Riverstone it is!

Hmmmm do I, you? recall me saying something about not starting Celtic Summer until I'd finished a certain Setting Sail kit? ... but what can you do? A lovely, relaxing, fun weekend with stitchie friends, all that enabling ... of course I had to start it!

Here is a picture of it so far -

Thank you for all your votes! When I first put the pictures up I was really set on the Silkweavers Serendipty - but after another look and advice from wonderful ladies, I decided on the Riverstone - and I'm so pleased I did - it is looking wonderful :)

I swear solemnly that I am not going to pick it up again until next Tuesday (Tuesdays will be my SAL day for this), by then I should have Setting Sail all finished!

Stitching Retreat

We had so much fun! Katrina has written a good update on her blog, with some pictures - I of course, forgot my camera! LOL ... it was very nice to get together with like friends ... and as for enabling, Katrina did her fair share too! LOL Kath did a wonderful job of organising everything - she's such a clever thing, her little ort bags are a BIG hit!

I didn't stay over at the house - I came later after work on Friday night, and came after lunch on Saturday - after the morning soccer games, went and slept at home on Saturday night and was up bright and early to do the french braiding for Rhiannon's gym competition - DH took her, but there was no way he was going to attempt the french braids - wonder why? LOL

Pat, Kath and I all remembered our veils (maybe Wendy just had more sense?) and we put them on to surprise Katrina ... gosh I haven't laughed so hard in ages - you would have thought we'd had several glasses of wine!

I found this picture on the camera when I downloaded Celtic Summer ... DH must have taken it Saturday afternoon before the Nursery Grade soccer - here is wee Charlotte all kitted out in her Arsenal gear :)

Happy stitching everyone!

Looking good! Celtic Summer is going to be a beauty, especially on that fabric. Great job; keep it up!

P.S. Turning on word verification for your comments will get rid of that nasty comment spam. ;)

What a cutie she is...all suited up!!

Celtic Summer is going to be fabulous on that fabric. I love the colours in that piece...but I can't see myself stitching any of the other Celtic ladies because it took me over 5 years to finish Celtic Christmas LOL.
