Hoosier Retreat

So I obviously am so busy I forgot to post I made it home from the PALs trip. We got home just fine Saturday after just missing the snow storm that hit the east coast. The town we stayed in Thursday night had a warning for Friday. We made it to Ohio Friday night and then home Saturday about noon. Fred and Izzy were very very happy to see us. I spent the weekend sitting on the couch loving on my dog and watching TV shows on the DVR. I was so far behind. Then came Thursday which meant I was off again. This time I went about an hour from home to my local stitching retreat. Here is where we stayed at...

This is Barbee Christian Church Camp in Leesburg, IN. The best part is it was an old Al Capone hideout. We did have one really freaky thing happy. We were tea dying fabric and a face showed up on the fabric. We found a picture of Al Capone and it totally looked the same! It was really really creepy. It was a little small but it did just fine for the little group we had this time. I was planning on trying so hard to finish my HAED Pirate Dragon and guess what...

It's done. Only took me 7 years of course in that time I put it down a lot. This past year I've worked really hard on it though and I'm so excited to have a HAED finished!!! What a great feeling. Of course I already have another one in the process and 1 I want to start soon. I've decided I will have a large one and a quick stitch going. I think I will do a month rotation on each one. I'll have to see what happens. That way I make progress on each one. It was so neat to finish this piece with all my local stitching friends. They whooped and yelled for me and one lady even videoed it so I could relive the moment over and over. Then I started a new piece that I found in a magazine and finished it Sunday. Here is the pic of it...

I just had to do this one of course haha. If you know me at all you know I love my doggies!!! Well I'm going to try to keep up more. Now my life should be settling down. At least I really really hope it does.


  1. Congratulations, Katie, on your finishes, especially your HAED. That is a great accomplishment and the dragon is so cute.

  2. Congrats on the finish, Katie! I wish I could have been at retreat. I really missed everyone!

  3. Congrats on both your finishes, Katie. I read about the retreat on Debra's blog. It sounded like so much fun. I wished I could've attended, but graduation got in the way. LOL

  4. Congrats on the finish! Sounds like you had lots of fun at the retreat.
