Christmas Creativity

The December meeting of Tudor Rose Sampler Guild was our chance to visit, eat and exchange ornaments. It was a lovely affair.

This ornament was two- sided and covered Christmas and New Years. What a treat!

2015 ornament exchange

Where has this year gone? I would swear it has flown by, which, as we all know, the years will continue to fly by faster and faster. We had a great year at TRSG, with two spring workshops with Ellen Chester of With My Needle and a fall workshop with Gloria Moore of Milady’s Needle. Members of our Guild also stitched Catherine Theron’s Winter Strawberries Needle Roll as our annual stitch-a-long. We have been quite busy this year. Our January meeting will feature our MAGIC presentations. I wish I could say I was one of those who completed everything on their MAGIC list, but alas, life got in the way. However, in my desire to try and finish one particular piece, Drawn Thread’s Toccata No. 3, I finally dove into the world of drawn thread. Man was I scared – now that all of the drawn thread borders are completed, I am no longer afraid of it. Sometimes we just have to jump in feet first and see what we can accomplish. Here’s wishing you all a wonderful 2016, and wishes of many stitches!

Another fresh new year is here…

Another year to live!

To banish worry, doubt, and fear,

To love and laugh and give! This bright new year is given me

To live each day with zest…

To daily grow and try to be

My highest and my best!

I have the opportunity

Once more to right some wrongs,

To pray for peace, to plant a tree,

And sing more joyful songs!

William Arthur Ward, 1921-1994
