WIPocalypse

I missed the May WIPocalypse check in. So here is a summary of what's been going on since April 15th.

Cut Thru Ship -- Worked on 2 days
99 -- Worked on 1 day
Summer -- Worked on 2 days
Let's go to the Beach -- Worked on 4 days and finished!!
Non stitching days -- a shocking 53 days!!!!!

So you can tell I've been doing a lot more no stitching than stitching but I'm back at it. Thursday I picked up Let's go to the Beach and my needles finally took off again. I think I needed an almost new start. I had worked on it in Feb. Here is where I was then...
Here it is after last night's finish...
This piece was also on my Turtle Trot list so I will replace it with another one. Now let's see what the WIPocalypse question was for this time... Have you ever been to a stitch gathering such as a retreat or a festival? If so, tell us about it! Yes I have been. I'm in a local Indiana group called Hoosier Stitchers. We have yearly get togethers and I've always really enjoyed them. It's so much fun to get together with people who love the same hobby and I've learned so much. I was then in another group and we got together a few times. One time I traveled to Arkansas even to attend the retreat. It was fun but a difference of opinions ended with me leaving that group. A few years ago some friends were talking about PALs. It's in Myrtle Beach, SC. I had never been there and we LOVE the ocean. So I told Mom there is a retreat on the ocean and off we went. It's been a blast. I've been there 3 times now and already have my spot paid for this coming year. I think I'm off to stitch. The mojo is back!
