(I am having problems with blogger this week) I was very lucky to have taken a class by Thea of Victoria Sampler, what an exceptional Lady she is I loved the fact that she spent so much time with each table sitting down and learning about each and every one of us, she is so sweet.
The class was well worth the money I love the way my stand turned out I did add the ricrack around the pin cushion, this was not part of the class, (I bought the ricrack from Nancy Turner at Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe.
We were able to do as much prework as we liked before the retreat, I did all my stitching before hand, I did finish the final piece at home on monday.
This is such a beautiful piece, I am so excited I was able to go to this retreat Thank-you to my wonderful Husband he paid for this event.
Big kisses to you Mike.
The venue was grand at the Oak Ridge Retreat Hotel center in Chanhassen MN.
Deb and Deb from Stitchville USA were our Hostess of this event they are wonderful and really know how to put on a party, the givaways were wonderful I will post pictures later this week.
If you are ever able to take a class with Thea do so, we had Ladies from Canada, Texas, Iowa, North Carolina, South Carolina, Wisconsin and of course Minnesota, I am sure I did miss a state or two so Ladies please forgive me. The food was fantasic almost too hard to believe, I thought I was going to come home to learn I had gained a few pounds oh how lucky I was to see I had actually lost two pounds can you believe it. We had such a great group of Ladies, everyone was having so much fun meeting everyone and talking about and showing some of their work from home, it is so much fun to see what others are working on, I think that the stitchers in this world are the greatest group of people to belong to, we are sincere and of course loveable.
Happy Stitching to you all
I do have to go now please have a blessed day.
