An Addition to my Stitching Group.

We had company today at my stitching group. Fellow blogger, Teresa from Teresa's Heartfelt Stitches, came to join us. She had spent some time doing 2 of the New England retreats with Belinda of Blue Ribbon Designs and Thea from Victoria Samplers in New Hampshire. When I heard that she had an extra day in the area, I invited her to join us. We had a great time. Teresa fit right in with the group. Those 4 hours just went by so quickly. We saw all her projects from the retreats. She is almost done with Belinda's project. Just beautiful. Hopefully she will be back in the future. Of course, I didn't take the picture until Cheryl and Nataly had left. They both could stay for just a short time. Teresa is in the orange shirt. Next to her is Emma and Phyllis and Nancy, in front is Ellen and Diane.
Before we left, Teresa gave me the cutest goody bag. Below is all the goodies in side. She made the tissue holder (so cute), candies from See's and the tastiest almonds called California Crunchies. Thanks again, Teresa!

On the stitching front, I did DT November (no pic) and it's being stretched. I started November by PS. Hope to get it finished by November. We will see.
Took this picture of Sammi this morning. I think she wants me to turn on the heat. I am going to be away from the computer for the next few days. I will miss all of your blogs. Thanks for all the great comments. I appreciate them all. Until next time....Happy Stitching! Deborah

What a great goodie bag, I love the little paper ghostie holding the lolipop, I may have to steal that idea for hallowe'en.
The November PS looks lovely.
Are you sure Sammi is in that picture? She's certainly snuggled herself well in

Deborah you are such a lucky duck to have a lovely group of like minded ladies to stitch with. Lovely progress on PS. Tell Sammi to come on Downunder, my long girls are starting to stare lovingly at the ceiling fan with quick glances at the air-con :@
