Honestly, I am SO excited about the PALS retreat this year.....I can hardly wait for Thursday to get here!! Seeing old friends, making lots of new friends, stitching, LAUGHING, eating....This year will have a large attendance also.....Get ready.....Lots of photos will be coming up on blogger by lots of stitchers.....I'm so excited!!
I have been busy in the craft room sewing up many an exchange item and gift for many customers.... Some for the PALS retreat, some for Christmas....Promises were made to hold off on the photos..so... Trust me, you stitchers have been super busy!!! Love it!!!
I, myself, have been experimenting a little with inserting tiny stitches into the front of the project pouches I make.... Here is an example of what I mean...
The three spools and stork scissors are stitched on 25 ct Lugana Country Mocha and then I insert it the fabric so it shows nicely on the front of the pouch..... I think its a nice touch.... (photo is clickable for a close-up of the stitched piece.....)
Additionally, I stitched another small Christmas design....Need to find a whisk brush now....
1 over 1 25ct Country Mocha
dmc threads except Faye's Red SPP by Victorian Motto
Lastly, I'd like to challenge each of you to donate an auction item to The Attic's Breast Cancer Awareness Auction... It is a wonderful event and the proceeds go to Cancer Research.... You will find details here, or by calling The Attic at the phone number listed on their web page... There is even a list of all the items donated in the 2011 Auction and the money each item brought....Amazing!
I will be showing a photo of my item in the near future.....
Need to sign off.....Hope everyone has a great week....And, if you hear a little noise coming from the East Coast of the Carolinas....Its all the 100+ stitchers at the retreat at Myrtle Beach SC.....! Having big fun!!!!
