Thank you to all who left comments on my last blog post and a huge thanks to Adornit for offering up their selection of Chamberry prints as a great prize! I have a winner…but first a few updates! (Would you really read on if I blew the surprise right now?)
It’s been busy…heck, it’s always busy! Last weekend I was able to sneak away for a short time to attend my annual retreat in Gretna NE. It’s not a fancy place, but when I started going 17 years ago – it was heaven on earth. Time away from all the home activities – few even had cell phones in those days. My husband always knows – the 3rd weekend in March come heck or high water, I was Gretna bound. The women that I meet up with every year are wonderful & supportive & it’s been so much fun to watch our families grow through the years.
I stopped through Omaha on the way home (I did have to leave a little early this year to go watch Chris play in a tennis meet) & dropped off some models at For The Love of Stitching…an awesome little shop. Judi was my very first “auto” customer & I was happy to lend her some models for awhile. Stop in if you are in the neighborhood…she does mail order too!
I’ve been catching up on some finishing work & working on a few retreat pieces. Like everyone else, I’m hoping Mother Nature decides that we have had enough winter and are ready for Spring.
Here is a sneak peak of a newly completed project!
This is a current WIP! Look familiar? The bag that I have been using for a model of “Love My Stitching” was stitched by Karen (sewmuch2luv) and I think she would probably like it back! I haven’t stitched on evenweave for awhile, I forgot how much fun it is!
That’s what’s new with me. The winner of the Adornit fabric bundle and chartpack of Gather Friends Close is Darla! I will be emailing you for your address! Contests are fun – keep following for more!
Have a wonderful day,
