33 Days and Counting...

I'm so tired of winter and so ready for a vacation. I'm counting the days now until the Stitchville Retreat! It's called Spring Fling, I just hope that Spring remembers to show up.

Our guest designer this year will be Cynthia Zittel from The Drawn Thread. What a treat that will be.

Over the next few weeks I'm going to share with you some of pieces from The Drawn Thread that I have stitched over the years. A little trip down memory lane....

This was my first ever Drawn Thread design and one of the first pieces I ever stitched on linen.




Stay warm. Until next time.....

You Minnesotans have had such a rough winter … you deserve a spring themed retreat whether Mother Nature cooperates or not! I am looking forward to seeing your handwork pieces!

Cathy,

That was the first Drawn Thread piece I stitched too--back in '96!!! Always been a favorite of mine. I'm so jealous you're taking the class with Cynthia--definitely one of my favorite designers! Have fun and I'm looking forward to your "showcase" of her designs!

I agree, Spring needs to arrive! So sick of winter this year. I have also stitched the piece from your picture. I didn't realize it was the first from Drawn Thread.
I am sure the retreat will be wonderful.
