Weekly Stitching, Haul and Retreat

Happy Monday! I hope you are all getting ready to celebrate Easter and hunt those eggs.

I haven't worked on this in a good while and picked it up this week. When I picked it back up I had only stitched a small amount of the tree going across so I got quite a bit done on this one.

My friend Nessie hosts a retreat at Lake Cumberland, here in KY, each year and this was my third year going. I had to use most of my time off for my surgery so I couldn't take off work on Thursday and Friday but it is fairly close to me so I went on Saturday. It was great fun seeing stitchers that I haven't seen since last year, meeting new ones that came for the first time, good food, much laughter and a bit of shopping and stitching.

Let Your Heart Be Light-Shakespeare's Peddler This project is a limited edition, exclusive pattern that was done just for Katrina Boyd to sell at retreats she is a part of. Click on her name and check out the retreats she has, so you can hopefully attend. They are great fun!

One of the stitchers brought a box of kits to giveaway and I got two.

I wouldn't typically stitch this but my husband loves to fish so it will be for him


  1. Good work on your projects, Laura! It sounds like you had a marvelous time at the retreat you attended. Retreats are the best!

  2. Great progress and some nice new stash. I love the Shakespeare's Peddlar design.
    It's a bit mean making you use holiday when you were having surgery! Glad that you made it to the retreat.
