Camp Stitch-A-Lot!!

Well... here it is time to take off for the annual 'Camp Stitch-A-Lot'! My stitching bag is packed, my name tag is done (such as it is!), and I'm ready for a week-end away! I guess I'll have to pack a suitcase too!

Here is the front of my name tag:



And the back...



I was having a terrible time sewing it together this year... It's a little crooked... oh well, most of the time I'm a little off balance, too! It has a pocket on the back to hold my room key, or whatever.

I only have one fiber and one chart on my 'must purchase' list. But, I am taking my 'wish list' with me! I'm signed up for two classes. I so look forward to this every year!!

Thank you all so much for your generous comments on the Red work exchange. They are much appreciated...

Very cute name tag. Have a wonderful time at camp. However, you neglected to say what the fiber and pattern were that were on your must get list, now I'll have to wonder until you get back. :(
Looking forward to hearing all about the wonderful stash you get.

That is the most adorable nametag -- did you design it? And the pocket on the back is a super idea, and one I'll have to try to remember!

Lelia said...

Hey Myrna: Tell all about your camp -- I saw your post re. stash enhancing. WOW. You go girl!

Hi! My name is Courtney and I've been reading your blog - and I love it! Your work is amazing!

I was looking through your stitching albums and I noticed that you had finished the Bent Creek Stoneware Wishes. Would you be interested in selling the patterns? I've been looking all over for them, and they've been sold out! Thanks!

That's a cute way to finish your name tag. I'm doing something similar for a retreat I'm going to in June. :)
