Victorian Stitchery Retreat Contest Winners!

For the retreat, I had a contest. The only rules were that it be a six inch square and of course it had to be crazy quilted! The picture above is of Karen Guthrie who won first place. Her little mini crazy quilt square was just to die for! Congratulations Karen!

Here is a close up, it is just too cute and she started and finished it just a few days before the retreat.

Avis Nelson won second place with a crazy quilt teacup. I have to say I was grinning a little on this one because Avis took this as a class from me! Just so you know, I wasn't the judge for the contest! Congratulations Avis!

Here is Nark Royer with her little crazy quilt doll that doubled as a pin. She won third prize and look at that big grin! Congratulations Nark!

I'll post more pictures of the retreat as I have time, so keep checking back. It really was a week to remember.

The Victorian Stitchery Retreat is Over!

The Victorian Stitchery Retreat is over! It was a wonderful week filled with many talented students and some outstanding teachers! Here is a picture of a flower I made in Candace Kling's Fabric Flowers class. This flower is made out of silk fabric and I just love it! I am still cleaning up around here from the retreat, but as I have time, I will post more pictures from the retreat.

This is one of the many flowers that Candace Kling taught today at the Victorian Stitchery Retreat. She is an awesome teacher and I can hardly wait for her class tomorrow on Ribbon Trims! As I get my other flowers done, I'll post them. This one is made totally out of silk fabric.

Paisley's and Butterflies!

I had a busy day, but I was so excited with what was done in the classes today that I had to share! This is the illuminated butterfly that J. Marsha Michler taught today. This paticular butterfly was stitched by Georgia McVicar and I thought she did an outstanding job!

Here is a lovely paisley that was made in Carole Samples class today! Tomorrow Candace Kling will be coming and I will be teaching, so I am positive you won't hear from me!
