Catching Up!!

Hi everyone! I know its been awhile, but I've been busy. "Busy with what?", you say. Well.....
I got to go the the Inspired Needle stitching retreat with my friends.

Pictured above from left to right are Katrina, Karin, yours truly, Brenda, Jayne, and Laura.

                                            Here we are again. Barb's on the left.

You can see more photos from the retreat on Laura's Maude and Mozart blog.

Some of us are stitching Blackbird Designs Casting A Spell.  Here we are at my house painting the boxes that the stitched pieces will go in. Karin and Teresa were kind enough to provide all the supplies!
By the way, you can see some of Karin's stitched pieces for this project on Laura's latest blog post.
