My first bourse

Here is a quick post:

I have just finished my first bourse.
I just love it and it was pretty fun to sew.

Now I have to get back to some sewing and stitching projects.

Hopefully I will post a little later this week.

Keep Stitching!

Retreat, scissors, biscornu's and a grandson

I have been meaning to post since I got home from retreat but as usual life has gotten in the way. Here is a picture of everyone who attended.

We all had a great time. I got plenty of stitching done but had a bad food and lack of sleep hangover!!!! Here are some pictures of what I got done, before finishing. I also finished stitching a couple of things for the exchanges I am in, those you will see sometime later.

Since getting home from retreat, the Stitching Squad have been waiting to purchase the new gingher scissors - Bianca. We have not seen them in our local Joann's, so one the the girls--Jackie made arrangements with an online shop "Silent Stitcher" and at our last gathering on Friday night we all received our newest scissors. The shop had each scissor wrapped individually, and we were all excited!!

And here are the coveted Bianca's:

Do you think I have a scissor addiction?
And this is not all of my scissors. The Stitching Squad does have Scissor Anonymous meetings but all they really accomplish is deciding we need more scissors. Just because we like to collect them.

I also wanted to post some of the Biscornu's that I have stitched and finished.
And lastly here is another reason I have not been able to post, my grandson,daughter and son-in-law from Tennessee has been home and we have been spending time with him. Of course he is the cutest baby there is:)
So there is the update for now. Hopefully it won't be so long until the next post.

Have a great Thanksgiving and keep stitching.

First Post!

Welcome to my blog. The reason my blog is called the "Stitching Squad" is because my cronies and I gather on Friday night and... stitch. This has been a 10 year tradition (and counting).

My latest stitching passion has been creating "smalls." Here is a collection of my Scissor Fobs that I've stitched in the last two months.
