I've been trying to sort out stuff from the closet in my craft room/office. Yesterday I unearthed this ornament I started stitching for a former colleague almost 20 years ago. It only took me an hour to finish the stitching. Today, I made it into an ornament.
We are getting quite excited about our upcoming stitching retreat. There have been emails back and forth among several of us: what we're bringing to stitch, eat, knit, demonstrate, etc. Tomorrow is my last day to get everything ready to go. The dining room table is covered in projects, project bags. lamps, needle cases, embroidery hoops, etc., etc. It's going to be a very fun weekend where we each get a room to ourselves and don't have to plan, prepare, serve, or clean up after meals.
