WIPocalypse 2012

Hi there! So weekly blogging is starting to be a normal thing for me again and I'm loving it. I've been trying to fit in a little blog reading and commenting time too which is definitely inspiring. Hope everyone has had a good week so far. Had to work last weekend so not much stitching time but I got some in yesterday and hope to get some more in this weekend with IHSW. Been bad about participating this year but I'm getting back in track. Going to stick with the Halloween piece since its about at the halfway point now...

In other news, made it to the LNS for fabric for 4 (yes, 4!) birth announcements that I owe to my cousins for 2 kids already here and 2 more coming between now and February. The two brothers already here are going to get the same design and if I like it the others might too. I'll share info on that when I get going on those.

Outside the stitchy world, bike riding is going very well and I think Josh will be all set for our camping trip next month. The reusable lunch bags I mentioned last post seem to be working well so far though I have yet to test them in the dishwasher.

One last stitchy thing- the 2014 Nordic Needle retreat. I'm going. Don't know anyone else going but I don't think I really care. Sounds like an awesome experience and opportunity to learn some new techniques and the equally awesome husband says do it so I did. Been wanting to do something like this for awhile so I'm pretty excited about the chance to go. If you are planning on going or have been to past retreats I'd love to hear about it and/or try to meet up with you in April. Let me know in comments or shoot me an email at justanotherflamingo@yahoo.com. Oh and if you haven't heard about it or want to register you can download the official registration packet here.

Your stitching sure pops on that bright orange fabric!

I've never been to a stitching (or any other) retreat...hope it works out to be a fun time for you!
