Oh, What Fun!

I had a great day yesterday!  My friend Terry and I went to a stitching class with our guild, Kindred Spirits Sampler Guild.  Ellen Chester was teaching a project especially designed for our guild.  I was so attracted to this project because of the beautiful Tiger's Eye Maple carrier.

 It turned out to be a good size wooden box, bigger than I imagined.  When you see the project in person, it always looks even better than in a small picture on the internet.  I hadn't even realized that there was a needleroll small included.  I had never had a class with Ellen before and I was so impressed with her as a teacher.  She kept us on track showing us new stitches.  Her video display was easy to see even from the back of the room.

  We worked on the pin cube.  I am thrilled that I got one side of it all done.  She had a trunk show and I got just a little bit of stash.

 Our guild always gives each attendee a small gift.  This is what I got:

For a stitcher, there just isn't anything better than a great class!
