We stitched all morning with Jan showing us sseveral new stitchess whie we practiced. This is the sample pin cushion project we are all working on to get us ready for the Romancing Baskets pattern Jan so graciously gave us. Of course, when working on our pin cushion we can embroider any way we choose. Jan's is so pretty and it makes you want to try to copy her stitches. I did use different fabrics that we got in our kits, so mine won't look just like Jan's.
After lunch we returned to find another treat. a little box of chocolates.
Some of the other students brought various embroidery books to share, some of which were out of print, but had they wonderful patterns.
We stitched until 3pm and then it was time for tea and show and tell again.
DAY 4 of the Retreat. This is the last day of Tea and Stitches. It has been so much fun and I hate to see it end.
Another little surprise was waiting for us when we arrived. A little high heel shoe of silk ribbon from YLI,
Before we left for the day, we gathered for lunch and a departing surprise. More chocolates and tea to take with us and more door prizes.
Ann won 2 door prizes. Lucky girl. I won 2 last year.
We checked in with Ryan. Emma was better, but Trevor had a fever of 102, so we decided to go over and visit while we could,
And a few days earlier.
