We all, in our own way, have many things to be thankful for in our lives. During our November Meeting, we were given the task of nominating and electing new TRSG Board Members. Many thanks are extended to those who have been serving on the TRSG Board, you have done a wonderful job. I would also like to extend many thanks to those individuals who were elected. In order for organizations to run smoothly, it takes wonderful people who have given and continue to give of their time and efforts. We truly appreciate you!
Show & Tell
I think that many members are thankful for the time to stitch. As you will see below, our group has been very productive. Some members already completed their 2014 TRSG Christmas Ornament, which was the focus of our November Meeting. Thank you Gloria Moore for creating this year’s TRSG Christmas Ornament. The hornbooks are a lovely touch with the 2014 TRSG inscribed on the back.
Both of Lori’s ornaments were finished by Betty H.
I am thankful for such a wonderful friend and such a lovely birthday gift. Thank you Sherry!
This was a TRSG workshop. We look forward to seeing this piece when its finished.
I am thankful to have this project finished and framed!
Would you believe this is stitched on 40 count silk gauze!
This Sampler is featured in the 2014 Winter Sampler & Antique Needlework Quarterly Magazine. Robert, how do you finish things so quickly? Not only that, it’s stitched on 52/60 count linen.
Finishing by Betty H.
I would also like to recognize, Karen H., a TRSG member whose Catherine Theron Quaker Sewing Roll was pictured in our last post, but I did not have her name. Way to go Karen.
Next month, we will meet at 6:30 p.m., December 2, 2014, for our Annual Ornament Exchange and Holiday Party. Every year, we see such lovely creations exchanged by our members. I cannot wait to see what this year brings. Now, I just have to find the time to do the finishing on my ornament, but thankfully, it is already stitched. In January 2015, we will share our M.A.G.I.C. (My Annual Good Intentions Contract) Projects. What is M.A.G.I.C. you ask? Every year at the beginning of the year, we look in our stash and find something or a few things that we started on, but got laid aside for other projects. This is our way of getting us to pull out the long forgotten projects and try to reach the goal of completing them. How much M.A.G.I.C. have you been able to complete in 2014? You still have a few more weeks! We have also selected our 2015 SAL Project. Be on the look out in a future blog post for photographs and details on Catherine Theron’s Strawberry Needleroll. Also, in April 2015, we will be hosting Ellen Chester of With My Needle. She has such lovely classes and it will be a treat to learn from her.
Now and then it’s good to pause in our pursuit of happiness and just be happy.Guillaume Apollinaire
