The Reason for the Weekend

Finally, wrapping up last weekend's trip report. Our reason for traveling to the Chicago area was to take a Betsy Morgan class with the Lake Michigan Sampler Guild. The project was Betsy's Elizabethan Casket (google it or go to her blog for a picture.). We completed one of the smalls that goes in the casket. It's a little bag- you could put a thimble or some buttons in it. It was a great class and I look forward to working more on this project!

Since arriving home, I managed to finish the top for my Shepherd's Fold project. Yesterday, I "finished" finished it!

A couple of my friends and I found some coordinating fabric and decided to put a padded bottom in the box.

Now I'll need to get the fob finished. Looking forward to seeing what the next installment is going to be!

Happy Stitching!

I'm envious of all your wonderful stitching trips and fun classes Cathy. My life is incredibly busy these days with work and family demands but someday I hope I have more time for my hobby.

Your SB box looks lovely - congrats on another wonderful finish!

Cathy, I love your SB Full Heart, I hope mine looks as good when I get my box. The link to your wish list in your profile does not seem to be working, but I did find your Pinterest album - if that is what it is called. We have so many likes in common and you even pinned a picture from my album - Lauren Sauer's Melon bag. Why is it that class pieces as so much more desirable than ordinary ones? I have something on your wish list from Pinterest if you want to get in touch. Sandra
