Weekend in Amana

We had a great time this past weekend in Amana at the Farm Girl Gatherings Retreat. Got to visit with many old friends and made some new friends. Lots of good food and fun shopping.

The guest designer was Teresa Kogut and she designed three special pieces just for us. They came packaged in this wonderful box. (The box alone is a collector’s item!)

Here’s the sampler:

Here’s the needlebook front and back:

I don’t have a photo of the third small design.

This was my workspace. That little puppy dog pincushion was made out of vintage feed-sack fabric.

And what’s a weekend without a delicious piece of pie?

My Partner In Crime and I are on a road trip again. We left home on Thursday morning. Our first stop was the red barn in Iowa. Stopping for ice cream is mandatory. We reached our destination Thursday night! Stitching all weekend!
