This is Bent Creek's Rise & Shine. It was originally a kit and a friend sent me her chart. I finally finished this. I started it over a year ago. I took it to Stitcher's Hideaway Alumni Retreat in February and got most of it done. Yesterday I worked on it at Celebrations in Nashua NH. The picture is clickable for a better view. I did change almost all the colors to what I had on hand, and that went with my wallpaper in the dining area. Whch is where it will go.
In other news~I was in Delaware last week and stopped by Where Victoria's Angels Stitch in Clifton NJ on my wy home. Thanks to all the stitchers that stopped to say hello. I love that shop! Tawny has the most well-stocked shop I have ever been in, and I've seen a lot of shops.
This week is Celebrations in Nashua. I dropped my models off at Chris's Collection and then went back up yesterday for shopping and stitching. I ran into practically every stitcher I know. It is a very popular event. They have some great classes, but to me it's the mechandise mall that makes it worth the trip. That and sitting in the lobby stitching with friends.
I am sitting here waiting for the Direct TV repairman to come fix my dish. I have been without TV for 3 days now. I have to say, it isn't that bad. But I have missed a couple of the new shows that we've been taping. I'll find them somewhere, maybe even online. Isn't technology wonderful!
I have a couple things to sew. I am going to make the Bent Creek I just finished into a pillow for my dining area. I bought a pattern for a wool needleroll yesterday but I am using fabric instead. I also have a little purse pattern I want to try. Pictues when they're finished.
Back to work. Have a great day. I hope you find time to sttch............Nancy
