Here is a glimpse of my favorite DMC blues.
Attempt at artful shots of threads.
This piece of fabric welcoming us to Amish country was in a very large quilting hoop. I think putting a beautiful piece of fabric of your own choosing in a hoop like this would be a cool decorative touch.
We had a really great time looking through each other's stitching bags. This WIP is the beautiful Elizabeth Sheffield sampler which is being stitched by Katrina.
Here is my current obsession!! This is the Jane Pattison sampler which was being stitched by both Pat and Brenda. They are using wool threads and I really want to stitch this. I am going to ask my husband to get it for me for Christmas....if I can wait that long!!! So gorgeous!
Cathy gave each of us this totally great needle minder with her shop logo. Love it!!!
We met a new friend at the retreat. Diane came from Seneca, IL and brought some wonderful projects and show and tell. She completed this stunning Jardin Prive piece.
She totally changed the colorway.....and it is gorgeous!
Karin took ownership of her stitched and newly framed Halloween sampler from Lizzie Kate. I love this!!! I should have stitched it with her!!!! So cool!
Here is Nancy's finish of the Bent Creek project from several posts ago. Please note that she put a family member's name on each stocking!!!! Fabulous!!
Sorry about the blurry shot of Nancy. I have my camera set for close-up and then I can't get it out of that mode when I take regular pictures. I need a tutorial badly.
That wraps up our first day! More to come!
