And just like that, it was over!

I was lucky enough to spend the weekend at a stitching retreat with 58 of my closest friends!  This was our view as we stitched, and laughed, and talked, and shopped, and ate, and drank wine......but it was over too soon!  See you all again next year!

One More Model Stitching Finish

Finished up the last of the Sue Hillis models I have been asked to stitch.  This was isn't big, but lots of color changes, shading and backstitching.  It is very cute!

Plum Cake, Version #9

In my quest for the perfect plum cake, I have now baked version #9.  It is with Quark and oil dough.  It was good, but the crust was drier that I want.  I will go back to baking powder in the dough.  Version #8 is the favorite so far.  Plum season is almost over, so we have to wait until next year for Version #10.....

Model Stitching Finish

I had to put One Nation aside to do some model stitching for Sue Hillis.  Her charts are always a delight to stitch!  This is the pie cart from the Home for the Harvest booklet.  It has not yet been released, but look for it soon!
