The lady in the green shirt is the coordinator.
These are our completed jars and the single jar is my personal work.
Some of these ladies are so amazing. I wish I could show more of their work but I was only able to get permission from 1 to share publicly. These 2 pictures are her work the Santa is what she stitched this week-end. The stump work is some of the things she brought to share.
While I was there I worked on 3 different pieces. I finished all the stitching on my Mill Hill Santa. I did not even try to add the beads. I was not going to try beading in a full room such as that. I then did the Sweetheart Tree pattern that I then turned into the ORT jar top. Our February stitching get together is our annual exchange month. I got the pattern, linen, and silks to complete this design the Saturday before our retreat. I knew we were going to be doing the class and I decided that the pattern would be perfect for this. And finally I worked on my HEAD Christmas Cottage. I got alot done but of course with the socializing that goes on, looking at others projects and going to dinner you never get as much done as you think you might.
I have already put the deposit down on next years retreat!!!!!!!!!!
