Brenda was sporting her Irish top hat complete with shamrocks and shopowner Michele gave everyone a lucky shamrock necklace to wear. It was a really festive day in Fernandina Beach.
Here is a photo of Brenda with a friend who threatened me with excommunication if I showed a close up of her so I edited out by putting something silly over her face and trying to write I'm Irish LOL - I never said I was an expert with this stuff.
I was lucky enough to be sitting this close to Brenda all day so I got the benefit of listening to her planning fun stitches for all the participants canvases.
Here is a shot of the wall of fibers in the backround. This shop has the best selection of fibers in all of NE FL. I was pleased to get to meet KB of Stitcherie fame. So that was a lot of fun putting a face to those initials. All the participants had interesting and varied projects. I wish I asked if I could take a photo of each but it was very crowded around the table and hard to get by so I opted to just stay seated and get as much stitching done as possible since I was only there for the one day. This was a 3 day opportunity and several did all 3 days and several more did 2 days and a few of us only did one day but the Saturday class was sold out.
Since I was only there for 1 day of class - I decided not to do a huge canvas but instead take these 2 darling little halloween people. I got them out of a Kelly Clark trunk show that Bristly Thistle had in the fall and I had not touched them since so it was perfect. These are actually Di Paolo canvases and they are precious I think.
Glitz, beads and silk - what more could a girl want ! note to self - I simply must get a nicer camera that takes close up photos. This IPhone ain't gettin it !!!!!!!!
Here is the two little witches ( I think they are witches - they have witch hats eh?)together - They just make me smile. I am going to do the borders the same on both and share what colors can be shared to make then a pair but they have their own unique qualities and colors.
How about this cutie - sooooo darling
I hope all of you had as wonderful a St Patricks Day celebration as I did. What could be better than learning from a great teacher like Brenda and being in a class with lots of wonderful stitchers.
