First Design for Chessie Club for Old Mill Stitchery

Just a quick preview of the new design for the club I'm doing with Old Mill Stitchery

The piece is called "Friendship Garden" and is a fun summer design that I've mounted on form core to fit inside this adorable wooden tray.  You will get the tray with the first design and then the rest of the pieces can be popped in and out of the same tray when ever you wish.

I just spoke with Mary at Old Mill Stitchery, and she said she still has openings, so if you're interested, please contact her for more details.....816-792-3670.....or email her at  Hopefully I've tempted a few of you to join us ......these clubs have been fun to do and I've really enjoyed hearing your feedback.

When you finish a project, send me a picture, I'd love to see your results and post it on the blog !!!

I wish you a good week with time to stitch every day !

Tudor Rose Sampler Guild Workshop

It's finally SPRING in Wisconsin.....the Orioles, Grossbeaks, Finches, and Blue Buntings are all feasting in our feeders !!  I can barely keep a supply of oranges and grape jelly at the ready.  They all seem to be fighting over it this year......and of course the cats are glued to the windows watching the all commotion !!

I'm still basking in the glow of the wonderful weekend I spent teaching for the Tudor Rose Sampler Guild in Dallas.  All the ladies got right into painting and distressing boxes and seemed to have great fun .  In between drying time, everyone stitched and visited and all in all just enjoyed being together !

What a fun group !!!!  I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with each and every one of them.  Thank you ladies, for a most enjoyable weekend !!!

These are the two projects I designed for them .........the first is  "The Tudor Rose Stitch book"...........

..........and then on Sunday , the project was the "Rose & Crown Sampler".........

Special thanks to Ann and Lynn who were my hostesses .  After spending time in both their homes, I really didn't want to leave !!!  I was wined and dined royally, the entire weekend !!

However, when I did get home, I was thrilled to find all my Spring flowers in bloom, and now with all the birds here as well, hopefully Winter is finally behind us!!

Lastly, here's a little peek of the  first project of the year with the club I'm doing with Old Mill Stitchery in Liberty, MO.

The 4 projects will all fit into a wooden tray that you can swap out at your desire.   They've opened this year up for a few more if you're interested, check with them for details and prices.

I guess that's all for now, except to wish all of you stitching Moms , a wonderful day and a little time to stitch!!
