Good afternoon, all.
I’m back from a weekend in Ocean City, MD. It was chilly and really windy. There were 25 of us in the hotel conference room just stitching and talking, and (of course) buying new things at the Salty Yarns store. The drive took a long time coming home, though, the weather people said it was going to get bad, so a lot of people left around noon on Sunday. Believe it or not, it was snowing during the Kansas City baseball game on Saturday!
Let’s see……the Amy Mitten project. I just give up on this one. Was trying to make the ivy leaf to cover Adam’s parts and it looked like a piece of lacy. Not a solid leaf. So, I got frustrated, and wrapped it up and put it in the car. I am giving up on that thing. Ahh well…..
I purchased some beads at the Salty Yarn on Thursday and finished adding them to the “Winter Typography” piece on Friday. See the picture below. Two of the girls purchased the same pattern this weekend. I am adding the threads I used on this piece to the threads and fabric for the “Spring Typography” piece – it uses some of the same colors.
I completed the Bent Creek “Pink + White” piece – see below. Onward we go….
Here are a few photos of some of the scraps of fabrics I picked up. I’ll figure something out later on. We have a stash pile – I think I talked about this many months ago. Someone brought in scraps of fabric for the pile, and I ran my fingers through it.
New projects started: iStitch Designs “Sew a Brown Bunny”, and JBW Designs “Peace at Christmastide. Photos below.
What did I buy? Renee Greene “Summer 2017”. She has designed an Ocean City cross stitch piece every year for about 20 years. If you want to see all of her designs, go the Salty Yarns website.
I also bought 4 Faby Reilly Designs – “Magnolia Sampler”, “Violet Needlebook”, “Wild Rose Needlebook”, and “Peony Biscornu” Photos below.
I had a great time, but I was very tired when I got home. Bye for now. And I thought I figured out the photo orientation!
