Back From Stitches

Tired. Broke. Happy.

More to come but here are a couple of highlights:

I got to take a class with Nancy Bush and got to see and fondle all those vintages socks in real life.



At a booth promoting the Mother Bear Project, I saw my own bear as a "booth bear" before taking her trip to Africa:

LeftCoastKnitter was the enabler. Signature needles with stilletto tips. Too pretty and smooth to resist:


The long line to the Friday night Fashion Show. Like the line to get into Stitches. Or the Blue Moon Fiber Arts booth. Or the woman's room during the breaks. My lucky totem:


And I may, just may, finally have a few skeins of yarn to show off in upcoming YPFs!

I'm so glad you had fun! And you didn't even mention the quilting show. She's crafty, she's gets around.

I knew your bear would be a star-- she was the cutest at the shop, and she's still the cutest!

Aloha in <1 week. Mahalo.

Hey ther girlie! Too bad I didn't get to see you at Stitches:( I LOVE those new stiletto needles. I passed by that booth and meant to come back but got side tracked and then forgot! You saw these in person --which styles would you choose or want to own and why?

So glad you had fun, Can't wait tot see the rest of the loot:)

Wasn't stitches just fabulous!!! So glad we FINALLY met! Zonda will be so proud :) Of course, can we make this more than a once a year meetup for us :)

How cool that your bear was on display too! And, I've never been to the fashion show. I'll have to go to that one year. This year was a first for taking a class for me. Bet you learned a bunch from Nancy Bush.

Can't wait for some YPF!

Oh my! Love your loot! I am glad to hear that you had a great time. I am kind of glad that it is over because I needed to sleep. Yet, I am also sad, with nap breaks, I wish it could go on forever...

Oh, what fun! The class sounds perfect -- really, it sounds like you "did" it in the very best way. Nice bear!

Maybe some year I can do it too.
