This year with each WIPocalypse we are to post a little something about ourselves and this month's topic is
Have you ever been to a stitch gathering such as
a retreat or a festival? If so, tell us about it!
Lucky me - I have been to a few retreats. There was a lady who sold Cross Stitch supplies out of her home in Kentucky and we became friends. She held two weekend retreats at her home and I was fortunate enough to go to both. I met a lot of my online friends not only from around the United States but also some from Canada and England! It was a wonderful time and I thoroughly enjoyed myself. Also this weekend I plan on attending a weekend get-together. in Arlington Heights, IL. They have been having this GTG for many years and this will be my third time attending. I am going to pick up one of my friends and we are only going to go up for the day on Saturday. I am sure we will have great day!!
Now for my stitchy progress ~
Today is Not Your Day
and I started
Progress as of 06/15/14
I started Stained Glass 4 different times! The first time the holes on the fabric were just to small to see with out my magnifier and I didn't feel like bothering with it...so I ripped it out and started again. That time I didn't like the color of the fabric with the thread...so I decided to start it again. The third time I was stitching the black lines above with the variegated floss and leaving the other spaces empty and I really did not like how it looked...so I ripped it out and started over for the fourth time. This time I think I am happy with how it looks. This is about a quarter of the first page and I am going to continue working on it this week and see how it looks so I can make a final decision.
Thanks for taking a peek at my stitching
see ya next week with another faithful update!
