Off on another adventure...

I don't have any new offerings this month as I have been preparing for an adventure.
The second annual Bittersweet Stitching Sisters gathering.
(You can look at my posts last October to see our first gathering or simply search my blog for "Bittersweet Sisters")
Are you familiar with
Well, last year Bittersweet Sister, Carla, found this wonderful bittersweet fabric by Lori Brechlin of Notforgotten Farm on Spoonflower. 

She shared it with all of us and a fabric challenge was born.
We are each to make gifts for the group using this fabric.
We had all year to work on them. Of course, I waited until this month.

And this month I also designed a little original wool project for us to work on.
I've also been working on some stitching homework.
A day after I return from the Bittersweet Sisters Gathering, I will be heading to The Country Sampler in Spring Green, Wisconsin for the star-studded Star Party! 
Whew! What a great two weeks!
Stay tuned for a full report!
I felt bad that I didn't have any offerings for my mailing list friends. So I had a little giveaway for my mailing list only. Congratulations to Sharyn! She won her choice of any one item in my Etsy shop. She chose the pillow pictured above.
If you would like to join my mailing list and be the first to see my newest offerings, simply send me an email to and I will add you.
After my adventure, I will have a giveaway for my blogging friends :)
"Be glad, people of Zion,
rejoice in the Lord your God,
for he has given you the autumn rains
because he is faithful.
He sends you abundant showers,
both autumn and spring rains, as before."
~Joel 2:23
Blessings, Patti
