There was about 40-50 women there, stitching up a storm. There is always a couple who just hang out. There was one class this weekend that you could sign up for on Peyote beading. I wasn't interested in that. I just like to sit back and listen to everyone and stitch like nuts. Its great not to feel guilty about stitching. When I'm home, I love to stitch but, always figure there is something more I should be doing. I can just stitch.
My work requires a lot of talking. Often, by the time I get home, I have used all my words for the day and I really don't want to talk. I have to usually call my 86 y/o mom but, she does all the talking because she hasn't talked that much that day that she does all the talking.
I didn't take a whole lot of pictures since they wouldn't be that different than last year. I hung out with the same people who were so wonderful to me last year when I was a newbie.
Everyone gets a stitching project bag and it had some goodies. I forgot the little Prairie Schooler pattern and the candy. Well, I ate most of the candy over the weekend.
Some of my acquisitions.
Kendra had some really great cases. The general consensus was this would make a really great case for double pointed knitting needles. As you can guess I concurred.
So I worked on my Heart in Hands Thanksgiving Blessings: before
And after the weekend.
There is an acorn next to the chicken that there wasn't enough contrast between the cap and the acorn itself. I will be changing it.
I should be able to finish this before Thanksgiving. YeeHa!
Small world alert.
Last year I met Chris who has a sister in the same town I live in.
This year the sister, Cindy was at the retreat.
I had her son as a client when he had a hand injury and her in-laws live just a few yards from us next to my mother-in-law.
Hope you have had a great weekend and have a really great week.
I had an awesome weekend!
Keep on Stitching
