Back from Lake Shetek

Good Morning Everyone!
I have not read any blogs since last Wednesday so I have a lot of reading ahead of me! 
Last Wednesday I left for Lake Shetek for a stitching retreat, and got back home on Sunday about noon.
I didn't take very many pictures but my daughter did with her new camera.
But I did get a bunch of stitching done 
First up is We Three Kings
 Got a good start on the second King.

This was my finish for the weekend
Merry Christmas by Glory Bee - Nancy Boyarsky
Just Cross Stitch Christmas Ornament 2013
Mystery fabric from stash
called for DMC Floss
Started 10-09-2013
Finished 10-10-2013

The last piece that I stitched on was started last year for my Crazy January Challenge 2012.
June's Sweet Cake
Erica Michaels - Rainbow Gallery
32 ct cream Belfast Linen
Hi-lights, Splendor & Subtlety, & Mill Hill Beads
Started 1-13-12 (CJC 2012)
I am making a few changes on this piece. To start with there is suppose to be nine candles, I only have five because this piece will be for my granddaughters 5th birthday. And across the bottom is suppose to say How Many? but I will be putting she name there.

I also worked on a table runner. I got the blocks cut out and some of it sewed together. I did not get a picture of it yet but as soon as I complete it I will post about it.

Well its time to get back to the laundry and house cleaning. Then it to town to pick up some groceries.

Have a Great Week!
Happy Stitching
Denise

Hi Denise,

Looks like you got lots done at your retreat, beautiful work.

I’m extremely sorry about the travelling chart, but when I didn’t hear anything from you I left it a week and re picked it. It’s already on its way to Australia. I’ve checked all through my emails and had nothing from you, so I’m really sorry.

If you would still like to stitch it, all I can do is send you the copy of the chart that I used to work from. Email me Here if you would like to do that.

Once again, I’m really sorry
Sue

Great stitching. I love the colours on the Kings. The cake is lovely too, I'm stitching some of the Brooke's Books monthly cakes which are a nice series too.
