So our group spent the day stitching, talking, laughing and eating, just like usual! All that was missing was Terrie (who has moved away, but will join us for our twice-a-year retreats), and shopping. But as someone pointed out, they could have shopped in my bountiful stash collection. And the readers of this blog would agree, having seen part of the colossal cross stitch compilation. All in all, I think our day went well. Well, except for the little incident involving the bad behavior of one of my cats. We won't go there.
Like always, everyone was stitching beautiful projects. I will have to get into the habit of taking pictures of their WIPs each month. There was a finish, which is always good news! Sheila completed her "Daily Life - Garden Daily" by SamSarah Design Studio.
I also had a finish, although not technically during the actual Stitch Day. Later in the evening I completed "La Fleur" by Sweetheart Tree. All I had left to do were a few stitches, a quick pressing, and then sewing the tiniest buttons I've ever seen onto the piece.
I'll be finishing this as a pin cushion. I have enough of those crushed walnut shells left since I had to buy a gigantic bag and only used them for one project. So stay tuned. It should be a cute finish.
