Good day to all my followers the ones that comment and the ones that just follow, I thank-you with all my heart.
I was on a wonderful retreat at the Belisle Ranch in Wisconsin from 9/24 to 9/27, the Ladies I was with were such a great group, I had the pleasure of meeting some new faces and what a joy they were, my tablemates were Mary from Minn. and Cathy from Iowa.
We had lots of giggles and great food.
Cathy and I spent an hour and a half in the indoor pool and fifteen minnutes in the hottub, then a shower and dinner that was sooooo good and cooked from scratch.
The owner her son and daughter-in-law are wonderful host and hostesses, I also had an hour long massage oboy oboy oboy it was totally awsome, Jeff does a wonderful job giving a message, I slept like a baby.
They have horses and cattle and a house cat that is such a lady she loves to be around and help with all our stitching.
I have to give a thank-you to Gloria for arranging this wonderful week-end.
Hello to Julie who I have not seen for almost two years, I sure miss her.
I also want to give a shout out to Jan wow what a ball of fire, she is a hoot I could spend another week-end with her she had me in stitches.
now onto some of the things I have been doing, first is a very small penny rug, I started this the retreat week-end and finished that same week-end. I love this little guy.
Next is another stitch I finished at retreat this is a Chessie and me The Gift Is Small, I love this pattern I just wanted to put it on a wooden box to carry some of my stitching tools, however I covered up a little of the frame around the edges of the fabric. I stained and finished the tool box myself.
Up next is a small stitch from Cherry Hill Stitchery, I did this on 32 count (I am not sure of the Fabric) just something from my stash, one over one, I wanted a small wol scissor fob and this will do the job.
This is something I started on my ISHW week-end and finished I love this owl I will finish it maybe this week-end into a needlebook this is from The Cats Whiskers What A hoot is the pattern.
I am not sure of the fabric this is another piece of fabric I found in my stash however it is 28 count.
I have started a new Chessie and me The Hallow-Wee House, I hope to have it finished this week-end.
This was kit I bought at Stitchville USA my fav stitch shop.
I plan on starting a few Homespun Elegance ornaments this week-end wish me luck.
I have been busy with alterations and some bead work which I will show next post, I have a bracelet class this saturday and a Church Festival to go to on sunday with GG my Mother, another chicken dinner and bingo oh yah.
Have a pleasant fall week.
