Last Saturday was Ann's annual open house at Knowledge and Needles. According to Ann, its the 11th one and it's getting bigger and better every year. We even had a gentleman stitcher join us (gasp).
It was an excellent day of stitching, chatting, eating and shopping.
Here is a small selection of the wonderful stitching. I was brain-dead and completely forgot that I should bring finished pieces.
Dani and I arrived Friday afternoon and I was able to check out the shop. I found a few things to spend my birthday money on:
I was able to find a piece of grey fabric for the wedding piece I was suppose to have done for June. For some reason finding/getting a piece was next to impossible. Really, I should have just talked to Ann.
Also check out the cool piece with the little snowflakes - no idea what I'm doing with that.
Last year at Ann's I found a piece of purple sparklie fabric and thought it would be neat to do this tribal butterfly from Sparklies. I had decided a couple of weeks ago to start it - I wanted a project that I might be able to finish in a reasonable amount of time. Worked on this on Saturday. Almost half done:
Seeing I was with Kathy she wanted to know where PL was and why I wasn't working on it. So Sunday I pulled it out and worked on it. See Kathy - progress
Thank you Ann for a wonderful day - I so enjoyed taking the day off and relaxing.
Off to work on my mile long to do list, just wish it would get shorter.
