Stitching Retreat at Lake Shetek

Good Morning Everyone!

I got back for Lake Shetek on Sunday afternoon and I am just now getting things put away. I didn't have to work at the Post Office yesterday so I chose to spend it with my grandchildren. We had a great time, we went out for lunch, and then hung out at the shop. 

The boys sprayed out the beans and cleaned out the combine for grandpa.
And my granddaughter took a nap.
Well now on to the stitching stuff.

Jill and I packed up and left after she got off work on Wednesday night. 
Thursday morning we woke up to this beautiful sight!

Sunflower Dishtowel
This towel I started a very long time ago. So this weekend I
worked on it and backstitched the flowers . 

And last but not least
Woodland Folk
I finished back stitching the little fox and got the squirrel done 
A picture from where I was sitting and working

This was the deck right out side our work area - there are 2
squirrels playing on it.

And these are the towels that my daughter made for me to hang on my stove.
Aren't they cute.
Well there are a lot more pictures and stories to show and tell but I need to get to work so off I go for now.
Happy Stitching
