And the Weekend Continues with More Rock Stars

The weekend fun continued on Friday evening and Saturday with Blackbird Designs. It’s always a treat to be in a class with Barb and Alma!

Great photo of Alma, Jean and Barb!

Friday’s project was a sweet sampler design based on an antique that Barb and Alma had in their collection. They shared their stories and we stitched away. (Antique followed by Barb and Alma’s version.)

On Saturday, Barb and Alma shared another antique sampler from their collection as well as the new sampler based on motifs from the antique. The pattern for this sampler is available through the Attic.

The motifs in this large sampler were used to create our projects. No painting! We received the pattern and supplies to stitch the top of this box and a tomato-like pincushion. I think it looks more like an apple. Barb and Alma said we could also finish as a drum if preferred. I should have taken better pictures.

Another fabulous day!
