Highlights from our meeting of Tuesday, November 7, 2017

There was lots of lovely stitching to admire tonight!

Carley Linn recently completed these charming ornaments, but she can't remember the designer as she purchased them at an ANG Seminar several years ago!

Show and Tell

Denise also finished Undulations II by Gail Stafford, which was offered as an EGA correspondence course. What a vibrant piece!

We were so glad to have Margaret Bendig back again tonight. She presented her Princess Tree design, a "stash buster" holiday piece that can be stitched in a variety of colors. It lends itself to finishing as either an ornament or a stand-up piece.

Margaret guided us through the instruction packet, and then she showed us a great little method she has developed for adding a small bow to a canvas design. Photographic instructions are included in the pattern packet, and Margaret even supplied us each with a needle and a length of ribbon so that we could follow along and try it ourselves with her guidance. This is a really nifty way to "tie" a bow!

The nifty bow!

Diane Ackley has already finished Margaret Bendig's Champagne Toast to Nina, the 2017-2018 Nina Goerres Fund design.

Denise Moreno stitched this delightful snowman from the Elizabeth Turner Collection.

Another EGA correspondence course that Denise took was the elegant Maharajah's Elephant by Mary Long.
