Take a Stitch sign ups
I signed up for Take a Stitch Tuesdays! Sharon will be posting a stitch every Tuesday on her blog, you can do this all year and learn new stitches, and practice them on your own. This is something everyone can do, only takes a little time.
So join me and lets see what we make throughout the year.

Latest Challenge Piece

This was our challenge for the last month, do a Self Portrait.
I tried two different ideas until I did this one, and am happy with everything except my zigzag stitching on the border. It was my first try at that, so will improve with time!! For all the challenge pieces, check out Challenging Ourselves link on the sidebar.

Look Out North Carolina!!

Today is all about packing, headed to NC tomorrow morning for a great retreat with over 80 of my online friends!! This is the fourth HGTV Circle Of Friends retreat.
Every year it is held in a different state. Some of our wonderful board members step up and agree to host. THEY do all the work, we descend upon them, and they are never the same!! lol
Classes, fun, eating, shopping, and this year sexy firemen are in my future. ha ha
I will explain the firemen when I get home. wink wink
I will get lots of pics, and spend lots of money on fabric, and other quilty things.
But it is only once a year, so you have to do that.
I can`t wait to see old friends, and put faces to others.

PJ party scarf

On our quilting board on HGTV, we do a PJ party Friday nights. Every Friday in January and February, one of our board members teaches a class on a small project. This last Friday was a quilted scarf. It was fun and so easy, would make great Christmas presents for next year. This is the one I did for my sons girlfriend, if you can`t tell, her favorite color is green!!
