Stitch Night at Pat's

 A couple of weeks ago we got together at Pat's house for stitch night.  As always, it was totally fabulous.  I took some pics with my iPad.   Here is Pat's Jane Pattison sampler all finished.  oh. my.  It is gorgeous!!!

 Here is another beauty stitched by Pat.  This is Mary Edmonton.  I really need to get this one stitched and then I want to frame it exactly like Pat did.


 This is Pat's current progress on CHS Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow.  She is using DMC threads on 32 count fabric.  I, on the other hand, am still on the first block. 


 Here are some of my peeps....Karin, Teresa, Linda and Kellie are pictured.  You can also see the stitching hands of Patti and Pat on either side.  The quilt on the wall was done by Pat.  She quilts beautifully too.


 Brenda was working on Pink Sparrow by WTNT.  I also like to look at the things on the table beside the stitching in these pictures.  I see iPhones and Vera Bradley here too. 


 Kelllie was working on this older and totally great BBD design.  Note more Vera Bradley placed about.  Also, Pat's scissors with darling fob from WTNT.  In the background you can see the Homeland DVD....I have recently binge-watched the first two seasons and love that show!

 Above and below are two of Pat's stupendous finishes in beautiful frames!


 Above and below are some of Pat's smalls on a beautiful little quilt.  


 I was working on Midnight Ride that night.  And you can see my ever present can of Tab!

 Here is another table shot.  I am sure we are looking up more stitching stuff on an iPad!!!!

 Here is where I got that weekend on Midnight Ride.....


......and instead of sticking with that one I had to start My Heart's Design by BBD.  

It seems that lately there are so many great designs coming out that I am spinning out of control!!!  I guess that is a good problem to have!!!

Happy weekend to all!!!

You took such wonderful photos that I felt like I was looking over everyone's shoulder. what a fantastic stitch together. I enjoyed and loved every WIP being created. And Pat's framed Jane Pattison is gorgeous and so is Mary Edmonton. This is also a very dangerous post - now I want all those lovely charts. Thank you for sharing.
