back from the Branson retreat

What a fun weekend… there were 52 of us hanging out, stitching, eating, and shopping. We each had a Christmas tree and some stitchy goodies at our places when we arrived.

Here’s what my stitching space looked like once I got settled in:

And here’s a shot of the snack area:

I was able to finish a few projects this weekend, too! One was a stocking:

one was this Shepherd’s Bush turkey:

and one was a Brittercup design, which I haven’t taken a picture of yet. Here’s a few of my favorite stashing purchases… Ink Circles “Croaksworth” and The Drawn Thread “26 Stitches”:

and a shop exclusive, the Meg Shinall sampler reprint:

I also bought these black swan scissors, which are perfect for the groovy felted ball fob that my friend Kathleen made for me:

It was a fun time, but I am worn out; it’s good to be home again. C’mon bedtime!

  4. Looks like an awesome retreat. I’ve never been to Branson, but have heard that it’s a fun place. Visiting there and having a stitching retreat would be a blast. Your Let it Snow Stocking was so pretty, and the little turkey very cute.
