Camp wannasew

Truly where to begin... I am beginning at the end as a true upside down southern girl. This is Teresa and myself with Mona the fabulous finisher and Lindy the awesome owner of the Silver Needle at the end of camp. The host shop for the weekend. It was such a wild whirlwind that we almost forgot to take photos for the blog which would have been a true blogging crisis for what would I have then for show and tell. We got their Thursday and set up our stitching nest with Mary, Sonnie and Ruthanne.Three new stitching friends we meet there. Ruthanne is not pictured because she had left already, Mary is a bit blocked by the lamp but Sonnie is pictured. I cannot imagine a nicer stitching table. Mary is a wonderful poet shared the sweetest poem about camp at introduction time. Sonnie offered the sweetest calming spirit and Runthanne had a lot of stitching knowledge. 
Sorry for the bad photo but I had to fight them to get that much of one. Friday night we went to Edna's for an Amish dinner with her famous home made noodles. The family style meal was fun and filling. We came pack to get a couple of the projects. First up was a box to make. Then a shaker pin keep. Then Saturday morning was a needle book similar to the ones LK had at market that Mona whipped up in her spare time. She is just a wealth of knowledge and finishing inspiration.

Mine is on the left, Teresa's the right.

There were 12 stated represented from all over the country and many camp veterans and newbies.
 This photos are when we were packing it up for the weekend. They are not the best quality but you get the idea I am sure. There was  a mini-shop at the camp to choose from and town was not that far away if you are in need of a true Silver Needle fix. I'll be posting a shop pictures in a few days with my finished pieces from camp! Hint there is a BAP in the mix!!!! I am so excited to be done with the lovely sampler. 

I got the most wonderful exchange piece to open when I got home but no photos to show yet. But I can say a big thanks to my secret exchange partner.
