Hi Everyone —
Carol and I arrived back from Mexico last night. We had such an awesome week — relaxing, productive, delicious, and fun!
We ended our “retreat” with more stitching done than when we started! Carol was able to start on the interior of her St. Margaret’s Star.
Rosie got as far as she could with the Or Nue. There were a number of errors/omissions in the article — but the one that stopped progress cold was when I ran out of Japan gold thread for the background. The article called for one spool (no mention of length), so this is as far as five meters would go:
So, I’ll be visiting Mrs. Stitches sometime this week! I think this is a nice piece for teaching — but I’ll try to have some alternatives as well. The technique is pretty easy and I can think of a number of places where it would be dynamite!
We went back to the Italian restaurant at the resort just so that we could share the artful presentation of the food.
We also made the most unusual find at one of the shops — titanium necklaces! You can spread them or mold them into different configurations — truly unique and fashionable!
We would love to do another retreat with more of you able to attend — so start brainstorming and we’ll see what makes sense…
Cheers! Rosie and Carol
