Now Summer’s fervour rages round,An excerpt from ‘Ode to June’ by Charles Graham Universal Magazine 76 (June 1785) 328.
The sun darts fierce his burning rays;
The flocks now seek the covert ground,
And Nature pants beneath the blaze;
June is the month that summer begins but here in the United States mother nature has had other plans. It has been extremely warm in all parts of the country and according to the calendar summer does not ‘officially’ begin until Sunday, June 20. Hopefully this is not a sign of things to come!
The monthly meeting of the Tudor Rose Sampler Guild was held on Tuesday, June 1. Since we do not have a meeting in July we celebrated ‘Christmas in July’ early with a walk down memory lane looking at past ornaments designed by members for the Guild. A call went out to our members earlier this year for submissions for our annual TRSG Christmas ornament so this was a great time to see what our members have created in the past.
As always the needles of our members have been very busy with a lot of beautiful projects completed and shared during the monthly Show and Tell.
There will not be a meeting of the Tudor Rose Sampler Guild in July 2021 so make sure you stop back by in August to see what our members have stitched, punched, beaded, and embroidered!
