As I mentioned in an earlier post, our original Stitchville Spring Fling weekend, scheduled in April, was canceled and rescheduled to this weekend as a Zoom meeting. While it wasn’t the same as gathering in person, it was still a lot of fun.
Linda Stolz from Erica Michaels was this year’s designer and she did a great job teaching via Zoom.
You might remember the unopened retreat box that I posted earlier this week (Anticipation). It was filled with goodies and our class project.
Friday night was the unveiling and the project is to die for. Linda found an old sampler in the attic of her childhood home and it served as the inspiration for the set of smalls that we will stitch.
We all received a lesson in stitching on silk gauze. This band, stitched on 30ct. gauze, will go around our ort jar. I still need to fill in the background.
Today we made these beautiful wool roses for the top of the ort jar. So cute!
It was a great weekend and it really lifted my spirits!
