A week ago today i Michele and I flew into Tulsa OK for the Blackbird Designs class that the Silver Needle was hosting. We got there a couple days earlier so we can do a little sightseeing as well. We did go to Jenks and do a little antiquing. We ran across a few "frogs", alot of cast iron irons, but i only got one of those as they were quite pricey, but not the one i got. :-) and a few little molds to use for pincushions.
here is myself and Michele at the Silver Needle
And here is a pic of myself, Joan and Michele. It was great to meet Joan and Cathy!! we didn't get a picture with Cathy though. :(
here is my little haul from antiquing in Jenks, not bad considering that coral frog is a color i have been trying to hunt down. :-)
On Thursday morning, Michele and I opened up the Silver Needle and WOW! models stitched up everywhere. Everywhere you turned in the shop there were more models. Alot of over one stitching and i love over one stitching. We were also told to make sure we visited the bathroom. ok, we know when we have to go. LOL But it was because there were also shop models in the bathroom that were for sale.
Friday we took a box finishing class with Mona. That was alot of fun and will be seeing more of these little boxes in my future. I haven't taken a pic of mine as of yet, but will soon. Also on Friday was stitching with all the gals that were there for class, dinner with everyone including Barb & Alma, etc. We were all very spoiled by Lindy of the Silver Needle, as on our tables for dinner were little goodie bags filled with Vera Bradley goodies. And on Saturday as well. :)
I did do alot of damage in the shopping area. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. :-) As you can tell by the last picture, i really liked the little magnetic organizer, so i got one in green and one in hollywood pink. :)
