October Word Play Finish!

I finished With Thy Needle & Thread's October Word Play today. 

With Thy Needle & Thread October Word Play
Started:  10/10/11
Finished: 10/24/11
Lakeside Linens 28 count Light Exemplar
Recommended GAST and WDW

Jill and I traveled to In Stitches in Alexandria, Virginia yesterday for one of their lock-ins.  We had a great time!!  In our welcome packet we had a JABCO pin.  I decided to put it on one of the handles of my clear tote bag.  

Here is the stash I purchased: 6 x 6 Q-snap, Zecca needlework magnets, Lizzie Kate's Ho Ho Ho Quick it (love this!!!), With Thy Needle & Thread's November Word Play, and the recommended fabric for Little House Needleworks Little Miss Sunshine.  Also in our welcome packet was a $5 coupon and we received an additional 20 percent off our purchases! 

I brought along Bent Creek's Quaker Moon and made some progress.  Two people bought this pattern because they liked mine so much!  I always find it amazing how different a piece looks stitched compared to the photo.

I forgot my camera.  Boo!  I wanted to take some pictures.  Next time!  I now keep my camera in my clear tote bag, so it will never be forgotten again!
