LaJolla has come and gone. What a fabulous week. I had the greatest class participants as did all the teachers! We are blessed indeed.
Surprise guest thanks to Miss Vicky of NeedleNook of LaJolla! The one and only Maggie stopped in for a short visit for a couple days.
Remember it is her fabulous Winter Cardinal design that I am teaching at the ANG Seminar in Houston August 2019 - be sure to go over to needlepoint.org and sign up for the classes.
My other classes are the Bluebonnet Boot Vase and the Personalized Plaid Snap Tray. Check them out. Would love to have you in class.
NeedleNook of LaJolla hosted another fantastic annual retreat. Here's a glimpse at a couple of those items from my class that drew a lot of attention. Lauren probably won the prize for her Rosary Mary from Love You More as far as trips over to have a look. People loved the halo, the white wrap, the cross, the, the, the - on and on.
I know, WOW, right? I'll be having a stitch guide before long.
Probably second was Sandy's hair on her Morning Coffee from Patti Mann.
Can't wait to see the hair tamed and finished and the rest of the stitches added! Such fun. She's doing a fantastic job.
See the ball of yarn being created by our 'cat lady' Pat? She is bringing life to a Maggie canvas for us.
Victoria's starfish reminds me of ones I caught before they were bleached. Don't you just love it!
I'm not sure where my other pictures have gone. If I find them I'll share later. We have a fantastic golfer trophy, loved Dottie's threads to bring it to life; precious 'hats' created by Catherine, and many more.
ONLINE MYSTERY CLASSES:
Yesterday was mid-month and we posted our monthly lessons for the various classes.
We gave our Raymond Crawford Reindeer a Poinsettia Blanket and some other accessories.
Penny MacLeod's Dana received some additional borders to add to her design.
And we added a new project this month! Lily Wreath from Raymond Crawford Designs. This one is going to have a ton of techniques, stitches, etc.
