How I Spent this past weekend....

...this time I was stitching!   A group of us gathered in Chesterton, Indiana for our annual stitching weekend.  It was a smaller group than usual, but still fun!

 Here I am, all comfy and stitching away! 
 Lynn, on the right, all the way from Canada, and Judy on the left from West Virginia.
 Barb on the right from Canada, and Cathy on the left from Michigan.
Mary on the left from Michigan, and Holly on the right from Illinois.  Holly was my room mate and proclaimed that I didn't snore! 

Thanks for a great weekend ladies!  Let's do it again soon!

April Progress, May Goals

Another month of stitching completed!  I did manage to finish 4 more of the crazy January starts,  which only leaves 5 (out of 28) and I am quite happy with that!  The five that are finished are larger pieces, so they will take some more time, but I am confident they will be finished by the end of the year.  To add some excitement to the mix, I decided to participate in Stitch 'May'nia....15 new starts, one each on the first 15 days of May......

How I Spent My Weekend

Last weekend I attended the annual national meeting of our German Club.  Luckily I didn't have to travel this year, it was located at our own facility.  I attend these meetings every year, and sit in the back and stitch my way through them.  This year they decided that the entire national board needed to sit in the front, where everyone could see us.  I am third from the left on the bottom row.  I did not get to stitch.......

Another Model Finished

Sue Hillis sent me a chart that she needed stitched yesterday, I had the perforated paper, so I just dug in and started stitching.  It doesn't look like a lot of stitching, but the frog came a visiting, and it took much longer than expected.  It is now at Sue's and she will be doing the finishing.  It will be a birdhouse, and will be available at Celebrations this coming weekend. 

And now back to my regularly scheduled stitching....
