Trip to stitchville for some inspiration

Hello! Long time, no bloggy
With the warm weather, we have been doing yard work and riding the Harley, no time to stitch.
I'm very inspired now with a trip to Minnetonka, Minnesota, last weekend
with my Wisconsin friend Anna,

Tons of models, and as you can see many colorful fibers

And so it happens...there was a stitch in and we had a nice visit with Cathy, and Judy

Left to right, Cathy, me, Anna and Judy, it was great to see you gals
Next up is the stash enhancement...

Honeybee Hill by BBD w/ 30ct sheep's straw linen

Flatheads Embrace by The Primitive Needle w/ 40ct tin roof linen
I love the saying...
We are each
Of us angels
With one wing
And we can
Only fly
Embracing each other

Spooky Spirits of Tombstone Hill by Just Nan w/28ct thunderstorm linen

Live Laugh Love by Primitive Betty's, Besty's House by Plum Street Samplers,
36ct autumn gold linen for Buttons Black by Plum Street Samplers, 36ct vintage lentil linen for Thomas by Notforgotten Farms and some Kreinik for the Just Nan design
And lastly...

Spring Flowers Pinkeep by Stacy Nash kitted in the box
I've started stitching it to justify the price of it.
I didn't like the barn grey, it was too silverish, I wanted more blue so I traded it out with old blue paint thread

I haven't got any goodies in the mail lately, so I purchased these...

Happy Stitching!!!!
