There was just so many life changing events happening that my mind was not into blogging, but with the start of a new year I hope I’m back for good. Let’s see, where did I leave off last time, oh yeah! I was gearing up for my very first stitching retreat in Hershey PA. It was set up by a wonderful lady by the name of Fae Kuhn, who I met in a Facebook stitching group.
The main guest designers was Joan Elliott and yes , I actually got to meet her in person and she even recognized me first from my pictures on Facebook. I shared my version on her mystery SAL “Faces” with her.
Another wonderful lady by the name of Lori Laughlin (with Joan and I) organized the making of a quilt to thank Joan for her free sal (I had 2 squares in it) and it turned out great. The quilting was done by Tammy Horton and she really out did herself with the quilt.
The very talented Ursula Michael and Jean Farish were also there.
I attended a specialty stitches demonstration, a framing class and a finishing demonstration. I met stitchers from as far away as Washington State to Ireland there. Fae did a wonderful job, it was amazing and I am already for the next one.
I collected pictures of all my finishes for 2015 and placed them in a folder at the top of my page if you would like to view them there are over 69 designs stitched. I will be posting a new finishing folder for 2016, there are already two designs to place there. The first is Cross Stitch Lover by Ursula Michael
I did not make a new year’s resolution but I plan to complete all of my wips before starting any long more term (big) project. As you see I said big project because there will always be smalls that just have to be stitched right away. My wips are:
