Results from this past weekend

I wasn't too much of a hermit this past weekend, but I did get to stitch and have a finish! 

Friday evening was a Children's Folk Dance Group rehearsal, and by the time I done dealing with all of the little darlings and got home, I was too tired to stitch.

Saturday, I went to the Des Plaines Library (at the crack of 10) for our monthly stitching get together.  I brought along this canvas piece that was barely started and stitched and stitched until I got too cold at about 3:30 (besides, my wrist was getting sore) and then I went home. 

After a few chores around the house and some Tylenol, I went back to stitching and even found some beads that would work and was able to finish it off before I went to bed.  I will do the companion piece another time, perhaps even next week.

Sunday I met Marguerite for breakfast and then we visited the Kane County IL fair so see the needlework that was entered.  What a disappointment!  We got their as the fair opened at noon, so we were able to park up close to the entrance.  There were no maps to tell us which building was which, and we found the textile entries by accident, the building wasn't even marked.  There were 3 (yes, three) counted cross stitch entries, one or two stamped embroidery entries and a few machine embroidery entries.  This fair doesn't give a Divisional Champion ribbon or have a Grand Champion, so I guess no one bothers entering.  Security was non-existent, so I would be afraid to enter there.  Oh well, at least we had breakfast and a nice visit!
