Ishw Weekend

I did get lots of stitching done, I cannot show you pictures because the battery in my camara is pooped out, so I will share the pics next blog.
I still have pictures from august Guild Retreat.
First up is the beautiful thread keeper from LaRue, she made these right in front of us all, she used some kind of epoxy that had no fumes, they are adorable, I was kind of jealous she had these and never dreamed I was going to get one, I love it LaRue.

Next up is the little box with a needle from Carol my roommate, she is from N.D. I did not expect to get such lovely gifts, thank-you Carol I love them both.

I had a wedding in the middle of my ISHW my Husbands Niece got married, she was a stunning bride, she was such a tomboy growing up and now a beautiful woman.

I did make it to Mass on saturday evening in the middle of the wedding only because visiting Aunts and Uncles wanted to go, otherwise we would have went  on sunday.
I also took a bracelet class on saturday morning, now I am not the best beader but this bracelet was my favorite of all the things I have beaded.

I love this bracelet I just need to add the fringe which will be done maybe next week.

I also wanted to show you the pattern and threads I won at Guild Retreat, I know I know I am jumping around alot but I am after all an airhead.
Lizzie Kate ABC Lessons, I would never have bought this but now that I have it I am in love with it, I plan on starting this next week.

Next I have to show you what came in the mail yesterday, from Conny from Holland, this is an exchange from the Blackbird Designs Exchange site, I love this adorable pillow, Conny did such a beautiful job her stitching is beautiful, I am a nut for trim and she did a beautiful job with this.
Thank-you Conny I love it, it will go on my shelf in my living room.

This coming thursday I am off on a week-end retreat in Wisconsin at the Ranch, I was there in march and loved it.
I have made a little something for the owner she is adorable and this reminds me of her, tell me what you think of this Tilda Angel.

I am off to the hottub for a half hour and then I need to watch the new show The Goldbergs.
Blessings to you all.
