Sad day

I was deeply saddened to hear the tragic loss of Lori from http://www.theprimitiveneedlehome.com/
She will be greatly missed by the stitching community. She was one of my favorite designers.
My Prayers and Thoughts go out to her family
On a better note...
I was invited to spend a day of stitching on Sunday at the http://www.inspiredneedle.com/ with blogging friend Laura. She is such a sweetie and all the ladies gave me a warm welcome. It was my very first time that I ever stitched with anyone and it won't be my last time, it was so fun and inspiring, I really can't explain it!
I met some stitchers that are bloggers too Karin, Teresa, and Patti.
This is Linda that just got back her framed piece by Chessie and Me, Mighty Oaks Sampler
Beautiful stitching!!!

That's the only picture I have to share. I didn't want to take a photo of someone who didn't want it posted on a blog. I don't plan on getting stuck with needles my next stitching visit, lol

I did some stashing too

Sunday night after I got home I started on BBD Gathering Basket with 30ct Espresso

I finished stitching block 4 of Houses of HRH

And here is my new cherished book, I can keep going back and finding something different each time I look at it.

Happy Stitching!!!!

A very sad day indeed, Lisa and her lovely designs will certainly be missed.

Nice stash - that C&M framed sampler is very pretty!

Beautifull pictures and stash you have

I just ran across your blog. I live near Little Rock, AR and read where you visited a shop called Shepherd's Needle. I have lived here a long time and have never heard of that shop. Can you tell me where it is located?
Also wondering if you are the same lady I met on 123 mb sometime last year or the year before. Your dh was fishing a tournament at Lake DeGray. Small world if you are the same lady. BTW..I enjoyed your blog.

Lisa will be greatly missed and my prayers are with her and her family.

Excellent stash haul--I especially love that last pick with the needlebook.

Such a tragic event :o( I left a comment on her Blog.

Great stash and congrats on your finish!

There is nothing better than getting together with a group of stitchers. Can't believe that was the first time for you! Nice progress on all your stitching.

Laura said...

I just returned home from our Tuesday night stitch. We missed you and I am so glad you could come last Sunday.

I am still in shock about Lisa. I am praying for her family. I can't even imagine how painful it is for them. It just does not seem real. She was really a great designer and it sounds like she was a very lovely person too.

Love all your stash! You got a lot done on the bird since Sunday!!! Talk soon.

Laura said...

p.s. Block 4 is so gorgeous!!!

I'm so sorry to hear about Lisa.

Stitching circles are the best! I'm so glad you finally got to go to one.

Sally said...

It makes you realise just how fragile life is. Such a tragic loss. My thoughts are with her family.

Lovely stitching and very nice stashing too! I'm patiently waiting for my BBD book to arrive!

So glad you had a great experience stitching with a group - if you find a good one it's a wonderful resource and something to look forward to for sure. that was very sad news about Lisa's passing - she will be missed and my heart goes out to her family and friends. Melody

Karin said...

Hi Ranae!! It was great meeting you Sunday! I hope you can make it to many more Sunday Stitching days!!

I am sure no one in our group minds photos taken off and published....Laura is doing it all the time LOL

Yes it has been a sad week and I am heart broken over the loss of Lisa. She was a wonderful woman and I will cherish the memories of her in the couple of round robins I did with her over the years and email groups I was in with her.


Suzanne said...
