Back on Track

Well, I finished off In the Sweet By & By and I totally finished my round robin interpretation. So back to the English Tapestry Sewing Box. I made it to Page 2. This page is the other half of the design on the first page so I'm doing all the same stitching on the other side of the flower. Ironically, I found out where I was off a stitch. But it's okay, you can't tell. This design is to be made into a small box that is around 4 inches by 6 inches. I really like stitching that is finished into something dimensional.
I want to put a little time in each day into getting ready for the Hare Pyns class. I'd like to finish the little round pin cushion today.
I started making a list of designers that I would like to take a class with. The guild is always looking for suggestions of who to try and get to teach a class. So far I have:
Cynthia Zittel of Drawn Thread
Merry Cox - Nouveau Palais Royal box
Marsha Papay Gomola - sweet little bird needlebook like she is doing for Shining Needle Society
Betsy Morgan - her new casket design
Sandra Sullivan - Prairie Schooler - I just like her designs
Just Nan - love some of her designs (not the bears or the angels)
Jackie DuPlessis - I want to make the Bonboniere Box, Pink & Pearls, Lily of the Valley
Barbara Jackson - the strawberry needlebook she is doing for Williamsburg
Louise Henderson of Cherished Stitches - sweet lady
Brooke's Books - might be interesting
CA Wells
I know all the rage is samplers and primitive designs but I really like things that are pretty and imaginative. My family says I always pick things with flowers on them. So I must be partial to flowers.

  1. Love your stitching - that needlebook has turned out real well. Wish I lived near you and could join some of your classes - will have to be content to "lust from afar" as New Zealand is too far away to travel to them
