In August I attended 2 classes in Atlanta, GA with Jackie du Plessis of It's Fine-ally Finished. The classes were sponsored by The Sampler Guild of Georgia. Jackie taught "Buttons a Bounty" (BAB) and "My Finishing Accessories" (MFA). Both classes focused on the assembly of the project. There was no pre-stitching for BAB so I still have that one to stitch. I took MFA at Celebration of Needlework in 2006 along with 2 other stitching friends, Deb and Carol. This year Stephanie decided to take the class with Jackie in ATL. We, (Deb, Carol and I) decided to pull out our pieces from a year ago and take the finishing again along with Stephanie, and get the job done this time. Thanks to Jackie for the extra prodding, pushing and encouragement. I now have a completed project. Deb and Carol have also finished their projects. We have challenged Steph to have hers done by Oct. when we get together again for ASG in Louisville, KY.
