Oh boy where in the world do I begin???
We had our retreat this past weekend for our
Sampler Guild so I will warn you this
is a picture heavy blog update
How about if I start here?
This is the view I had from the window
of the room I stayed in for the weekend.
It is absolutely gorgeous - and so peaceful.
No phones, No TV, No distractions.
Allowed for a wonderful weekend spent
with my stitching friends.
I arrived early and helped set up when the
participants arrived they were welcomed
to tables loaded with bottles of
water, flowers and bookmark with
the design from last years project.
and then the ladies began to arrive
and before you knew it 30 women
with all of the required stitching paraphernalia
were set up and ready to go.
as you can see we are very serious when it comes to
stitching, chatting, eating and buying.
Friday night included time to shop!
what retreat isn't complete
without the ability to buy stitching supplies?
Show and Tell
We have some very talented ladies in our group!
Saturday was project day
The wonderful ladies who put the retreat
together continually amaze us with
the creativity of the projects they come
up with for us to work on while there.
I am happy to report I was able to complete both!!!
Project Number 1
The boxes were already painted with photos of
last years project decoupaged to the lid.
We had to cover the inside with the fabric and
then we made the tomato and attached the bead
and ribbon to our scissors to make a fob.
The ladies had completed all the prep work
we had to finish the items off.
Project Number 2
Sorry this photo is so blurry.
I tried several times but my
camera would not cooperate.
We had our choice of two designs.
I selected the pumpkin because fall is
right around the corner and I thought
this would be cute to have for Halloween.
As I said this was a photo heavy post
but I hope you enjoyed it.
