Home from Retreat

OH My!!! I am so tired!!! I got home yesterday from my cross stitch retreat and I am exhausted! I don't think I slept for more than 4 hours a night!!! I really enjoyed meeting everyone from the ILCS group. We spent time stitching, chatting, eating and more stitching!!!!

I won a beautiful green frog because I did the most frogging at the retreat! I made several HUGE mistakes and spent a lot of time ripping things out. I did manage to finish another page on my Down Main street.

Karin taught classes on how to make a Biscorni (a tuffet really) and we learned how to make a pinkeep. I will post pictures later on of my these items.

We had over 50 different designers send us LOTS of donated charts for our retreat and I LOVE all my patterns.

Will talk more about the retreat this is my tearoom update. I think it is looking very good!

Tea Room is comming along nice. I wished I could find a retret here in Texas. I would love to figure out how to make a pin keep. Glad you had fun at your retret.
