Well, I've been back a couple of days actually, but am just now getting caught up! My trip to Austin with my ANG group (the Lake Houston chapter) was fantastic. We were hosted by Colleen at her shop, The Needle Works. Not only was she on hand for help with our canvases, she even cooked for us too-- talk about a full-service shop! I had a great time visiting with and meeting some of our more far-flung members and actually got a good bit of stitching done too. I only started one or two new projects, worked on my ANG program project and most excitingly, finished my canvas for the Stitching Games, woo-hoo! Here it is:
I'm very happy with the way it turned out. I hope to post it again here soon, only finished. I'm planning on my favorite, a boxed stand up with a huge bow-topper and crazy feet. Also, I will write up a stitch guide for it and share it here with you all, hopefully by the end of the year.
