Wow what a great weekend! Not only was it time for the IHSW, which I quite enjoy when I get to participate properly, stay home and stitch lots! This weekend I wasn't at home, but I was with like-minded friends! Stitchers at the Knowledge and Needles January Retreat.

Mary (no picture, sorry) brought this little box and said including the box and ribbon there was 52 items. We had until Saturday evening to come up with our guesses. It was a small box, and I got 28 out of the 52 items. We had a lot of fun with this!
Sous, sous Chef Simon reading us the menu in his best military voice
Of course there are always a lot of fantastic finished pieces on display!
Both of these are Lianne's first framed pieces for her home!
