More Retreat Photos

Here are a few more photos from the fabulous Retreat I attended a couple of weekends ago! Called "Stitching at the Water's Edge", it was an absolutely beautiful way to spend a couple of days! Kim's mother and her friend stitched gifts for every one of the 66 ladies who attended - some received stitched needlecases (me) and some these lovely bags! This is one of Leanne Beasley's patterns! Isn't the fabric gorgeous?

This is a section of one of Leanne's quilts - just beautiful!

And some more of Leanne's embroidered pincushions scattered on the table!

And this gorgeous bag was made by one of the ladies at our table! She had lots of fun decorating - earings, ribbons and bows, tassels, glasses and jewels! Loved this bag! As you can see, I came home very inspired to do lots and lots of lovely things!


  1. Everything you showed is beautiful. Love the oin cushions and the bag with the ladies in it is wonderful and very creative.

  2. Gorgeous - You ladies are all sooooo talented ;)

  3. Oh my I;m drooling..lol! What a fabulous selection of gorgeous goodies.

  4. I think it's so amazing that there would be a gift for everyone - what sweethearts you stitch with! As for the "ladies" bag, I WANT THAT!!! It's such a hoot!
