Stitching under the Oaks retreat
If you ever get the chance to go to this retreat it is wonderful. All the ladies where so nice and made me feel very welcomed. I was really impressed with how well this event was organized. I really hope that I get to go back next year.
Our teacher was Meg Thompson Shinall, She is wonderful. She was very patient with this one... LOL I have done a little Hardanger but still needed some help. I enjoy learning new things. I was determined to get something done before I went home. The husband likes to give me a hard time about starting and and not finishing the class projects. There was 3 practice pieces I got 2 done ( yeah for me) so I have been busy working on the 3rd piece. I hope to finish that tonight. I am excited to began the main piece. Also if I get to go next year I will have it done ...LOL we all have said that before.
Practice pieces 1 and 2
Practice piece 3
This is the special name tag for the retreat. I finally got it done. I did alter it a bit. This was the 10th anniversary for the retreat .
This is the big piece . Hopefully I will be getting it started by this weekend.
I almost forgot our special guest Aunt Mary Edna , boy was she full of herself..
