Awesome Stitchin' Weekend

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.

Ooh, I really like that butterfly design Christin! Hope you bring it to Kathy's this weekend. I'm sorry I missed the fun at Ann's. It looked like you all had a wonderful time.
