New Business, Retreat Show & Share & More!

Life has stepped up it's busyness.
After 16+ years of selling on ebay, I have decided to offer my services to local stitching friends who have extra stash.  The response has been gratifying.  If interested, click on view my profile on the right sidebar and email me for details.
You can also follow my ebay auctions.  Go to the advance search link at the top of any ebay page, scroll down to Sellers, click on Only Show Items From and type in kiddlady in the box.  Then click on Search. It will  take you to my auctions.
I got back from a retreat last weekend.  Not yesterday, the weekend before.  It was a wonderful relaxing time.  And I got lots of stitching time :)
The most important part of the weekend was show and share.  And I wanted to be sure to share with you all the wonderful inspiration I saw-

The bottom green album is from SANQ.  Don't remember the issue number.

This is one of the Amy Mitten classes she taught when she was here in February for our Northwest Sampler tea.  This stitcher is speedy! 

Betsy Morgan's casket etui

I think this is Tracy at Ink Circles.

 I finished this tiny piece at the retreat-

Merry Cox's Needles for Williamsburg
Box was included in the kit.

I also finished Letter D for the Crabapple Hill Gardener's Alphabet quilt.

New Start-
Blackbird Designs
Pumpkin Blossom Needlecase
There are 3 total pieces and I finished the one on the left (top to needle page) and am nearly finished with the one on the right (inside scissor pocket).  The front of the needlecase is up next.
That's it for now.
Have a great week everyone!
