I just wanted to share some pictures of my latest finishes. The bird looks a bit funny but you are supposed to fold it over and finish it to a bird shape. DS thought it was a fish and really, it looks like someone ran over that poor thing. I see a date with my sewing machine in my future.
Everything is well here, just a lot of things that are going on. Mostly fun so I'm happy.
Thank you for visiting and all your lovely comments!

Wonderful retreat!

It was so great to go to the STO retreat this weekend and meet up with my online stitching friends!

Some of these ladies I have known for 6-7 years and never met in real life so it was so neat to finally meet them. Lavon was just as I imagined her!

We worked on 3 great projects, I started Mar's from Midnight Stitchings Friendship Sampler and I got just a corner of Stephanie's from Nouveau Encore's purse done but with those colors and fabric I will certainly get to it.

I did get another start, Nora Corbett's Trick or Treat Fairy. I'm adding a scan of her!
We did quite a bit of stitching and I got really inspired by some of the shop models I saw. Some of those designs I would have never gotten until I saw the models.
