Along with stitching new projects, I have been working on other things. The top picture is the result from taking a class from Carole Samples when she was here in November. The class was Build a Better Block. I am happy with the result, but I can tell you, my block is very simple compared to the complex and beautiful blocks that other students were making! I'll keep you posted as I embellish it.
Here is another embroidered snowflake that I have done on one of the projects for the spring classes.
I have also been busy putting together the Victorian Stitchery Retreat for 2011. I have four wonderful teachers lined up and the dates for the retreat will be November 7-10. I have had the retreat at the same venue all the years I have done this, so I decided it was time for a change! The retreat will now be at the Old Town Hotel! You can get more info on the hotel at www.hotelatoldtown.com. There is a lot to do in the area with 15 restaurants within a two block radius of the hotel. The area is also filled with little boutiques, museums and a movie theatre. Invitations for the retreat will go out in mid-February, so if you are interested in coming just let me know!
Talk to you later,
