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.

How cool that you got to meet Lavon! I do remember her!

Love your WIP -- now I have to go look to see what the finished design looks like.

I'm glad you all had a great time at the retreat. I wish I had been able to attend.
Beautiful start!

So pleased you had a great time at the retreat. The fairy looks great!

That retreat must have been something. Sorry I could not make it. Looking at next year. Will see how it works out.

Yes, I looked at the stitching models in STO group and there were some gorgeous ones. That will always inspire you when you see it IRL.

The pictures of Lavon are just as I imagined too.
