The Merry (Wet) Month of May

May 2018 is just hours away from being an entry in the history books. The last few days we have had an awful lot of rain. Hope this will help us as we approach summer to make up some of our deficit.

I think I'm slowly getting out of my stitching slum. This month I worked on two pieces from Praiseworthy Stitches', Halloween Frights Treat Box. The first is a candy corn that will be finished as Scissor fob and the other is the face of Frankie. Frankie will be finished as a needlebook.

After neglecting my Cheer Angel for some months, I finally started working  on her again.

I have just a small area of her face and blouse left to stitch. I also plan on adding some embellishment to the wings.

I had the great pleasure of taking a class with Jeannette Douglas this month. The class was co-sponsored by the Magnolia Sampler Guild and The Sampler Guild of Georgia. While Jeannette taught two classes I was only able to attend one. The class I took was Common Threads Two. In the tradition of Common Threads, this sampler has adapted to the area were it was being taught.  Our version includes some Georgia peaches, Cherokee Rose blossoms, a Spanish moss covered tree, and the gold domed State Capitol. Stitched in silks on your choice of  32ct or 36ct linen it is proving to be a fun stitch.

The class was very enjoyable and I hope I'll be able to take another class with Jeanette.
