Virtual Irish Retreat Stitch Along
The sentiment says 'Every Stitch comes from the heart' and is in Irish. There is an Irish word for stitch but when you use it in this sentence it means something all together different so the word stitch it is.
Now, please be patient with me. I was up from 4 am last night as our carbon monoxide detector kept going off. We have a solid fuel range and would you believe it...four dogs sleeping in the kitchen and not one barked when it started beeping! We think the vents were blocked in the range so it is something we will have to keep an eye on. Anway, after I wrote this post I went for a lovely walk in our local bluebell woods and it kick started my brain a bit!
I wonder, would anyone like to take part in a SAL? I am organised a stitching retreat in Ireland which will run from May 26th to the 29th. I thought it might be nice to run a virtual retreat and SAL over the same days, stitching the girly Irish Chart. Now with it featuring shamrocks, I would like to keep it Irish (gaelic) but I will also be releasing an English version.
The reason it is in Irish is because I live in the West of Ireland where most people speak Irish, so it runs with the theme of the Irish Stitch Retreat. I will open a page on my blog for our virtual stitching retreat so we can share photos. I may also include a few small 'Irish' challenges as well, just over these four days!
If you are interested and committed let me know and once I have names I will email out a pdf of the chart and we can all stitch it and finish it as we like. Just an idea, let me know if your interested!
You do not have to have completed the chart in those four days: the retreat will last as long as it takes and your photos are added xx
Right..off to do some real, material craft. Thank you for reading and feel free to leave a comment!
Have a great week and see you soon!
