Well of course I needed to start off with a cat canvas. Seriously, what were you thinking? This is called Garden Cat and is by Birds of a Feather. It is on my bucket list along with about 50something other canvases that I want to stitch!
But if I don’t have time to blog, I have even less time to stitch! I do thank everyone who has missed me…it really does the heart and soul good! Now let’s see if I remember how to do this? and so far so good.
So what have I been up to? let’s see I attended the Blue Bonnet Stitching Retreat in mid February and took from my “sistah” Meredith! It was strictly studio time for me and this is what we worked on.
The Girls with Attitude Collection by the collection. This one is called Raindrops and I wanted a background stitch. This is never what I would have thought of, never in a million years, but isn’t that why we take classes? I do love it and I need to get busy finishing it up!
Then it was back to the shop to get ready for the Needle Nook of La Jolla’s Getaway. It was a pretty fabulous 5-day event and we all had a great time! I really didn’t have any pictures in my laptop of the weekend right now, so I will save those pictures for another day.
I had a life altering/threatening event happen to me 2 days (or was it 3?) before the Getaway started. And it made me realize more and more that friends are the single most important part of your life. When it comes to friends, I am very, very rich.
Just 3 weeks later, Meredith came to our shop to teach! It was fabulous and we hope that we can get her back next year…she is a very busy lady you know!
This is what I was working on with Meredith. Cleocatra by Charlie Harper and we were loom-beading her necklace!
In between this all… it was a window change and I came up with a gardening theme. I need to come up with a new idea in the next few weeks or so. and and then it was opening day baseball!
Brenda was here twice and it is always something we look forward to!
and of course AlleyCat helping write stitch guides. Mathematically she could park her butt in a million and one spots… why here?
and this is the kids sleeping on top of me on the couch… chillin’ and hanging out with them is always a highlight of my day.
Can you guess where I am going? In 16 days…but who’s counting? I am headed to London with Needlepoint Now for a needlepoint trip. Can’t wait, can’t wait, can’t wait!
