It was a great day. Everyone pitched in and helped others in their own special way. It was heartwarming to experience that and just have fun and laugh. Six years ago I didn't know any of these gals, except, of course, my daughter. Three years ago I still did not really "know" a couple of them. Now they are all very special friends. I know that all the stitchers who might read this must have very special stitching friends as well.
OK, on to the photos. Rose received her Certificate of Accomplishment 2011 from Western Reserve Sampler Guild for completing Anniversary Roses, the beautiful sampler designed by Lauren Sauer.
I mention that here because this piece was also voted Members Choice for 2011.
|A happy Rose!|
This sampler is magnificent...
|OK...she looks sane and is having fun.|
|Well, maybe not so much on the fun part!|
|These are Linda's finishes.|
The photo does not do her stitched top justice;
her fabric choice absolutely set this piece off perfectly.
Thanks to Linda for encouraging us to have a day for hoops!
|This is Lenore's hoop stitcher's box|
and her coordinating prairie point pincushion.
