This retreat the "Fun Girls", as my friends Jenny, Barbie and I are called (we were dubbed by Ann from R&R at a previous retreat), were in the track with the teachers: Shepherd's Bush, R&R, and The Thread Gatherer. Our projects are fabulous and I can't wait to finish them (will post those pictures when I'm finished).
I was able to show the gals from Blackbird Designs some of my "enhanced" work. Two pieces I "tweaked" of their's. They were impressed and told me I was ready to do some designing of my own! It was like receiving permission to go ahead and do it!!!! What have I been waiting for?
Here is a picture of a design of my own that I made up as gifts for my Fun Girl stitching sisters (didn't show Blackbird these...don't know why?):
Spent yesterday charting out another design idea. I'm on my way!!!!!!
