Camp Wannabe, Revisited

Just when you thought you'd heard the last about Camp Wannabe...I have more pictures! I saw Linda and Mary at Violet Threads and they were kind enough to let me photograph their goodies from Camp. So without any further mucking about:

This is the sewing bird ornament that Linda won from Meri.

In case you missed my previous Wannabe posts (here and here), Meri has been creating sewing bird designs and she brought a shoe box full to Camp. She held a drawing for our Camp and also one for the St. Louis Stitchers attending Camp Wannasew. It is difficult to tell in this atrocious photo (please pardon the glare!), but the sewing bird is fuzzy. So sweet!

Meri found some great bird fabric for the back, too.

Meri's finishing is just as fantastic as her designing and stitching. I want to be Meri when I grow up.

Mary won the slippers donated by the Silver Needle. The picture does not do them justice. They are beautifully beaded and the soles are soft and sweet on the feet.

Aren't they cute? Thanks again to Lindy and everyone at the Silver Needle for thinking of us Wannbe campers! Anne is going to have a fit when she sees these.

Thanks to everyone for your comments! To those of you still giggling at the reference to my socks, I wish I could remember where I picked that line up. It's not an original, because frankly I'm not nearly that funny. I wish. I'm glad it gave you a giggle! Giggle = Good.

In stitching news, I worked on Lady Violet again tonight. I have the house finished. I'll have to take a picture and share it soon. Now it's time to move on to the My Home Town SAL. I think it's time to frog the fish. *gulp*

Thank you for sharing the pictures of the sewing bird(love it)and the slippers(how cute). And, I'm sorry to hear that "frogging the fish" is inevitable.

Those slippers are downright cheerful! And I love the little fuzzy bird. What kind of thread was it stitched with?

Your trip to Paducah sounds great! Years ago I was lucky enough to have a color theory class with Eleanor Burns' sister. Got a lot of great hints.

Love the slippers!
