Retreat Part 2

I've saved the best for last. 

I've always liked Lizzie Kate patterns but after meeting Linda and hearing her talk about her business I'm now a Lizzie Kate LOVER.  She was such a genuinely likable person that I became instantly enamored.  First she gave a power point presentation about the development of her business then a talk about how a pattern goes from an idea to a full blown pattern ready for distribution.  It was very interesting.  Not that I want to scare her or anything, but if I could be a groupie, I would. 

So, here's the project she had for us.  (The theme of the weekend was 'fall') 

Sorry, it's sideways.  You know how it is to move pictures around once they're uploaded, right?  This will just have to remain sideways because I already uploaded them out of sequence.  I'm done adjusting!

Look, there are Jelly Bellies in there!
Another cool thing was that the chair across from me remained empty all weekend, so Linda often came and sat.  Here she is signing fabric. 
 And, here is my finished project....
 signature and all!! 
I don't think I'll wait for the summer framing sale this time.  I can't wait to get this framed and hung. 

So, go forth and keep Lizzie Kate in business!  It's truly a joy to know someone so cool is designing these fun and whimsical patterns. 



  1. What a great experience you had!

  2. Hi New Stitching Friend!

    I'm just now getting around to visiting everyone from last weekend's retreat via computer. What a bummer that we can't meet again THIS weekend...

    As I was going through my "loot" I stumbled upon an extra pattern from Rosewood Manor that I didn't recall seeing before. Thank you for the surprise! :)

    Your blog is most delightful! Happy to read it and imagine your smiling face while writing away.

  3. Sounds like you had a great time! I love that pattern she designed! I also like Lizzie Kate Designs...

  4. What fun to meet Linda and stitch that adorable fall project! I'm glad your time at the retreat was so enjoyable :)
