New Jersey Needlefest and a few finished items

Yesterday was the annual autumn New Jersey Needlefest hosted and coordinated in full style by Susan Hoekstra.  My husband came along as cashier and photographer.  He thought this panorama was really cool, me hmmm not so sure.  Yes I know I should have been taking pictures but I'm more live in the moment than document and not look at again.  It was a really good day and Susan created an atmosphere of unsurpassed camaraderie.  Missed it this time? look for the next one in April I believe.

that's me across the room as a group from Bergen County were all doing this unbelievable counted canvas work piece by Threedles, each to their own color choices.  Skill, attention and dedication not capable of many yet to see a whole group of them!  For example the chart included Jessica's done on 18 count in Flair, that will separate the men from the boys.

Not interested in looking at a room of middle aged women?  Here's some items that have recently come back from various finishers.
