No stitching of late. More camping.

Went to my LNS and picked up the JCS Halloween Magaizine, and a Judys Boo Boo Stick. I used a one that a friend had and was extremely impressed by it's ablity to remove the threads after the dreaded frog.

Hope all is well with you all,

Salty Yarns Spring Retreat


Spent the weekend in Ocean City Maryland at the Salty Yarns Spring Retreat. Drove down the ocean with my BFF Stitcher Sandy  on Thursday (stopped at the Queenstown Outlets and the OC Walmart) on our way in.  It was Springfest also in Ocean City. Sandy and I walked down to the inlet and walked around springfest. Went again on Friday morning with our other Stitcher friends.Had a great time. Taught my BFF how to knit she is getting the hang of it.  . Friday night was lasagna and the stitchers welcome reception. Friday a cross stitch picture that Judy B had organized 73 people to stitch a part of the design was presented to Sally and Sara. It hangs in the lobby of the hotel.  Saturday we walked the boardwalk, had subway and did some stitching. Shopping at Salty Yarns (cross stitch patterns and of course yarn) On Sunday up and did some stitching before we headed home. what a Great Weekend. Will be going back to Salty Yarns again for the Stitchers Jamboree in Oct! to work tomorrow.

Hope you all are able to stitch. Til next time, Sue n MD

Sunday checkin

Hi, been reading, A Walk in the Park by Jill Mansell. Picked up at the library on the new books shelf.
Last timeI blogged I told you I was attempting knitting, week I am knitting I believe now. Still practicing .....was making a scarf but it was way to wide. Took it  all out yesterday and started on 20 stitches wide. Still having consistency problems but still persevering.  Here is a pic of what i have completed so far.

DH and I have busy working on our performance write ups for work.  Not much else going on regular chores etc. Weekend almost over back to work tomorrow. I hope the weather people are wrong about the freezing rain in the morning. Will make the commute unpleasant. Hope you are able to stitch or do needlework. Til next time,

Sunday night check in

Been stitching and practicing how to cast on for knitting. Bought myself knitting needles and some yarn bee chrysalis yarn to make a ruffle scarf. However thought it was best to learn basic knitting with some basic yarn I had at home. Can't get knitting yet but can cast on. I will persevere and learn how to make my first stitch this week. Looking at videos and reading my idiots guide to knitting. Here is the pic of stitching today trying to sit down each day and put in some stitches. It does not stitch itself ....LOL. I really enjoy it when I take the time. Hope all is well with you and you are able to stitch soon. Til next time, Sue in MD
