Bringing you much belated news from our March guild meeting. The guild program for the evening was a button lanyard taught by our Assistant Programs Chair, Shari H.
And here is a peek of what our May program is going to be…
Cyndi S. will be teaching how to stitch on silk gauze and using this darling peacock motif. The cost for the program is $5 for the supplies. Look how tiny that is compared to the penny sitting on the table in front of it!
And now, on to show & tell. We had some amazing things members brought to share.
This is Ruth Bunker, an antique sampler from 1831, found by Judy M. while on an antique shopping trip in Florida. The verse is from Revelations and stitched over one on 52/60 ct. linen. Judy was able to get this little sampler for a very low price.
Shelly M. – Ersilla’s Sampler bySamplers in My Attic. And below is the original Ersilla’s Sampler that Shelly was able to photograph.
Sarah W. – French Country Dog that Sarah has named Sugar.
Nancy has been busy! And look how tiny this is!
This was the guild’s 2017 SAL and the hornbooks were made by the husband of one of our members and then she painted and antiqued them. The pattern is a freebie, available on the Merry Wind Farm blog.
She first colored the fabric with crayons and then added Brazilian embroidery stitching over the top.
And March goes out like a lamb…
Until next time, dear friends!
