Picture of some of the great stitcher's that I met at the retreat. Robin, Kathy Carole, Candance, Mary, Denise, and Lynne. Ellen and  Barb are in the front of the picture, I met them last year at Inspired Needle, nice to see them again.

These were some of the pieces in the exchange.
The Reindeer ordiment is the one from me.

 Carole pictured below received mine adn I received hers. I picture is not very good. I love the ribbon work she did on it.

  So many great inspiring stitcher's all in one place. Nice meeting new friends and nice to see old friends too. Well I want to say keep stitching and take care.  Stay tuned for my retreat pieces.

Friday and it is raining

Had a wonderful time stitching at Ranae's house on Sunday. I was talking to her about me taking my first quilt class. I just wanted to share with all of you my first quilt. I just have to take it to the quilter now.

This is the project I started on Sunday. I did not get very far. Hopefully next week I can show some more progress on how it is coming.

Happy Sunday!!!

Finished the Bent Creek Christmas Row

Stitched on Flax linen and threads used were WDW and GA. Not sure what I am going to do with this piece, frame it, make a pillow, or a wall hanging.

This Delicate Daisies hardanger piece was stitch a bit ago but I like it so much I wanted to post it.
