Before I forget, welcome and thank you to all my followers, new and old. I do appreciate you sticking around with me.
So, today is a full moon so, it's time for my update. Measi at Measi's Musings host WIPocalypse. If you click on the dragon, you should be taken to the information site.
This month's question is: Have you ever been to a stitching retreat or festival? Yes, I have. I was fortunate to live less than an hour from the Celebration of Needleworks sites, Manchester, first and later Nashua, when I lived in New Hampshire. I went to every Celebration from 1993 until I moved in 2007. Because I lived so close, I didn't spend the night, but I took lots of classes and did make my contribution to the attending needlework designers and vendors. I also met a number of people that I had previously only "talked" to on the RCTN group and later Yuku groups and blogs. A retreat is on my wish list - I know of three or four that are within a few hours of my home - so hopefully in the near future I will make one of them.
Onto the stitching... I have three projects left from my original list: Secret Victorian Garden, Santa's Magic and Elegant Doily.
You can see my progress on Elegant Doily in my previous post. I'm still eyeletting and will be for the foreseeable future.
Chatelaine's Secret Victorian Garden went from here:
And Mirabilia's Santa's Magic went from here:
Santa will be on the frame through tomorrow. Lizzie*Kate's Holly and Hearts goes on the frame on Sunday for its week in the rotation.
