The 2016 EGA Goldbar retreat is officially over. It was one of the best retreats I have been to. Lots of door prizes, opportunity baskets and silent auctions. (Of which I won none of the first two and two of the last.) There was a ton of great Trash to Treasure items. And I set up a "traveling store" of consignment items for sale.
One of the fun annual traditions is the handing out of Franz chocolate "goldbar" to any stitcher who finishes a project at the retreat. I'm happy to report that I finished 4 projects! Actually since my DH is the recipient of the goldbar candies, he was also happy that I finished four projects 😊
Finish #1 is a needlebook by Wooden Spool Designs. It finishes a set of smalls by Debbie Busby that I got in a class with her last year.
Finish #2 is by Stitches Through Time Christmas Tree ornament.
Finish #3 is Rhodes Stocking by Karen Garinger needlepoint mini-stocking.
Finish #4 is Magpie Pincushion by Shepherds Bush. One of the goodies from the Shepherds Bush retreat.
Some great show and share-
Yikes, this year has flown by! I hope to have another post before the end of the year.
