Friends and more friends.....(photo heavy...)

Many of us had a grand ole time at the French Hen in Manning SC yesterday....
Nothing better than food, fellowship and mingling with wonderful stitch friends!!

Nicole, Karen, Amy and myself had agreed to do a Prairie Schooler "Friendship" exchange back in June 2010...We all picked our favorites, made out a list to follow and took the last 12 months to stitch up wonderful squares to give back to each other....

Yesterday was the big reveal..........






Everyone's stitched pieces...wow!

This project is not really done though!!! Everyone will now stitch one for themselves..of course, Karen has already stitched her own piece!~ YGG... And THEN is when the creativity kicks in to see how everyone finishes off this project.............Can't wait to see how it all that turns out!!! Stay tuned....

Of course, there were many NC and SC stitchers attending the festivities yesterday.....



Frick and frack, cutting up~~~






could we be sisters or what????


Well.....Maybe tomorrow I will show you what I stitched on at the stitch-in....

Have a great Sunday everyone!!!!

How wonderful that you have such a great group of ladies to get together with and stitch! Stitching is great but stitching with friends is fantastic!!
I love all the PS designs you stitched for each other. I had never seen this particular PS chart. I imagine it's OOP which is why I've missed it.
