The IH35 Stitchtogether on Saturday was loads of fun. We had our largest group yet in attendance -15 people! We had four new ladies, and Karen's DH hung out with us and he is a stitcher, too!
I spent a small part of the day doing a framing demonstration. I had my box of framing tools with me and showed everyone how to use them (and told everyone where to get them cheap). Later, DH showed Cindy's and Karen's DH's some of the finer points of frame assembly using man tools that he brought along.
We had lots of great food. Mary, our resident organic gardener, brought some of her bumper crop of "mutant" cherry tomatoes. DH and I brought some home and I ate a bowlful of them like grapes. There's nothing like a home-grown tomato for flavor.
And I got in a lot of stitching time this weekend, so I've made a lot of progress on "The Alamo." I've got a bush to finish on the left side, and then a big tree on right side needs stitching before I begin backstitching everything.
