From Our Hands ~ Creative ~ 2018 ~ The Giveaway


Finally! The time has come for my little giveaway ~
accumulated on my trip to Yellow Springs, Ohio for the From Our Hands ~ Creative retreat.
Some yummy wool, a Rebekah L. Smith ruler and waxer, a pretty note card from Lori Ann Corelis, some hand-dyed pins from Stacy Nash, a mini-charm pack from Fabric Shack and a sweet little bee plant poke picked up on my travels.


In order to enter, simply leave a comment on this post or send an email to me at pgagliardi9@hotmail.com with Ohio giveaway in the subject line and tell me what needlework project you are working on this holiday weekend. Or maybe you aren't with parades, memorials, gardening and graduations keeping many busy ~ that's ok too!

I'll pick a random winner on Friday, June 1st.


Thank you Lori Ann Corelis, Kelsey Smith and Rebekah L. Smith for another fabulous retreat!
We enjoyed every minute and appreciate all the effort in putting this together.
And thanks to Stacy Nash and Donna Bennett for increasing the fun!

Finally, thanks to you for letting me share the journey.

How great are your works, Lord,
    how profound your thoughts!
~Psalms 92:5

Blessings, Patti

Would love to be entered for a chance at such a lovely giveaway. I am currently working on His Eye is on the Sparrow by Heartstring Samplery along with Spring in Baltimore by With Thy Needle and Thread. While babysitting the grandkids, I can always sneak in a few stitches here and there. Have a blessed Memorial Day weekend!

Barb said...

Sounds like a great trip...and you finished super close to me at Calico Moon. Great find there. Working on Moonlight Garden BOM this weekend. Hoping for lots of stitching time.

I always look forward to reading your posts and vicariously enjoy your travels with your mother. She does such lovely handwork and I envy you the time you get to spend with her, having lost my mom when I was seventeen. Give her a gentle hug from me please, and count your time with her as a special gift.

What a beautiful giveaway! This weekend I will be FINISHING a punch needle design of Lori Brechlin's that I will be mounting on the back of a shelf already hanging in my kitchen. And I will be doing that outside under the trees of northern Rhode Island while my husband and I are camping out this Memorial Day Weekend! I have been soooooo busy for sooooo many weeks -- I am truly looking forward to sitting in the shade and FINISHING this lovely project! Thanks for asking!

Lady Locust said...

Oh how generous of you - that bee makes me smile 😊. Hmmm, this weekend I need to finish piecing the most “pieced” back I’ve ever done - for my Foothills quilt along. Also, continue working on my block of the month I started about 6-7 years ago. I’m on July so maybe it’s block of the year😂

Marlene Haller said...

I always enjoy reading your blog. Although I have never attended a retreat, I do enjoy reading what you and others share about their travels. I am trying to get at least one project completed each month. “Good Intentions” by Kathy Barrick is so close to the finish line, and that is what I will be happily working on this weekend.

denise said...

I'll probably work on my BBD mini stoking and then if my ticking comes it will be a project out of Maggie Bonami new book or I may just knit.Those are some yummy goodies!!@✂️

It sounds like a wonderful retreat. I would like to participate in one someday.

Annmarie said...

Your journey was such a treat for me. Thanks! I am working on two projects, the first is a bargello reproduction wallet that I found online and am doing my own interpretation....very similar but using scrap wool for my stitching. I'm also stitching on the Emily Munroe Quilt that I signed up for on Facebook. It's 54 "potholder" blocks and I'm following her designs for about half the blocks but also adding in my own blocks (Rebekah Smith designs, antique fraktur and rug pictures, and other designs that I love). Have a great holiday weekend.

marie said...

I am working on a Halloween wall hanging and binding 6 place mats that I used the last of my French General stash. Who knows what I'll work on next, a hooked rug or finish up a wool applique quilt from last year's free BOM.

Simple Pleasure said...

Thank you for again letting me tag along with you and Mom on this wonderful needlework journey!
Over the weekend, I'll continue working on Christmas ornaments for my twin grandsons...Sue Hillis design, Shoot ForYourGoal...a basketball theme to mark their achievement in this sport. As I stitch slowly, I must start now for a comfortable Christmas finish...LOL

Warmest regards,

I am working on a table mat designed by Karen Hahn from Horse and Buggy Designs. It has been a fun project--lots of embellishing. I really enjoy stitching her patterns.

You and your mom always manage to find the neatest places to visit and then come away with wonderful projects that you actually finish I must say your the envy of most. I want to tag along on your next adventure, but since I'm sure you don't want to travel with a bus load of hanger ons it's lovely that you share your journey with your lovely give aways. I love visiting all your getaways via your blog posts thanks.
