What a wonderful weekend spent with fellow "cross stitch addicts"!!! We all testified to this after dinner on Saturday night. Here's a shot of some of our group:
It was the annual Super Bowl sale at Salty Yarns and a group of us have been meeting there for years. There was a lot of stitching, shopping, sharing and eating going on over the weekend. For the most part we stitch in our own apartments in small groups but cross paths in the shop, at Sara's reception Friday night and have a pot luck dinner Saturday night. There is always a delicious spread on Sunday while we wind down and check out our bags of goodies.
Of course some items somehow 'jumped' into my bag....
And take a gander at these adorable cookies that Sally made for us...almost..and I say almost...too cute to eat!
I did get some stitching done over the weekend and I can share one piece...the other is my exchange piece for the PSS retreat and I want to keep that secret until the recipient receives it in April. But here is the pre-stitch for one of my classes... Measure Twice and Stitch Once by Dames of the Needle.
And there were gifts....one a Christmas gift and one for Valentine's Day...such sweet goodies inside! Thanks Debbie!!!
I have been stitching at home and finished Rack Stack by Plum Street Samplers.
I've also done a bit more on Bee Contained by Betsy Morgan.
I've stumbled across a few nice freebie charts/SAL's I thought I'd share in case you haven't seen them. Our designers are so generous!
