I am home from a wonderful stitching retreat at Brentwood on the Beach, which is organized by The Thread & Eye stitching store in London, Ontario. I arrived at the resort on Thursday afternoon one day early. Some of us just had to get more stitching time. We were all happy to see each other again and to see what everyone was stitching on. There were some lovely projects. Some massive, some smaller but all were great.
We spent time stitching, swimming in a salt water pool and then some time in the hot tub. We would then quickly shower and then back to stitching. We were stayed up intil the wee hours of the morning and we were up early in the morning. We did not want to waste time sleeping. There was too much stitching to so.
My dear friend Irma arrived on Friday night, she had to work on Friday what a bummer. But when she arrived I had the wine nice and cold and we enjoyed the whole bottle and maybe a bit more. It was a great evening.
I am happy to say Evangeline now has a head of hair and her neck which is done on one over one thread is complete. Her face is not. My Lizzie Kate project is almost complete. I am happy with what is accomplished.
I am on holidays this week so hopefully I will get more stitching done. But I have some other things that need my attention so we will see what happens.
Today it is actually snowing in our neck of the woods, what a pleasant change, I love snow! We have had a very mild winter too bad Vancouver can't get some of this fluffy stuff!
