Long Over Due Post!! (Picture Heavy)

Good Morning Everyone!
This might end up being a long one, but I am going to try to keep it at a minimal.

My last post was at the beginning of August so I will start there. August was our busy camping month.
Our camp site set up (that was our spot for 2 weeks)
My husband enjoyed the cooking - bacon and eggs on the grill - it was awesome
Then we moved on to the being of school for the grand kids and football season.
#70 is my grandson
The middle of Sept I managed a finish 
For Spacious Skys
Heartstring Samplery - Beth Twist
Started - 8/4/15       Finished 9/17/15
36 ct White Edinburgh Linen  and called for floss

Then I started and finished a Blackbird design
Peace Rose
Blackbird Design
Started - 9/10/15      Finished - 9/24/15
35 ct Abecedarian Linen  and called for floss

My Blackbird grouping




October 7 - 11 was spent with a lovely group of women at Lake Shetek for our stitchers get away.
the building we stayed in
a shot of some of the group
and the view I had from where I sat and stitched. what beautiful sunrises.
While at retreat I did the backstitching on this little guy.
Santa's Boy Toy (winter 2012 Magazine)
by Stoney Creek 
Started 9/25/15     Finished 10/9/15
fabric from stash and called for floss

Next I finished 2 more Christmas Blessings by Lizzie Kate
I only have one left to do (Song) and then I will make them into little pillow pin keeps to fill a basket during the holidays.

And last but not least is my update on We Three Kings
This was before I left for Lake Shetek
And this was as of 10/11/15

I have a new start but will leave that for the next post.
I am off to get the dishes done, then take my shower and off to work I go.
I hope everyone has a great week!!!
Happy Stitching
Denise

I thoroughly enjoyed your post. Thank you for sharing the pictures with us! Your stitching retreat looked like everyone was having a fabulous time. I am interested in knowing more about the white folding tables in the picture with some of the stitchers. Thanks!
