Result from the Retreat

I had a wonderful time at the Shakespeare's Peddler Retreat. I met some wonderful women who have the same hobbies as I do. Most of the women were from the Minnesota, but there were also people from Tennessee, Alabama, and Wisconsin. We had a great time and I spent all of my gift certificate in one trip.

I completed the stitching of my Halloween ornament. The pattern is an Wichelt Imports, Inc. freebie pattern. The pattern had hearts in shades of black and orange. I replaced them with candy corns. I also used Zweigart's Lincoln - 14 count Sage Green fabric which I received as a sample.

I finished beading my bag with the beads that I had. I need to do one more flower and finish the clusters. I will then be ready to finish the bag (put it together, add the fringe and the strap). I think that it looks beautiful.

I spent most of my time on the penguin stocking. I completed one more penguin and about half of the next 3 penguins. I plan to finish these three and stitch the last two before the weekend. I have been stitching on this stocking since 1998 (I think). Once I finish it I am going to make it into a stocking that may hang in my house year round. :}

Thanks for coming by.

Looks good. You did quite a bit at the retreat. Get to work on the penguins though.
