Retreats and Friends...

Hey Yal!

It's only 3 weeks into October and I'm pooped!  I'm working my way through Sale orders and Fabric of the Month as fast as I can.  We had a water main break and the water is turned off.  That's the only reason I'm not elbow deep in dye.

I had a busy few weeks.  I attended a retreat in Cincinatti and one in Hershey, PA.  I got the meet the lovely Joan Elliot and Ursula Micheal in Hershey.

I had a blast!  Loved hanging out with my friends for a weekend,  I came home to two lovely packages.  One was a huge package of threads I ordered from Rainbow Stitchery.

And the second was my year long secret stitcher gift.

I can't wait to start the Blackbird Designs Sampler!  So cute!  And the pinata was a creative touch!

I have a mini-finish!  I'm calling it a mini-finish because it is the first part of the Plum Street Samplers Sunday SAL 12 Days of Christmas

I'm stitching it on London Fog from Under the Sea Fabrics with Cranberry, Collard Greens, Her Crown, and Old Crow Belle Soie and Petite Treasure Braid 01.  Love it so far!  The SAL is free just click on the link above!

And finally, Salem Remembered.  I'm making pretty quick work of this one!

I've actually added a couple more names since this picture and only have 3 names to go!  Then onto the bottom banner, border, and smaller motifs.

FYI: I started a Instagram account for Under the Sea Fabrics.  To follow Click here.
