Stitching On The Lake

Well today I stitched and ate and chatted with some really lovely ladies (thanks Lee, Shirley, Penne and Stella for your company) at the biannual Stitching on the Lake day, hosted once again by the wonderful Sylvia and Fiona . . .

(from the stitching day in May, with thanks to Sylvia for the photo as I didn't take any pics myself today)
On arrival we were each greeted with a goodie bag with starter kits for 6 - yes 6! - projects. Now, I've finally learned from past experience that with all the eating and chatting going on, the likelihood of getting a project finished on the day is pretty slim, so I just chose my project and started stitching.

No deadline.

No stress.

Just relaxing and stitching.

I decided on the "Oh Christmas Tree" stitchery, which is just lovely in real life, very delicate and the leaves remind me of filigree. Lots of chain stitch and lazy daisies on this tree, which I think I will frame over a canvas.

I know it doesn't look like I did too much, but I did stitch all day - I promise!

I won't get this finished tonight, or maybe even this weekend, but one thing I do know - I am enjoying the process with this project, just stitching for pleasure. And really, isn't that what it's all about?

Nothing could be better than sitting around and sewing with friends. It is spring there by the lake?
