Our annual retreat was this past Tuesday through today at my friend, Joan's house. Our theme was flamingos.
The first day, Tuesday we did the finishing on our group project. We stitched a square for each of us from the LHN Diary Series.
This is our friend, Chris, who participates in our group project and comes the first day for the finishing.
We always exchange goodies which is great fun and this year was no different. Here is the goodies that I gave everyone. I also gave everyone a flamingo pin made with Swavorski crystals. I had hung mine in my van so it didn't make the picture.
This was from Joan...
These were from Lori...
These were from Jackie...
And from Cathy...
Cathy was only able to come for a little while on Thursday night, Friday morning before work and after work. She donned the flamingo hat after a day at work.
Here are the projects that I worked on. First, I got caught up on my Hardanger Stitch-a-long.
Then I stitched up this patriotic piece by Sam Sarah.
I then started "Peacock Pinkeep" by Blackbird Design. I did almost all of the stitching at retreat. When I got home today and finished the stitching and then began the finishing process. I need to get some chenille trim yet so I am only showing the top of this piece.
Here are a couple of the special treats we had. Cake from Sam's club...got to love that! And, virgin Pina Colada's...YUMMY!
My kitty missed me so much and once I got settled in back home, he could finally relax. He was out like a light!
Well that's it. Another retreat come and gone. Lots of stitching and too much food!
Thanks for visiting and happy stitching!
