Perfect Weekend

Waiting at the airport
 Off to Amy's for a Rent Amy Day with four bestest friends!  We had the best time hanging around Amy's Golden Strand in Memphis with Amy, Jill, and the other lovely ladies at the store.

Summer Homes on the Pond by Ewe and Eye

I took this piece.  Amy came up with the perfect stitches and the perfect threads.  While I waited my turn at the store and during the slumber party in my room, I stitched on my Painted Pony SMU mini-angel.

I came home with a couple of other things.  

Valentine's Heart from Melissa Shirley

Skinny bald doctor from Rogue Needlepoint

It was a wonderful weekend and over all too soon.  More to follow.


  1. I know it was great! Your pieces look wonderful and I can't wait to hear details!

  2. Hi Steph,
    Sounds like you had a great time. Great new canvases.

  3. It was great. Can't wait to go back in 2014. Amy booked until then!

  4. Glad you girls had a terrific weekend. '-) Perhaps we can meet for lunch soon?????

  5. What is the name of that dog canvas? I'm in love!

    1. It's called Walking the Dog and Amy has done a stitch guide for it. Do you know how to look at her stitch guide catalog at

  6. You lucky girl. Welcome back and it looks like you have a lot of stitching to do.

  7. So glad you had a great time! I love the Melissa Shirley heart. Can't wait it hear more about your adventure in Memphis!

  8. This makes me really ready for my stitching retreat in a few weeks. Around 30 of us head to an abbey about an hour away and stitch from Thursday afternoon through Sunday afternoon. We have a large stitching room in the same building as our sleeping arrangements and we can come and go, stitch, eat and sleep as we want. It is a wonderful weekend to get away and have a blast. I am so ready! Looks like you had a great time as well.
