One week ago today~... And a picture walk~

Greetings friends and stitchers!

Well.... It's been a week and I'm still giddy!! Last weekends trip to Notforgotten Farm will be hard to top..... I'm still reeling from all the excitement~

First off, I got to meet, AND hang out with, the talented Nan Lewis of Threadwork Primitives on Friday night..... We all stayed at the same Lynchburg VA motel so we could meet and greet before the long awaited Saturday trip out to Lori's beautiful farm..... Sharing in all the excitement were Theresa Meloon of Dulaney Woods Primitives, Mimi Martz, Michele Blanco and Pat Simon....
image
At the farm.... Theresa, Nan, Faye, Pat, Michelle & Mimi... It was a glorious Fall day... Perfect for this large outside event~ If you've never been, you really should pencil it on your 2015 to-do list~ well worth the travel!


I'm not real sure my feet were even touching the ground at this point as I met Lori Brechlin for the very first time......
image


Much less, here......
image
And, yes, she is as personable and heart warming as she appears... A true people person who mingled freely among the guests and shared ideas openly about our common love of needle art~

image
Here we all are...standing in that famed front porch of her shop... That very house you often see on her blog...where she's inspired and often works peacefully in the wee hours of the day.... A VERY inspirational space~
...Michelle Blanco, Faye Riggsbee, Theresa Meloon, Nan Lewis, Pat Simon, Lori Brechlin & Mimi Martz

I won't share photos of my stash but trust me, wools, punchneedle supplies, patterns, charts...on and on... Came home with me..... Some of us even got a punchneedle needle lesson from Theresa Meloon back at the motel Sat. Night~ thank you Nan for the practice design and, Theresa, for the patience and guidance of the punchneedle lesson.... Needless to say, I'm hooked! More to come on that soon.....

Back home in the craftroom, I've been busy..... Project rolls are heading out... If you are still waiting for yours, you'll be receiving yours in the next couple weeks.... In the meantime, I'd like to share photos of recent finishes..... YOUR stitches~~~MY finishing ideas..... Enjoy!
