Over the summer one of my best friends in the world moved from Illinois to Green Bay, WI. I was lucky enough to be able to drive up there this weekend and spend time with Lorie.
Now, usually when you go away to visit a friend you take a picture of you and your friend together....but no...we never thought to do that (possibly because we never felt like putting on real clothes and make-up!)...anyway, one of the most fun things we did was a visit to The Stitching Bee in Green Bay. What a great little cross-stitch shop this is!!!
There were tons of shop models!!! The washroom is totally dedicated to Halloween models! I am now officially obsessed with three of the charts in this post; the first being, 13 Owls!
Love this little acorn in this gorgeous little frame.
The woman who was working in the shop on Saturday was working on this Bent Creek beauty.
Above, is my #1 current obsession. I want to start this PS design ASAP!!!
A finished Village of Hawk Run Hollow! Stupendous! Also, see the little Autumn PS finish? I have that chart!! I can do that one too!
My third obsession is Tom Turkey by Notforgotten Farm. Love him!!!!
As you can see there is eye candy EVERYWHERE!!!! I was so overwhelmed I got giddy! This is definitely a shop to make a special trip for....and if you are near Green Bay; get yourself over there. The shop has a retreat in Door County which Lorie and I hope to go to next year!
That evening Lorie and I went through my stash. She found several projects that were about 20 stitches away from being finished. She told me to get busy right that instant! So, I have a finish!!! I would like to have this finished into a pin cushion to start a little collection.
All in all, we had a fabulous weekend full of laughing, crafting, brainstorming and wishing for lots more time together!!! Thanks Lorie!
