Happy Hump day!!

Wednesday WIP day finish

Liberty by Prairie Moon, sorry! It's a OOP

I filled it with sawdust. I let it sit by my sewing machine for a few days, soooo scared to sew it.
But it was easier then I thought and also come out better then I ever expected

I forgot to add a shop down the road from The Stitchery Nook that we visited a few weeks ago

 Ewe and Eye Woolens and Such in Osage, Iowa

Rug hooking, punch needle and wool appliqué patterns and supplies

The models were awesome 

It was so I need another hole in my head, awwww what's one more, lol
I did buy some wool for finishing and a Stacy Nash kitted design
That's all for today 

Thanks for visiting

Retreat center

Happy May Day!!

Last weekend 7 of us stayed upstairs above The Stitchery Nook in Osage, Iowa. In a later post...when I was there I took pictures of the shop, there were others staying up there. Sherry showed us a little bit, but I didn't want to impose taking photos. 
Here's the upstairs, it sleeps up to 15, has four bathrooms, nice comfy chairs, well stocked kitchen with utensils,pans, and dishes, body soap and shampoo in the bathrooms, Ott lights, (table and floor) one with big magnifer. There is also a quilt shop and other shopping plus a fabulous restaurant like two doors down called Teluwat. 
We had a blast, I think we laughed more then anything. Thanks to Anna, Terry, Jackie, Lois, Julie and  Linda for a fabulous, recharging weekend
The kitchen is open to the right

The next photo is the big room, with only seven of us we stayed in the main room, 
We shared tables to stay close, ear reach of everyone and close to the food
Clearly everyone can have their own table, it is light and airy

It is newly remodeled, and a perfect place to stay. Liz and Sherry (owners of the upstairs and the shop)
are totally wonderful. We booked for next year already. 

I finally found Liberty at a shop in Elkader, Iowa, (pit stop on the way)
I kitted it up at The Stitchery Nook and even started it 

And still stitching on it

It's a cloudy lazy Sunday, time for a nap
