Camp was a blast! It was so much fun to spend the weekend with the ladies and stitch and laugh and laugh and eat and stitch and talk and eat and shop! Not much sleeping....

It was a great weekend. The ladies were a joy. The local shops that supported us, Golden Needle, Quilts 'n More and The Bead Room were awesome. The projects that were worked on (and that some completed!) were beautiful. The facility was perfect. As a whole, we were able to make a contribution to Habitat in excess of $1200!!!! I can't wait to do it again!
My finish for the week. Lizzy Kate "Home is where Our Story Begins". This is the current give back to the community project from Golden Needle. Stitched with DMC floss on Rustico fabric. These will be presented to the local Habitat New Home owners. Quick stitch and I love the sentiment!
Yesterday I took a beading class from Amy Loh-Kupser and made this beautiful bracelet. I'm not a beading fan, but she was a great teach and had TONS of patience with me! Not so sure she truly appreciated my sense of humor when I asked Malinda why she didn't just glue the beads to the wooden needle holder instead of peyote - ing them..... Amy has some beautiful things. Check out her website at i-bead.com
I'm in love with her seahorse amulet bag, just not sure I have the patience to try peyote again after flunking out earlier this year on the bracelet I posted a photo of here on Oct 28.....
Same bracelet being modeled by Miss Rippit....who, by the way, was a great camp guess. She spend a lot of time with the different ladies as the did the reverse stitch....
The mail this week included a graduation announcement for my great niece Emily. Isn't she beautiful??? Looks like her mom & her dad! Sure does make me feel old when the great niece's are graduating from high school.... Congratulations Emily & best wishes.... make sure to save Auntie M back stage passes when you make the big time!
Not much else new. We are trying to enjoy the ACM awards tonight but Comcast seems to think we don't want to watch them, the picture and the sound keeps cutting out.... We still need rain. Work is still work. This week is stitch night at Golden Needle on Wednesday and EGA dinner meeting on Thursday. I'm currently stitching on the commemorative project Marleen designed for camp (I love it!!!). Hope to have a picture to post next weekend.
