Finish #2 This one was started at the June retreat I went to. I love this whole Pumpkin Blossom line of smalls.
I picked up a large rectangular frame at last weeks EGA meeting for $5. It was amongst many donations to the guild from the family of one of our members that passed away. And in went my Blackbird Designs 2008 mystery sampler! I am ok with it not being a perfect fit(obviously :)
Now, the good news.
Remember the Crabapple Hill class I went to in July? Well, Meg Hawkey holds retreats at her home in central, southern WA state 4 times each year. And I was so very lucky to fill the final spot at her fall retreat in 2 weeks! Woo Hoo! I am so excited! Click HERE to see some photos of past retreats.
Then, I have my trip to AZ in Nov for 3 Merry Cox classes with Attic Needlework. Can't wait to finally see their store!
Then, there is another stitching retreat with EGA in November when I get back from AZ.
Then, I need to mail my Advent exchange that I am doing with Lorrie from Iowa. I am getting very close to being ready, Lorrie!
Then, in December I will be sworn in as treasurer for my local EGA guild for 2013-2014. Did I forget to mention that I still work too? lol
The rest of this year is going to go by so fast.
