Today was a finishing day. This was a class that I took at the Needlework Guild of Minnesota Retreat last year. In the class we assembled all of the pieces needed to finish these Halloween ornaments. All I had to do was stitch them and put them together. I think they turned out great!
The class was with Cathy Habermann from Hands on Design. These charts are not available for purchase as this is still one of the classes she offers.
Tomorrow is the 400th anniversary of when the Mayflower set sail for America. With Thy Needle and Thread has commemorated this anniversary with a sampler that honors the women who were on the Mayflower. The idea is to stitch for the duration of the trip, 66 days, with the goal of having a completed sampler at the end. We shall see!
There may be more finishing on the agenda tomorrow. So happy for the long weekend!
