Yesterday was beautiful...I love the sun and the mountains but have to admit to worrying about our next fire season. Poor Southern California has already started their fire season and it is January!!! I am hoping for more SNOW!!! 

 I had a wonderful afternoon with Anne of Cottons 'n Wool...our intention was to stitch. But, we ended up talking up a storm and going through my project list.  It was wonderful and has made me even more committed to my 2014 plan!

Last November I was excited to learn that the Stitch Society had arrived at the Stitchin' Post in Sisters.  Tamra was the moderator and she is a gem of a teacher...organized and fun.  Because of my schedule I had to sign up by mail.  In December a very heavy box arrived filled with patterns and templates in what I anticipate to be a great wool adventure.

At the suggestion of another class member I took my stitch pages to the local XPress and had them spiral bound.  I love the ease of spiral binding those books that you use a lot.

The slide show is filled with my classmates work and the Stitchin' Post.  Enjoy!  Have a great weekend and see you back here on Monday.
