We had four Floss Tubers in our midst....Long Dawg Stitcher, Jen's Stitching Niche, Southern Ladybug and Ladywing Designs. I tried not to be a fan girl but I got to meet each one of them and they were delightful ladies. Jenny, The Long Dawg Stitcher sat at my table and we found we had lots in common. Both of us are Georgia Girls, both married to Ga Tech men.
First I will share some of the tables...
These ladies sat at my table and we had the best time. All of us but Jenny are members of North Alabama Stitchers. However she did join our group this week. She knows a fun bunch when she sees them.
Jennifer is from Louisiana and she was in Huntsville for the second year.
These sweet ladies sat at the table next to us so we were all chatting and stitching.
Some of these ladies were from Nashville and one from Tuscaloosa. I am not using names as I did not ask if I could mention them on my blog. Crazy Kay is photobombing!!
The Mississippi table...missing Lisha. Katrina Boyd, the founder of our great time is the one smooching Bridget.
Katrina brought lots of charts as well as fabric.
On to Haul....
I purchased a chart with this same saying but it is a bigger stitch. There just might be a giveaway at the end of this post.
I also won a chart of my choosing.
Katrina gifted us with a chart, thread drops and a waxer.
I purchased a project bag from Kay....one for Summer Projects.
Here are some samples of the beautiful stitching I saw at the Retreat
Speaking of Brenda...here she is as Catie shows off her beautiful bee.
One of our NoAla Stitchers, Leslie, recently completed this stitch. A photo does not do it justice.
I hope I have encouraged you to attend a retreat. It is so much fun. We are all looking forward to meeting up again next January.
Now as promised here is a giveaway for a chart that I already owned.
As you can see the one I purchased at retreat is much simpler. I loved this one too but I cannot keep them both so a lucky reader will get this Waxing Moon Designs Chart. Answer this question...who is your favorite designer? Do not use the word giveaway. You must be 18, a follower of this blog and live in the continental US. I will post the winner next Saturday.
PS..bloggers, be sure and check your comments awaiting moderation. I found five there today!! I am not sure what is up with Blogspot lately but just trying to make sure I do not miss any comments.
