This is some of the things we did at the Blackbird Designs retreat in April put on by Stitchville USA.
We had so much fun with Deb and Deb these ladies really know how to host an event.
The mother of pearl thread keeper was one of the freebies for the week-end.
Alma and Barb are a real treat to meet.
They came with many and I mean many ideas to use their patterns on and in.
We were able to sand stain and wax a sectioned box and fill it with goodies. The Tulip House was oneof the patterns we recieved along with the threads and material to finish the projects you see. The boxes are available through Hobby Lobby.
We stitched a pin keeper pictures of both the box and the pin keeper are posted.
If you can please take a class with Barb and Alma, they were just a hoot.
There were about 32 ladies and what a great group of ladies they were, so full of ideas and fun some came from Ill. Iowa Wisc. and as far away as Maine.
I look forward to another retreat with Stitchville USA.
Thank-you to both Debs.
