EGA Christmas Party & Ornie Exchange


First up is an update on the latest in my Advent Exchange with Lorrie.
Day 15-a selection of fat quarters in fabulous pink :)
Day 16 is a Homespun Elegance chart, a zippered Necessities bag to stitch on, and threads!
Day 17 is a Stitcher's Journal (which I've never had before and can't wait to use!) and a Bareroots Project book of Embroidery Stitches. It isn't just diagrams of embroidery stitches, but also some small projects-very cute!
Day 18-3 beautiful selections of Lakeside Linens to stitch on


Last Saturday was my local EGA chapter Christmas party and ornament exchange.  I received the ornament above and made the ornament below.

 
Below are all the ornaments displayed together-some beading, hardanger, perforated paper, cross stitch and needlepoint.


I also got 2 items back from my finisher at the party!  Here is my bargello pillow.  You might recognize the design from an older issue of Needlepoint Now.


And Day 6 of Renaissance Designs 13 Days of Christmas below-


Here are all 6 of my finished designs hanging on my mantle.  Number 7 is already kitted for next year! You can click on the pic for a closeup.


For your viewing pleasure, here are some photos of the Show n Tell at our meeting.  Talk about inspiring! The picture below is a better representation of the green in my pillow.






 
Lovely, lovely work
I was installed as treasurer of this great group of ladies for the next 2 years.  Hope I haven't bitten off more than I can chew.

I'm sure you will do great as treasurer!! Congratulations! Love seeing all the work of your members -- wow! The pieces with the letters remind me that I've wanted to stitch some of them for a long time. Better get working! I love your Bargello pillow -- so beautiful! And the 13 days of Christmas -- hadn't heard of this series. It looks so pretty! Love the ornie exchange too!

Would love to come and vist your guild someday. I have similar photos from my guild as I've been the historian for 3-4 years now. Just got elected President which I'm happy to do except when I'm not. Someone's got to do it. Guess it was my turn. LOL
