Last weekend was the Inspired Needle retreat in Shipshewana, Indiana. There were approximately 55 of us and we had such a good time. Talking, laughing, shopping and even a little stitching! I was finally able to meet Vonna and what a dear, SWEET person she is. Our whole group had a great time getting to know her! Of course there was stash shopping and here is some of what came home with me along with a new large Vera bag to put all my current projects in.
I've been working on Winter Wonderland by Blackbird Designs. 1 over 2 on 40ct with overdyed threads.
And here is Jane Pattison by Shakespeare's Peddler. I am doing this on 32ct Vintage Navy Bean with the Simply Wool threads. The wools are so much fun to stitch with and so different from cotton or silk - you really need to try them!!!. Jane has truly captured my attention.

This afternoon is perfect for stitching and watching football. Go Bears! I have a pork roast in the crock pot for dinner so I hope to enjoy lots of time for stitching!
As always, thank you so much for visiting with me today. Your comments always make me smile.
Until next time.....
