I attended a class with Meg of Crabapple Hill Studios on Saturday.
Here are the two designs we were given. We could stitch on either one. I haven't seen these designs before and am not sure if they are a future release.
This is the one I chose-
Here is how mine looked at the end of class-
Below is the other choice. Both were finished as small wallhangings. These designs use a coloring technique with crayons. Am I the only one who has not heard of it before?
Did I mention that I won a door prize? (Yes, that makes 3 door prizes in the last month! Why do I go for years and never win one?? Then, bada boom, 3 in a row)
Here are the towels all stitched up from Meg's show and tell-
Since I am not a big Halloween fan, I came home and dug thru my stash and look what I found. Guess which design will go on the towels :)
Check out the new Crabapple Hill design that Meg passed out to all attendees-Harvest Hopscotch! (sorry for the crappy pics)
Here is some show and tell-
This one was my favorite-
This one was an amalgam of two of Meg's Christmas/winter designs-really cute!
A wonderful time was had by all. It was my first class thru my LQS and I found out that they have an "eat every 2 hours" rule. Oh, my!
Do you remember this framed duck picture that I got at a garage sale last summer? (yes, the ducks are cross-stitched) I was planning to put Le Printemps in it. But, once I got it home, it looked too old-fashioned.
On Friday I went to a garage sale and bought a wonderful, large teal frame for $4. Look what fit in it perfectly! Now where to hang it? It's a good problem to have :)
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I appreciate each and every one of you. Your comments make my day.
