A sneak peek at my friend's work....

 I forgot to write down where these designs are from, so please forgive me for not giving credit.  Love this little redbird and heart!
 She adapted this pattern and just had fun with it.
 Again, I apologize for not crediting the designer.  If you know, please let me know so I can edit this.
Happy stitching, Kathy

It never rains in California.....

 Little House Needleworks, Chocolate Box...I sewed tiny pearls all along the edge.  Will finish as a faux box with the material shown with it.
 Up close photo of my Just Nan's Valentine's piece.
 Primitive Hare's Valentine done with over-dyed thread.  Using the fabric shown with it to finish.
I am still trying to decide exactly how I am going to finish my Just Nan's Valentine piece...I have left off a few lines to make it my own.  Also used some over-dyed threads for more interest.  I am so loving this piece.  I hope to have them all finished by month's end. 
I am looking forward to my trip next month to the Silver Needle Camp Wanasew with my sister.  If anyone has any tips for a successful retreat, let me know as this is my first.  I am going to pack lightly so I can bring home a few treasures.
More later, happy stitching, Kathy
