On the road again!

I'm hitting the road first thing in the morning!
This time for Stitch Camp at Country Sampler in Spring Green, Wisconsin.
This year the teachers are Stacy Nash and Needlework Press.

We had homework for our Needlework Press class - an antique reproduction sampler.

Happily mine is done and ready to go!

I also had a finish this holiday weekend!

"Peacock Peacock Needle Keep"
by Stacy Nash for Country Sampler Girls Club
I finished mine a little differently ~ as a thread board.
I have to say that I overdosed on the color pink in the 1980's and haven't been a fan since.
But this piece changed my mind about pink!
I stitched this in the spring and loved it! I even added some pink mother of pearl thread rings ;)

And here is the back:

A soft red velvet needle keep tied to the thread board for safe keeping.

I'll be back to share about Stitch Camp ~ I don't think that I'll even have time to get homesick ;)

“Give praise to the Lord, proclaim his name;
    make known among the nations what he has done,
    and proclaim that his name is exalted.
Sing to the Lord, for he has done glorious things;
    let this be known to all the world.
~Isaiah 12:4-5

Blessings, Patti

You have the best vacations! But I'm heading to Springfield, Ohio in a couple of weeks; and it will be fun. We won't be seeing Yellow Springs, but we will be spending the day with Cathy Young of Youngs Dairy. She loved your blog post when you mentioned the farm!

What a wonderful way to spend some time in Spring Green! Your sampler is so beautiful and I am loving how you finished the girls club piece into a thread board. Where did you ever find the pink thread rings.....they are the perfect accent! Enjoy your stitch camp and please, lots of pictures!
