Hi, Everybody! I'm back to work after a really great cross stitch retreat weekend. We had a fabulous time. I had classes with Alma and Barb from Blackbird Designs and Jeannette from Jeannette Douglas Designs. They gave us 2 really nice projects (there goes my 'to do' pile) and then we received other projects throughout the weekend. Shepherd's Bush gave us a pattern for a pumpkin 'bag' and Charland gave everyone a beautiful sterling silver acorn necklace. It was relaxing and beautiful. Weather cooperated and was warm. Didn't take a 'walk' on the beach- don't know how my new knees would handle the loose sand but had a great view of the beach from our hotel balcony. It was soooo relaxing but it's great to be home.
Don't forget, the shop will be open this Sunday from 11-2, to make up for my Sunday off, last week.
Rosewood Manor charts have arrived at the shop. More charts are due to arrive today. Here's some of them: Blackbird's Halloween Greetings, Midnight Watch and Joyeux Noel ( a really cool book), Midnight Stitching's Quaker Welcome, Country Cottage Needleworks's Pie Menu and Pegasus' Favorite Dog Stocking Collection.
Well, gotta go and get some more sorting and packing done. The move has been scheduled for Saturday October 24th. That week will mean some serious packing so get your floss and fabric now. Then come out on the week of October 27 and check out the new 'digs'.
Bye, for now. Carolyn
