ILCS Cross stitch retreat in Colorado Springs.  If you are scratching your head because you have never heard of this, let me explain.  I belong to a yahoo group, ILCS, and we get together for one 4 day weekend a year to stitch, visit and sight see!!!!    I think this is year 6 for us.....Each year we go somewhere different.  

I left at 11:30 am CST and arrived in Colorado Springs at 10:00 PM MST.   It was a very long trip and Kansas is a very, very long state.  I would like to say thank you to all my friends who chatted with me on the way.  I stopped at truck stop for gas and I found a hotel coupon book!!!  I found a coupon for Comfort Suites for $55 a night!!!!  My room is AWESOME...let me give you a tour:



Seating area with desk and sleeper sofa

Very nice Bathroom with lots of towels!!!

Microwave, fridge, safe, coffee maker and sink with a nightlight!!

Kingsize bed all to myself

TV and Closet...
 When I travel, I always manage to tangle my cords.  So below you see my Ipod, car charger and GPS charger.  Sigh......too many cords.

I am headed to bed.  Been a very long day!!!  Will post more updates later this weekend!

ooooh niiice!!! Have a fun weekend! Can't wait to hear about it when you get back! Nice tangle of cords there! I think that is why I like stitching so much, it helps me unplug a little, but then with floss you can run into a whole different kind of tangle! LOL
