Saturday, Ann of Knowledge and Needles held an open house! Ann and Barb counted - 45 stitchers stopped in over the course of the day. Many brought their work to display!
Check this out!!!
It was a wonderful, awe inspiring day. We all contribute food and have a wonderful lunch and the leftovers are enough for supper. We started at noon and went till about 11 p.m. Ann had stitchers in her sunroom, her dining room, her living room and even a group in the garage. We talked and stitched, compared WIP's and enabled each other! Thanks to Beatrice letting me use her photos of the stitched pieces. She has others on her blogs as I am sure will Dani and Ann at some point.
You should have seen the shop! You couldn't move for stitchers. I found the most wonderful fabric. It will make an amazing background for another Mirabilia RR.
I also received the most wonderful birthday gift from Dani and Christin - a pair of Dovo scissors. Aren't they beautiful.
And I stitched and have stitched the past several days. I am obsessed. I want her finished. And here she is this morning - Royal Holiday.
I will warn you - blogging may be hit and miss for a bit. We have company coming from Denver tomorrow for several days and then the rush is on to get the rest of the boxes packed to move. Will do what I can.
Until then, keep those stitches crossed!
Edited to ADD - one of my stitching friends is almost finished a piece and has run out of thread. She needs about 12 inches of Waterlilies - Antique Pewter. If anyone can help please email me.
