Recap of stitch day

Melanie has been talking to me a couple times lately about documenting, so I took my camera along with me on Sunday when I stitched with Melissa and Audrey.

Audrey has been working on her Blackbird Designs stockings. Aren't they wonderful?










I picked away at Remember Me. This is turning out a big bigger than I wanted, but it's still a keeper.









It wasn't until I was on the road going home that I realized I hadn't taken a picture of Melissa's finished project. However, she did make this masterpiece in honor of Audrey's birthday later this month. It's a Paula Dean ice cream cake. I believe she said there is either one or one and a half cups of butter in this. Need I say more?!

This coming weekend is the spring retreat with my quilt group, so the next few nights will be spent picking out projects and cleaning up the sewing room. And I hope to remember to pack my camera for more documentation when I head to Findley Lake. Catch you later.

Those stockings are gorgeous and so is the stitchery you are working on. This documenting idea is a good one. I still need to get on it.
Been a little down in the dumps lately and I need to shake out of it.

Have a great day!

I love that remember me, how pretty! I hope that you had a good time last night. I was home all day with a very grumpy and sick 3yo. He has an ear infection, so hopefully he'll start feeling better soon! I was bummed that I missed out. But thank you again for inviting me. Hopefully next time. :)

The stitching projects look challenging! You're doing a great job on yours. The cake - Grandma once said if you cut a piece of dessert in half, the calories all go out of it.
Have fun this weekend! Sometimes the hardest part is figuring out what to take with you!!

What cute stockings! I love your progress on Remember Me, too. I have a few pieces that are too small for framing and too big for pin pillows, so I lightly stuffed them and then put them in baskets to display them.

Have a great weekend!
