The linen color is a little washed out in this photo. My finishing pile is growing!
Another project from the August retreat that I haven't shared with you...Ukrainian Eggs by Michele Roberts. Now, don't for a minute think that I have crossed over to the "dark side". I just dipped my toes in the pool for a little bit! Truthfully, I just couldn't resist this project. The vibrant thread colors against the black congress cloth called my name. It was also a history lesson. Michele shared a lot of information with us about the symbolism of the colors and the designs.
It was a great class and I look forward to working on this again real soon!
Happy Saturday all! It's a beautiful day in the northland. I've been doing laundry and trying to clean up my craft room.
Can't remember if I shared a picture of these scissor fobs with you. At retreat in August, we had a class where one of our members walked us through how to make them step-by-step. I'm not a beader, so this was all new to me, but I think mine turned out quite nice. Some of the other stitchers made some pretty elaborate fobs with beautiful beads; I took the more simplistic route!
Can only clean for about another hour; we have a wedding to go to this afternoon. The bride and groom have some beautiful weather for their special day.
