Back from Retreat

The retreat was phenomenal, the presenter extraordinary, the topic the Upper Room.  The retreat was so good that i was too tired at the end of each day to do more than a row or two of stitching.

I realize, like every stitcher, I over packed but even allowing for that, I did way less than expected.  When I left, the Town Square Pet Store looked like this.  And all I managed to stitch while on retreat was the grey wall below the cat's window and half the grey wall below the dog's window.

Today, it is done but only because I did the rest yesterday evening and this morning before work.  I have started on the knitting shop, Flocking to Knit.  This will finish up my annual goal of stitching one Town Square ornament a month in 2014, bringing me to a grand total of 28 of these charts stitched over the past three years.  Please forgive the wonky photo, I didn't take the time to iron the linen.

Progress is progress, no matter how much or how little--something I need to remind myself of on a regular basis!

Retreats are wonderful!

Congrats on the cute finish Regina. I bought the CD but have never stitched any of them.

The Upper Room... can't recall any teachings on that... Bet it was terrific! No one expects to get anything done at a retreat! Keep rolling, you will reach that goal!
