While up at Celebration I got to see Carol and Margaret again and meet Jo and her husband Pete for the first time. We all had a good time together. We all went out to dinner one night at Shortys and Mary, Carol and I went shopping on Friday at a needlework shop in Mass not more then a 10 min ride from Celebration. We also had fun on Friday morning shopping
I shared a room again with Mary. Her birthday is this week so I brought her gift up with me. I stitched her a bag with a Britty Kitty pattern on it and I filled the bag with some Lizzie Kate charts and kits.
I didn't get a picture of the whole bag just the part I stitched. If I can get a picture of the bag I'll post it for you all to see.
I worked on my Lizzie Kate Flip it for June since I had done May back in Jan when I was able to get 2 months done at the same time. Boy did I have a devil of a time working on this one. I was visited by the frog the entire time I worked on it. Hopefully next month will go smoothly.
Here is what my L*K piece looks like. I know a number of you had asked me if I was doing them asked me if I was doing them on one piece or separately. Sorry the pictures not the best. I'll try and get a better one soon.
And here is the progress I made of Celtic Heart. I'm really enjoying working on this piece. I can't wait to get the border done so I can move onto the heart.
On Saturday night at Celebration We (Mary, Jo, Margaret and I) went to the Saturday Night Social. We all had a lot fun. We each one (or I should say everyone at our table did) a beautiful picture frame. Each table got a box (or bag) in a game similar to Lets Make a Deal.
Each year at the Social they also have a silent auction for Breast Cancer. Mary bid on, and won, a beautiful hand made quilt for a King Size bed. Jo bid on, and also won a signed copy of Carriage House Samplings Suzannah and the fabric, silk and frame. I fell in love with a basket full of fabrics and I wasn't going to leave with out it.
So here are a few pictures of what I won.
Not only is there fabric when I dug into it I found fabric to use for a kitchen towel, a tea cozy I can stitch on, some bands of fabric and a cute little cause I could use for glasses or maybe my cell phone.
And lastly here are some pictures of some of the stash I came home with.
