This past weekend I spent a wonderful weekend away in Shipshewana Indiana at a retreat by "Inspired Needle". It is a wonderful weekend of lots of stitching and shopping. The weather was great and the decorations around the hotel were amazing. Here are some gourds that were outside of the entrance.
She did a great job of walking around and capturing what everyone was working on. I was late getting to the retreat on Friday and missed out on the ornament exchange. No problem. I loved what I made and now this is mine......
We got time on Saturday to do a bit of shopping around town. I happened to be in a home store and ran across an item that I thought would make a great holder for my stitching patterns and look nice sitting on my end table. I think it is a recipe or photo holder.
Here is what it looks like holding my pattern.
I did start a new project over the weekend. I am glad I purchased a new light that was stronger than the one I took. This is Fall's Gifts by Carriage House Samplings. I bought it several years ago while on vacation visitning local cross stitch stores. Look up this pattern, it is amazing.
I bought a really pretty magnet from Puffin & Company. I had to use it now for October. Isn't this cute.
Since I got home the only project that I have had a chance to work on is Mardi Gras by Laura Perin. I just love working on this one.
Finally, here is the progress update for the "ABC Girl Club". First up is Ellen:
Well, as for Terry or myself we have more work to do to finish up a letter. My pumpkin has not changed since last week and I know Terry is still trying to work on hers. Hopefully we will have better progress updates next month and get a chance to head off Ellen.
Happy Stitching New Blog Buddies.....
