I haven't posted too much lately as I was working on a birthday gift for my friend Joan. We just got home today from a very fun Birthday Stitching Retreat for her. It was absolutely wonderful! Here is the birthday girl her very self.
Joan, you were such a great sport--thanks!
Here is what I made for Joan.
I had asked Joan's daughter to "steal" a few things from her stash for me as I wanted to stitch something for her. I picked this hardanger piece as it had been quite awhile since I did hardanger and was excited. I actually taught hardanger some years back at one of the best LNS' that ever existed.
There were 7 of us at the retreat and we were all quite productive. I stitched the following 2 items and started another.
This is "Sew Peacock" by Carol @ iStitchaholic. Of course I had to do it in purple. It is Belle Soie Elegant Eggplant, stitch 1 over 2 on 40ct Antique White Linen.
Here is the 2nd thing I stitched--Block 3 of Christmas at Hawk Run Hollow. I am really enjoying this piece, 1 square a month.
It was a very fun weekend and I look forward to our next retreat!
Thanks to all of you for the wonderful comments on Hearts Left Behind and my Spring Exchange. I appreciate everyone who visits my blog.
Have a great week!
