Christmas in August.

I'm going to work on the flip it's tonight to get it done for the weekend. There is only Cookie and Santa left to do. The 4 new charts will be in at the end of the month.
This is such a pretty piece the colours are stunning. I like the weeks dyed fibers.

Today was a fun day at the Thursday stitching group.
Ann is getting ready for her Stitching get together for Saturday. It should be great, I will take lots of photos. She expects maybe 25 stitchers.

We start around noon and do pot luck and as usual there will be lots of goodies. We eat again around 6. So... Laugh, eat, visit and get a bit of [not to difficult] stitching done. Yippee!

I want to thank you all for the lovely comments you have sent me for the stitcher of the week on Victoria Sampler news letter.
My Mom was pleased that so many folks read it. Also thank you for the Birthday wishes for her.I have been passing them on to her! You have been very kind.

Thank you friends!

Stitch with happy fingers and have a great day

You LK is looking beautiful. Enjoy your weekend. I am sad that I can't be there. Give your Mom an extra hug for me tomorrow.

Is the LizzieKate in installments? It is such a cheerful design. It is looking great and must be putting you in a little bit of a holiday mood. 25 stitchers at a get together. Wow! That will be busy and fun.

Have a great weekend Beatrice!

Hugs ~

Wow Beatrice, that's looking great! I can't wait to see it tomorrow in person!

See you at lunchtime tomorrow!

Heehee, at first I thought it read ' Holy stocking'! Love the design, though and it reminds me that I really need to start some Christmas stitching of my own. September is fast approaching! I hope you have a lovely weekend!

That is going to be a great piece. It is coming along great.
I bet you are having a fun day right now since it is now time for your dinner with your group. Happy stitching.

Hi Beatrice,

Saw the picture of the stitchers
gathered for Ann's retreat on
Dani's blog and it looks like
a great turn out. You all certainly had a great day for it. Hey!! No rain!!

Your Lizzie Kate Christmas piece
is looking great and I agree that
the colours are amazing. So rich
and vibrant. This will be so
great when it's done.

I'm coming to Kathy's for the
long weekend. I'm going to get
to meet you guys in person!! I
can't wait!! :)

I love this design and plan this as my new start after I finish the 12 Blessings of Christmas. You have made a great start on it.
