Amana Part II

We had a very spacious stitching room; there were originally supposed to be 75 of us at this retreat and with Covid, only about 30 of us decided to still attend.

This was my stitching spot. Antibacterial hand wipes on the left and my face mask on the right!

Lots of show and tell. I’m sure you will recognize many of these pieces.

My contributions were pieces that I had stitched over the years all designed by Theresa Venette, our guest designer at this retreat. The Jenny Bean Sampler and pincushion on the left are two of my favorites. The framed mermaid piece on the right is from a class I took with Theresa at the Dyeing to Stitch retreat in 2011.

Come back tomorrow for photos of the ornament exchange!!

It looks like you had a wonderful time! Dave took me to Amana over Columbus Day weekend the year we moved into our house. I loved it there! The scenery is beautiful. Oh, to be as brave as you and head out on wonderful adventures!

Great pictures, Cathy! I spy with my little eye a chevron zippered case of sorts? Can you share a little bit about what it is and where you got it? Thanks!
