Retreat Teaser Piccies

We are all just settling back in from a busy week! We had our very first CQI retreat and it was GREAT! Here from left to right is Gerry K, Debbie Q, Cathy K, ME and Janet P! Lauri and Gerry H had to head home early! (VERY SAD FACE here). If you click on this pic it will take you to my flickr account where the beginning pics are located. We are all in the process of consolidating our phots and will soon inundate the CQI blog with tales of our adventures and fun! It is sooooo very quiet here now I don't know quite what to do with myself! LOL!!!

beaded bell pull

Beads, beads, beads...... i'm crazy for beads! LOL!!! I am getting ready to teach a beaded embroidery class at the retreat this month and wanted to have a sample of stitch variations and such so I came up with a bell pull sampler and something for my wall all at the same time!! :_) Enjoy!!

Replacement Block

This is a block I stitched up for a friend in Nova Scotia whose first block for her rr with CQI decided to take a scenic trip.....somewhere! I wanted her to get something back home, so I decided to do this for her.
