Lots Going on.

I just don't know where the time goes. Went to a retreat, did lots of stitching and added to my stash. I went to the Dying to Stitch retreat in Virginia beach earlier this month. I went with mu friends, Nataly and Ellen. I drove, so I thought I would stop at some of my favorite shops on the way. We ran into a lot of traffic so I had to cut one shop out. We did make it In Stitches in Virginia. I just love this store. I only get there once a year or so but they always remember my name.
We were invited to stitch group that night. We were too tired to stitch but had a lovely time talking to the girls. I was so pleased to meet Glenna. Her blog is Eye of the Needle. Please check it out. She also does the store blog, as well. I bought many pieces of fabric, floss and a few charts. If you are in the area (Arlington, VA) you really need to stop by. We then traveled on to the retreat. I had the best time. We took Paulette's class and Jeanette's class. Both were great pieces and both classes were so much fun. If you go to Plum Streets blog and Faye's blog you will see all the pictures. They took much better pic's than I did. The weather was hot and humid. We walked the board walk. Found great places to eat. Hopefully, they will hold another one in 2 years!
The view from our roon. On to the stitching part of the blog. I have been busy. I finished Bittersweet September by BBD. This is a Ladies Prim Club design.
So cute. I finished and had framed Noel by WTN&T.
She is large and beautiful. I love the red house. Here is a close up of the frame.
This is Thankful for thee by PPS. Paulette previewed 4 new designs at the retreat. Of course, I had to get all four. I love anything with turkeys. Here is a closeup of the frame.
I just love this molding.
This is Paper Snowflakes by WTN&T. I love this design. The borders are beautiful and you just have to love a large snow woman who is so well dressed. I will end with some ornaments that I did last year. I sent them off to Vonna for finishing.
I wanted them all finished flat with lots of felt and great bows. Aren't they pretty. Vonna did a great job. Thanks so much! I will be back sooner. Thank you all for visiting and leaving all those wonderful comments. Until next time ...... Happy Stitching! Deborah
