A Weekend in Galena, Illinois

The Fox Chapter of ANG (American Needlepoint Guild) is holding their annual retreat in Galena IL.  
We are staying at the De Soto House Hotel, the oldest operating hotel in Illinois.  It is a charming old hotel with 55 rooms and lots of history.  
 We stitch in the ballroom, and at one point sleep for a few hours. 
I was too busy stitching to take any pictures of the stitching room and the wonderful stitching going on, but did love this very first finish of the weekend by Irene Mast.  I need to add this to my to-do mountain.....

I love visiting Galena. It's such a charming town. It looks like it was a great place for a stitching retreat!!
