The group obliged and let me take pictures of them this morning...
Vicki, Dorothy, Virginia, and Karen:
Pam, Maryanne, Mary, Joyce:
Chris, Yours Truly, and Judy:
We always have a good time, lots of laughs, and of course, we do a fair amount of stash enhancing! If any of you are reading this, thanks for being such a fun group to stitch with!
While there today, I nearly finished a project that has been languishing in my WIP pile for quite a long time. After I arrived home, I put in the final over one stitches and voila it is finished!
Birds of a Feather Mystery Sampler
With Thy Needle and Thread
35ct WDW Confederate Gray
Okay...Have you ever done this? Danced like a crazy fool celebrating a needlework finish only to realize later that you weren't really finished? I seem to be making a habit of this. I did it once last year when I finished (or shall I say "thought I finished") Jenny Bean's Halloween Sampler, only to realize that I had a little bit more to stitch. Boy, did I look like a crazy fool dancing around the hotel room in Virginia beach that night. Well, it happened to me again today. I took "I Sigh Not for Beauty" to my framer and had made my frame selection and was ready to make my purchase and all of sudden a little voice in my head said, "There are supposed to be satin stitches in that sawtooth border!"
I placed the order for my frame and said I'd be back in a few days with the finished piece. Boy did I ever feel silly. Better to discover it now rather than later. Oh my, what would my hero (the designer) Ruth Ann Russell have thought had I forgot to put in the satin stitches? Guess what I will be doing tonight?
Gotta run...but have to shout out to my Chicago friends who were stitching with Linda from Chessie and Me and Lori from La D Da today. Hope y'all had fun!
Thanks for stopping by!
