Come join us at Celebration of Needlework, Midwest

It seems like I have just finishing unpacking and doing laundry from our wonderful cruise to Alaska and it is time to repack again for Celebration of Needlework this week in St. Louis/St. Charles Missouri. We scrambled to get the boxes ready - thankfully I had class materials all ready! I have several things to share, one is from Don Henrickson who won first prize at the Utah State fair with 'Strawberry Stitches', congratulations Don! Another award winner is Pat Rusch from California who won best sampler at ANG with 'My Stitching Album'! Congratulations to Pat. And Barb Kneller finished the North to Alaska Sampler as well on the weekend, way to go Barb, awesome.

Finally I downloaded my pictures into my computer from the trip and they turned out well. Lots of good memories, I didn't do very well at taking pictures of the salmon running in the streams but you can see a blob of red! I only have a tail out of the water with whale watching and I was in the rest room when my husband and others saw the bear and cubs so  I don't have that either!! Imagine! But I do have one of some of the stitchers on the White Pass Train into the Yukon from Skagway and one of Dale and I on our float plane ride out of Ketchikan, which was just terrific!
