A Trio of Delights!

I'm not sure what is going on with me--I seem to go longer and longer between blog posts.  I'll sincerely try to do better.

Today I want to share photos from three very talented needleworkers--Donna G. from California, Judy G. from Minnesota, and Patti D. from Colorado.  All of these ladies have completed class projects and were kind enough to send me photos of their work.

First is Donna's Friends in Stitches project.  She took this class with the Swan Sampler Guild.  Donna wroteI really liked the variety of stitches in this. That always makes the stitching more interesting. The finishing directions were thorough as usual.

The next photo is Judy G.'s A Lady's Worke Box.  Judy took this class and Fruit of the Vine last October when I taught in Onalaska, Wisconsin.  Judy wrote, I truly enjoyed the class and stitching this project.  The finishing was done by an individual that does finishing for Crosse Stitchery & Main Street Framing.  I am over the top pleased with the final outcome.

And last, but not least, is Patti's A Sampler Needlebook.  She changed the birds on the front of the needlebook to the lark bunting, which is the state bird of Colorado. Patti took this class last month through The Sampler Guild of the Rockies in Denver.  I think Patti had the project stitched and assembled within a week or two of the class.  

Patti is now stitching My Favorite Things Stitching Basket.  Knowing the speed at which she stitches and finishes projects, I'm guessing I'll soon have some more photos to show you.

As you can tell, all three of these ladies are indeed very talented needleworkers.  Thank you, Donna, Judy, and Patti, for letting me showcase your work.

The three projects in today's post are class projects.  If you are interested in any of them, please check my teaching schedule either on the left sidebar of my blog or on the teaching page of my website.
