World's Biggest Stocking-- Updated

I realized that I started with the wrong color, want it red, white and blue not Blue, white and red so frogged and restarted it with red.
Just started my square for the World's Biggest stocking. I'm using Red, White and Blue Caron United Yarn for it. You can click on the link on my sidebar or click on #‎worldsbiggeststocking‬ to find out how you can join in to.
Hope you have a Blessed Week!

Working on stuff and a Finish........

Mystery CAL
 Yippy I got the Mystery CAL finished. I'm very happy with the way it turned out. Now I have to put the Lily Pond CAL on hold while I get ready for my Cross Stitch Retreat in June. I'm making a bunch of surprises for everyone, there are going to be 41 of us there.
 Plus I have to stitch this for the gift exchange.
Stitched gift
 Also have to do prep work for the retreat got the kit in the mail today. Waiting on my new thread holder to get here so I can sort the floss.
Retreat kit
 The fabric is 28count so not sure I will be able to see the holes to stitch it if not I have some other fabric I can choose from but, if I can will be using this greenish one instead of the brown they sent.
Other fabric
I am so looking forward to this, I've always wanted to go on a retreat but they are normally to far away for me to get there. So this is an early BDay present for me this year. My Bday is the 16th of June and the retreat is the 5th thru 7th.
Well I hope everyone has a Blessed Mother's Day tomorrow and a great week.

Wow it is May...

Lily Pond Step 2
Well been busy crocheting on Lily Pond got 1 of the blocks done in Step 2 to make sure I could do it by reading the pattern then went back and started Step 1 waves. I love this yarn but it is very thin compared to what I'm used to using.

 I'm still working on Moonshine but it is on hold for now because I've been busy will get caught up on it and the Vacation BOM soon.
 Still working on the mystery also on clue 9 one more clue to finish before May 14th.

Belinda Studio's Event Day 2...picture heavy

 So on Saturday we had the Stump work class. Here is me with my machine.  We are making a flower you use fabric & Mylar and wire to make it. I used a veragated thread in mine.

 Here is Belinda at my machine showing us how to do the part that puts all the petals together, it is part of the design.
 Then she used my flower to show us how since the wire is in it you can bend the petals anyway you want.
 She took this picture of me and my flower for her website.
 This is the front and back of my finished flower.
 It was also Belinda's Birthday so the LQS got her a cake and we all sang Happy Birthday to her.
She is coming back in May for more classes I can't wait. You can go to this link Belinda Studios to see if she has a class near you. It is well worth the price and you have a wonderful time too.
Have a Blessed Week!

Belinda Studio's Event Day 1... picture heavy

 Last weekend I spent at my LQS for the Belinda Studio's Event.
 We had a class where we did the fishy up top on Friday. I'm making mine into a small bag instead of a pillow. We used Mylar and Angelina fibers in it. Then we had a demo on cording with your embroidery machine.
 On Thursday we had a trunk show, she has so many lovely designs.

These are only some of them the rest are still on my phone.
Next post will be the class we took Saturday.
