In addition to the wonderful vendors of The Mercantile,
we also spent the day surrounded by so much inspiration stitching.
Pretty flowers on every table.
Rebekah's beautiful ribbons making my heart sing.
My Bittersweet Stitching Sister, Linda made wonderful progress on her darling bunny.
Here are many of the bunny makers and their inspirational teacher, Lori Ann.
I had a little finish myself - Robin on Egg from a Lori Ann class in Ohio last year.
Although not finished at the Needle In, Mom finished her sweet bag shortly after.
And I finished mine a week after Mom.
Lori Ann and Rebekah are such gracious hosts and even had door prizes for us.
Although Mom and I didn't win, we were excited that Bittersweet Stitching Sister, Linda did.
And we were tickled that our new friend, Kim won this sweet little pinkeep made by Lori Ann!
You have been so kind to let me share our adventure and have left so many sweet comments.
Now here is where you can join in the fun:
