Show and Tell of Class Projects

Time continues to get away from me way too fast! How can it possibly be February already?

Today I want to share photos of completed class projects from Dee L.and Judith H. I'm sorry, Dee and Judith, that it has taken so long for me to post your photos.

Dee was in the premier of my Kindred Spirits class which I taught in Michigan in November. It was no surprise to me that she was the first one to complete this project. Dee actually sent me this photo before Christmas. That shows how quickly she stitched (and assembled) this project.

You have seen Dee's name and work many times on my blog because she is a prolific (and beautiful) stitcher and finisher.  In fact, Dee may win the the prize for having completed the most With My Needle projects.  Just type "Dee L" in the search engine on the left side bar of this page, and you can see many more examples of Dee's beautiful workmanship.

Thank you dear Dee for the photo and for being such a great With My Needle supporter.

Next are photos from Judith  who took several classes when I taught for Fobbles in Cumbria in the UK in 2011. (If you're interested in seeing photos from then, type "Fobbles" in the search engine on the left side bar of this page.) Judith wrote me that she and her friends meet every month for an "Ellen Chester Day".  They work on their three class projects. (Boy, I wish I could pop in and surprise them.)

Judith sent these photos of her completed Friends in Stitches.

Judith also told me that one member of her group has completed her Needleworker's Sampler Huswif  which I also taught at Fobbles. Judith says it looks "magnificent" and has inspired her to complete hers.  

Thanks, Judith, for your lovely note and photos. I'm looking forward to see more of your work. Please encourage your friends to also send me photos of their completed projects.

Kindred Spirits and  Friends in Stitches are both class projects and not available at shops.

Kindred Spirits will next be taught in Texas in April and in Minnesota in May. Registrations for both classes are currently being taken. You can get details on the teaching page of my website. You must be in class to get the kit.   Long May She Wave is also being taught in Texas.

I've finished two out of my three class projects Ellen, but still need to do the assembly when I get all my stuff out of store. I am envious that Judith has managed to get the scrimshaws, I'll have to work out how I can get mine. Best wishes, Sandra
