June Stitching Retreat

I stopped at the Temecula Hobby Lobby (I'm frankly unimpressed, and really prefer not to do business with businesses which aren't open when I'm not working) and The Stamping Post on the way to the retreat center. I chose to work on counted cross stitch pieces all weekend.

I started with the piece I worked on at our first retreat, back in November last year. This first photo shows the progress at the start of this retreat:
Here's how far I got before I moved to something else:
Then I chose to work on Hannah Beeby for a while. Once again, the first photo shows the progress at the start of the session:
And the little bit I did before switching to another piece:
I also did a bit of stitching on another Quaker sampler, but didn't take before and after pics of that one. I also didn't take a "before" picture of Margaret's Spot Sampler before I pulled it out, but I did take an "after" picture before we packed everything up Monday afternoon:
The stitching on this one consisted of adding another leaf motif or two and the two motifs and two letters in the interior.

Is it November yet? I'm ready for another one!!
