A quick peek of September's events

Below is a picture of the finished piece from the Reticello Workshop I took with Diane Clements. Now this is Diane's piece and with some luck mine might look similar to this someday!!!
Below is a shot of the necklace made by Laura who taught the "Beaded Beads" class, again someday mine might look like this.
Here is a picture of some of the gals that I stitched with when I lived in Miami, Florida. All of us have moved except one who still lives and works in Miami. It was great fun having everyone meet up at the Bulloch Hall Needlework Exhibit in Atlanta (Roswell).
This is a shot of my piece (the one on the left) Beatrix Potter that was displayed in Bulloch Hall.
Since this is still busy, busy September, I have very little time to show you my progress on the beading and reticello pieces, but will hopefully be able to get that done this weekend.

This week I am working at the LNS to help out the owner, then off to Columbus on Friday for stitching with friends there. On Thursday nite I will stop at the local knitting shop and pick up my packet to knit a scarf for "Breast Cancer". There is lots going on, just wishing the speeding train will slow down a bit so I can catch my breath.

Thanks for stopping by - will catch up with you all hopefully this weekend.

Sounds like you're having lots of fun Roberta! The projects you have shown are amazing. It must have been so fun to see your Beatrix Potter sampler on exhibit! Nice group of friends you have.

Hi Roberta! It has been a while and I thought I would stop in for a visit and to say hello. I was thinking of you as I was looking at my beautiful pincushion you made me for our autumn days swap. I see you are enjoying being around other stitchers. That is always so inspiring. The project looks beautiful. And your BP sampler is wonderful. Perfectly framed too.

Hugs ~
Heidi

Roberta,
What lovely pictures. Thanks for sharing your recent activities with us. I love the Reticello needlebook and can't wait to see yours. It's pretty stunning I have to say. I love the Beatrix Potter too.
Warm hugs Angela
