Today the sun is finally shining in Branson...........we are hoping for at least a week of sunny days. The shop is still topsy, turvy from our flooding..............we had to use shop vacs to get the water out of the shop, again. We did some drainage improvements outside, so hopefully that will work for us.
I have some WIPs to show you.......... Little House new Sampler ornament - Peace, Kathy Barrick's Autumn on Lazy Bear Mountain, A Boston Band Sampler Reproduction from Needlework Press, and Pam has just started The Raven Queen from Mirabelia.
Our classes for September's Stitching in the Heartland are starting for fill up, so if you are interested in taking a class, please let us know. Some of our classes have limits as to how many students can be enrolled. We are really looking forward to this event!! Our teachers are fantastic and several have exclusive designs, just for our event! Pat Carson will be our guest of honor for the whole event. She will be in the retreat room several times during the weekend to offer advice and stitching techniques. Pat has studied with teachers from all over the world and she is so willing to share her knowledge and love of stitching!
We are all looking forward to our Ice Cream Social on Wednesday evening.......it will be a casual dessert and coffee time. Our teachers and vendors will be there for a meet and greet with all of our attendees.There will definately be chocolate there!!
Got to go, it was fun to share some of our WIPs with you - hope you enjoyed seeing them. Have a good week!
