I had the pleasure of spending this past weekend with some very special stitching friends.
I see you Lisa!!
I had wanted to get together with some stitching friends for a weekend full of stitching. We met in Harrisburg, PA and had a Stitchfest. 48 hour of uninterrupted stitching=Stitchfest.
I designed this small pattern for our first annual Stitchfest.
I am going to put everyone’s initials on it and finish it up.
A few of us participated in an exchange on Saturday night.
These were our wonderful exchange pieces.
Other than the exchange the rest of the weekend was devoted to stitching and I love the show and tells. I’ll have to remember that for next year.
We also received some very special gifts from our generous stitching friends.
I will treasure these gifts!! The best part was getting together with these fabulous ladies to stitch and laugh all weekend long. That is priceless!! I enjoyed every minute of it!
Thank you so much to all who came and made the 1st annual Stitchfest a success. I can’t wait to see you all next year.
I designed and stitched up this little Fall/Halloween piece while were at Stitchfest.
I am offering this as a freebie here on my blog for everyone. If you would like a copy please send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I would be happy to send a copy to you.
I stitched this on orange fabric that I dyed and DMC 3371. These little pumpkins can be stitched on any fabric with any color you choose and it would look great.
Clearly, mine is not finished yet but I wanted to offer it right away so you have enough time to stitch these sweet little pumpkins.
Have a great day with lots of stitching!
