Goodies and a Finish

 Hello friends,

This will be short and sweet. I just have to share the wonderful goodies I received from Myra(Gr8dame's Place) yesterday from winning her recent giveaway. I just adore them. I usually never win anything so it was extra exciting for me.
I also have a quick finish to show. This Lizzie Kate snowman has also been stitched for several years and now is finally finished. Honestly, I usually don;t wait  that long to finish things but I had a few things stitched for a different purpose. Now that that purpose is non-existent, I did something else with them. This I will put on my L & K wall in my stitching room. Even though it is a snowman, I would like to enjoy him all year long.

6 more days for the fabulous retreat. Ahhh! Stitching bliss!!!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

A few finishes and countdown

 Hello all,

Here is my finished  Hocus Pocus by Lizzie Kate. isn't it so cute. Silly me put it away with just the border to do. Maybe about 2 years ago. I just pulled it out and thought I must finish this and so I did. The little bat I got from my mom's stash which is very fitting since there are bat's on the backing fabric. I love how it turned out.

 This next group of stitching is a head start on some holiday stitching. One is a birthday gift, one is a Christmas gift and one is just because I wanted to stitch it. The I love stitching was a freebie from The Sampler Girl. The other 2 designs are my own.
Two weeks from tomorrow my mom and I are headed to Virginia Beach for the Dyeing to Stitch stitchers retreat. I cannot wait! Not only to see some friends but also to have fun stitching with fellow stitchers and designers and coming home with so many goodies I won't know what to do with. I designed this pincushion especially for the retreat. I made 3 of them. One for me, my mom, and a good friend that I met at the retreat 2 years ago. She will also be attending and can't wait to see her. I also had a few other goodies to put in the bag. It's so much fun! That's it for now.

Happy Stitching Y'all!!
