I went up to New Hampshire at the end of April/begining of May again this year to Celebration of Needlwork. I was worried going up there since I hadn't been stitching as to how I would feel once I got up there. I shouldn't have worried. I was fine. Once I got there and got to see everyone stitching I just wanted to dive right in and stitch too!

A while ago I hasd started working on Ivy and she was the piece I picked up while I was at Celebration to work on. I'll have to see if I can find the bag that the fabric came it. It was a piece that Carol helped me pick out last year at Celebration.


I had a lot of fun geting to see everyone again and meeting new people (Mary, Eileen, Margaret). I did however miss hooking up with Carol this year but, I won't let that happen next year.

I had hoped that once I got back from Celebration I'd have my stitching mojo back. I didn't really, but, I came back to me yesterday. I picked up My Needle's Work by LHN (4 down on the page). I didn't get much done but, I just love this piece and I'm already thinking about when I can work on it again. I just love the scan of his piece as it shows the color chanves in her top much better then what I see when I'm working on it.




Since it's been a while since I posted I thougth I'd share a few pictures of Felix and Stitch or the 'kids' as we call them.



Say 'hi' Felix.

Hey Jen, I will almost certainly attend the NH show next year and would love to meet up with you. Do you stay over or go for the day?

Your cat is so cute! Do you have a cat named Misha, or am I thinking of someone else?

Glad to see you back and posting. Adorable pictures, kittens are so cute, and I love watching them when they explore things. You've made a great start on both your LHN piece and Ivy. I have Ivy in my stash to do at some point. Glad you had such a good time at Celebration, sounds like just what you needed to get your stitching bug back.
