We recently spent some time in Jacksonville with my father-in-law, and while there I got to spend time with my friends at the Azalea EGA. It was so good to see them again.
Carol P. and her friends Carol R. and Linda F. drove up from the Orlando area. I was delighted that Carol brought her completed A Lady's Worke Box that I had taught for the guild a year and a half ago. As you can see in the photos below, Carol does beautiful work--both stitching and finishing.
In addition to being an excellent needleworker, Carol is very prolific. You can see other photos of her needlework featured on my blog here and here.
The guild was doing a workshop the day I was there, and I was invited to participate. The project was a queen stitched scissors sheath designed by Carolyn Standing-Webb. We each chose our own linen and threads.
Here is the front of my scissors sheath. I still haven't decided what I will put on the back. (Please excuse the poor photo. I'll take a better one once I get the sheath assembled.)
I took Hannah Pepper with me on the trip to Jacksonville. I saw Carol P.'s framed version on Facebook, and that inspired me to stitch Hannah. I should have asked her to bring hers to the guild meeting so that I could admire it up close.
I have made lots of progress since I last showed you a photo. So without further ado, here is Hannah in all her glory.
