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!!


  1. Sounds like you had a wonderful time..colors are so pretty on the piece you gave a sneek peek....

  2. Love the idea of a tray. Both projects you presented to the guild are beautiful.

  3. Looks like a fun workshop! Love seeing all the projects ... & your spring flowers : ) Birds like grape jelly? That's a new one for me! How do you offer it to them ... just spoon some into a feeder tray?

  4. Love your Rose and Crown pattern. How soon until it is released or is it available for purchase? I'm calling Old Mill Stitchery in the morning. Love that tray and the idea of trading out patterns.
    Thank you

  5. I love the verse on your Tallman House sampler.
