Good Morning! As you read this post I will be at the Drury Hotel in Huntsville where Katrina Boyd is holding her January Retreat. I am not a big traveler but I can drive 30 minutes to get to Huntsville.
Here is a WIP parade of things I am working on in the New Year. All these things were from my stash I am pleased to say!
I kitted this Penny Pumpkin up to take to the Retreat. The fabric is Cyprium....another friend at North Alabama Stitchers was using this fabric and I loved how it looked on her piece. It is 28 count Cashel from 123 Stitch. Dont envy my Dr Who Needleminder!
I am stitching The farmers Wife from Farmyard Parade. Another start to take to the Retreat. It is being stitched on 28 count Even Weave from Hobby Lobby. It will go to the dough bowl at Grimmwood. I am using my Mr Rogers Needleminder on this one but it is at the bottom of the Q Snap.
Now for some finishes...
This Whirlygig from Heart in Hand will be made into a pillow. I finished the others in rounds but thought I would change things up.
I finished my January Prairie Schooler.
All you quilters do not cry out in Dismay at my feeble attempt at quilting stitches. It was late at night and I was getting tired.
This last piece is the small I am taking for our North Alabama Stitchers Smalls exchange at the retreat. The lady I stitched this for does not read my blog so I can go ahead and share it.
We were supposed to do something Wintery. I used a freebie chart I found online. Sorry I cannot remember the designer. I added the little spools at the top in a nod to our love of stitching.
I will be back next week with pictures from the Retreat! Stay Tuned.
