IHSW 3.0 Report and Spring Retreat 2012

This weekend was another International Hermit and Stitch Weekend.  I signed up even though I knew I wouldn't be stitching alone all weekend.

This weekend was also the annual Knowledge and Needles Spring retreat.

I arrived a little early and set my spot up.  I decided to start on my summer mandala as progress for Hermit weekend.  This is where I got during my alone time
Lots started eh! lol  Unfortunately I realized Saturday afternoon that I actually started Autumn and not Summer... so a frogging I went.  Oh well at least I didn't have much done!

After people starting arriving, I went back to spring.

 Before I left for home today this is where I am at.

I did manage to "hermit" again for a bit this afternoon, and this is where I'm at tonight

So all in all got a good amount of stitching done, but not much alone ;)

Retreat was great as usual and here are some pics of the finished work that was displayed
