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


  1. Great finishes and love the backing fabrics. Can't wait to see them made up. Enjoy your stitching retreat, I can't help I'm afraid as I have never been on one.

  2. You have some lovely finishes here.
    I can't give you any tips but just that you enjoy your retreat. I have never been to any as there aren't stitching retreats in my country. But I'd really love to go to one one day. Looking forward to reading your report.

  3. A couple of years ago, I made a list shortly after returning from camp, you can find it here. Hope this helps. Have fun!

  4. It's never too late for Valentine's Day! Your stitching is so pretty :)

    Have fun at the camp--can't wait to hear all about it!
