Stitcher's Day Out

I had a fabbity-fab time last Saturday at the Stitcher's Day Out hosted by the House of Stitches in LaPorte, Indiana! Lori Markovic was there to teach the class and is an absolute rock star among stitchy designers! Our project was her Havana Needlebook and I have been working diligently to complete mine.

It is stitched on 32 count Beige linen from Weeks Dye Works with the most delicious Havana Brown silk from Gloriana. The retro scissors and acorn ornament were class gifties... don't cha love 'em!

I did some shopping at HoS after the class and came home with quite a few new patterns for what can be best described as "the stack". Every time I walk in the shop it's like visiting a buffet and I fill up my plate with waaaay more than I can ever eat. Or stitch. But it all looks so yummy... I can't help myself!

The weather turned warm again here at the lake so fall has been put on hold for the time being, although most folks have already packed up and left. It's been super quiet, even on the weekends. A sure sign that summer must be over.

Thanks for stopping by! I'm off to the Chicken Ottoman Empire for some stitching!

What a super piece you are working on! Ooh, love the acorn (does it open?)! I really like your comparison of shopping at an LNS with a buffet. You are absolutely right. Enjoy your weekend!
