Big News!!!

For those of you have been anxiously awaiting a picture of my newest project, the wait is over! Here it is! And the big news, you ask? Well, I am hosting a handwork retreat at Wiawaka Holiday House in Lake George, New York, from August 12 to 16. And this is what we will be making, as well as learning to hand quilt my way! (That's no poked fingers and no hoop or frame for those of you who don't know!) More information is available on my website http://www.sharonstroud.com/ - look under Retreat. Beginners are welcome.

More good news: Remember I told you about trying to connect my new TV and VCR/DVD? Well it took me a couple days, but I finally got it. And about two days later I figured out how to actually record! (Let's face it...it was mostly trial and error but I am nothing if not obsessive when something doesn't work.)
We are all so lucky in so many ways. There are (and will continue to be) days when it seems nothing goes right and we chant "nobody loves us, everybody hates us, guess we'll go eat worms". But let's be thankful every day that we wake up (always a good start to the day), have enough food to eat, a warm place to live and clothing to cover us. Let's face it...everything else is just gravy. Say it with me: Thank you, God, for every blessing!
And thank you, readers, for sticking with me. I know I am spastic about posting, but sometimes I feel like a one-armed paper hanger--so many things to do and only one of me. But I always enjoy hearing from you--so don't be shy, leave me a comment once in a while.
Til next time!


  1. This block is lovely, Sharon.

  2. By the looks of the block, the retreat will be a real treat! It is beautiful and it looks like it's fun to do.

    Glad you got your VCR/DVD player going, or we were coming out to hook it up for you. I couldn't do it, of course, but hubby could. (He can't turn heels, though.)


  3. Sharon--I just "LOVE" the new block and i hope that just maybe this next fall, you will teach that more locally at one of the quilt shops--maybe--maybe--maybe--!! Keep stitching spring and yard work are on their way--someplace??
    Just, Di


Don't be shy! Leave me a comment...it's so lonely without hearing from you!
