I will have to break down and clean this week, my house is going to be a host house of a tea for a close family friend. We have been friends with them for over 10 years and it is so fun to see the oldest start the next phase of her life. It has been fun planning and hopefully I can get a few photos in before the chaos begins. So here is my idea for a give-a-way. We sent 116 invitations. The person who picks closest to the actual number of people who attend will win a prize! I'll announce the winner Sunday after the grand event if I'm still standing.
Have a good week and happy stitching,

We can post the pictures of the Spring/Easter exchange I participated in from Stitched with Love Exchanges There is a new one just posted if any of you are interested and join in the fun.
This is all that remained... a cyclops egg cover with frayed ends. It was so cute when it arrived I had been protecting it I thought from all the varmints in my house (DH, DS and 4 dogs) I failed but was spared 190 calories.

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.
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.
Thanks for stopping by and more camp talk soon,
