Beauty in Simplicity

I have made it home after a very long stretch of being away.  It was soooooo good to see my boys (hubby included) and furbabies.  The retreats went well and I enjoyed meeting so many fellow stitchers.  I hope I was able to make everyone feel welcome and comfortable at the retreat.  The foliage was beautiful most of the week.  These first couple of pictures were taken from across the lake of the Enfield Shaker museum.  We only had a couple of days of rain.  I have also included a picture of the project that Belinda of Blue Ribbon Designs created for the May 2010 retreat.  I stitched this one twice.  Once for me and once for the shop.  I think she captured the essence of the museum and surroundings in her piece.


I am off to catch up on household things and will be back soon.  I have so many things to share with you but it will have to come after I take care of the house.  Happy Stitching!!

Thanks for sharing pictures of your time in NH! What gorgeous scenery! I love the piece that Belinda created for your retreat in 2010 along with this year's treasure. That miniature chair is precious!

Glad you enjoyed the retreat. I saw some of the lovely scenery on Belinda's blog as well. It looks like a lovely spot for a retreat. Belinda's design is very fitting and I'm sure the ladies had fun stitching it.

This is my first visit to your blog, I love it. Hope you have some time to visit mine. Love the East coast of the USA my husband and I were in Maine and NH last year at this time to celebrate our anniversary. So beautiful in October with all the leaves and their colours.

Your retreat pieces are gorgeous! I should get mine and work on them. They are too pretty to lie in the UFO pile. Wish I could have been there to see the beautiful trees.
