I’ve finally finished pulling the threads for the 16 canvases for my retreat in 2 weeks.  So for my woody I will be working with raffia for the hut on the side, silks for the leaves and the car body, velvet for the interior, and lots of chrome (silk lame).  Sand is overdyed floss, water is silk and the sky is perle cotton.  I hope that I have time to stitch — I usually end up having so much fun helping everyone else that I forget to sit down and stitch!

So my next step for the retreat is to rearrange the store — the lighting is so much better in the front of the store than in the classroom — besides there is more room.  Plus I need to clear my workrooom so that we can have a place to EAT!!!

Happy Stitching everyone — don’t think I will be getting much stitching  done  myself — just want the retreat to be perfect.
