Well, I have unpacked my suitcase but I still haven't unpacked my stitching stuff so I can't yet show pictures of that. I can show you what I put in my exchange gift for the retreat. (we do a 'blind' gift exchange so you don't know what you will end up with! lots of fun!)
I made a needlebook and pillowcase
The pillowcase is folded - it really does fit a regular size pillow. I always take my pillow with me when I travel and when I found this fabric I got enough to make two pillowcases - one for me and one for my gift box. (mine has pink fabric where the blue is on this one)
I also fixed up a stitching box to match
Inside with magnet on inside of lid
and filled it with a few goodies. Then I put it all in the 'book' it is leaning against. I need to go back and get one of those 'books' for myself to put some of the stuff I keep around my stitching chair in when I'm not using it.
Maybe my next week I will have unpacked the rest of my stuff and can show you what I got in the gift exchange, what I bought (actually, not much) and the projects we got to work on.
Have a great weekend!
