Here are photos of both the front and back of the The Director's Cut top that Louise wore one of the days of the retreat.   She demonstrated how to accurately place and match motifs using one of the attendee's projects.    This top is just stunning.    I was wearing the sleeveless top from the My Hearts A'Flutter pattern today with white pants and two women stopped me to tell me how much they liked it.  Here's a link to the photos of that one in white with blue woven stripes, placing them on the bias at the bottom.

Yay, Razel.  Check your PMs, I'm sending you one now. We also have a rather newly formed Tampa Bay sewing meetup.  I'll send you some details. K

I am interested.  I live in Clearwater and knit as well as sew.  I will also pass the info on to a couple of my friends. Glad you posted here as I read this forum more than Ravelry.  None of us would be able to come on September 25th as it is a Jewish holiday.  I can come in October 24th.

Rene, please don't go!  I think most of us got your request, I did mention just the past day or so that my room looks worse instead of better, but it is because I am moving things around. I think most people have avoided before photos, and there are very few afters.  I agree, it is disheartening to know that it will take me a month to get things tidy enough for a bonafide "after" picture, when I see others do it in a focused day, but I don't want to see you leave because of that.  Let's just assume there are a lot of lucky people who don't need weeks to fix things, and want instant feedback, and let it go. 'Kay?  I've also learned, through years of SG, that sometimes people post in threads but don't quite read through (or digest)the stuff written before, or sometimes they just really need feedback.  We want you here.   ;D   K

Nice work Ann. It is easier to work in a tidy space.

Could I ask everybody a favor please? Save the after photos until near the end of September/ October 1st. I for one start feeling like it's a competition- one I'll definitely lose, BTW- when I see those pics too soon. I'm always slow, have a lot to do to create a space, and my health currently prevents me from doing much. It sucks, and I'm already depressed enough right now. Thanks for considering it.


Well, that was wasted time I guess on my part. Here it is, late afternoon on Sept 1st, and we have after photos being posted already. Or again, whichever. I mean, how nice for you, truly, sincerely, but it works as reverse incentive for some of us. For me, it makes me feel like this is pointless. I already knew I wouldn't get much done, compared to many of you, and that was OK.  But now, day one, and some of you are done. Show me what it looks like September 30th, or 20th even. Or tell us how you are progressing throughout the month, so we feel camaraderie in the journey. I for one find that to be one of the most wonderful parts of Stitcher's Guild. That and how kind and thoughtful Kareendee always is.  :)

 I don't mean to be raining on your parade Ann. I'm glad you have the energy and had the time this past week to clean up.

I'll be stepping away from this thread now.

Oh, interesting, ss!   I always get the Madagascar vanilla but I might try the sampler next time.

Ann, for the baby print bag you made and have fabric leftover, do you have enough to make a washable changing pad?  I know from family with little kids, they really like a pad to lay down on those bathroom changing tables, given who knows what was there before, and if they can just toss into the wash there are really so very helpful.  Just a thought, but came to mind immediately when I saw  your post.  K

I don't know if I should put this here, or in the area of meetings and such, but we are starting a knitting guild in western Tampa Bay.  The first meeting is the 25th of Sept (meetings will be fourth Thursday of the month) at the Safety Harbor Library at 6pm.  Just bring whatever is on your needles, no other contributions required.  This has come about via the Sunday Morning B&N Starbucks knitters in Clearwater, but the person setting up is a master knitter and involved in several other groups in the area.  Will post on Ravelry, but I think I'm the only person involved who uses SG (not many stitchers, all knitters....) and want to let anyone in the Pinellas county area know we are starting up.  If you need to know the Safety Harbor Library address, please pm me.  I don't know it offhand, but it isn't like Safety Harbor is all that big..   ;D  K
