Show and Tell: Karen and Karen

I'm hurrying through these this month because I'm going out of town. Today we have show and tell from Karen, who is a beader, and Karen, our new member. Karen the beader showed off her Christmas tree earrings, a lovely sparkly bracelet, and an Ukrainian style necklace she was wearing.


Our new member Karen showed off a beautiful "love" Valentine's frame, a pin cushion and fob, and a cute pumpkin sewing case stitched twice. Lovely work Karen!


Thanks for reading!

Show and Tell: Jane, Peggy M and Marge

Continuing on with show and tell, these are the items I had this month. I completed the stitching for the shadow trapunto class we had last month. Kathy B finished hers, but didn't leave her pillow out, and I didn't get a picture, and didn't notice until too late. I'm very sorry Kathy!

There are also a couple of temari balls, and my box of Japanese Thimbles.


This is Peggy's heart that she is finishing for her daughter. I love the colors!


These two Faberge Eggs are very appropriate for April, celebrating Easter. These were stitched by Marge, one in silk, and one in DMC floss. (The more muted one is the silk.) I think these are both just lovely, and I will be excited to see how she finishes them.


Thank you all for sharing!

Show and Tell: Marj, Peggy et al.

At our guild meeting last night this was some of the show and tell:

Marj made a Japanese ring thimble from a kit she got from Japan. I think this turned out really great!


She also showed off the embroidery on the kitchen towel she finished. This was her take-along project. She puts a lot more detail into this type of project than I do. Love the peas!


Peggy showed of her complete set of mini Zoo stockings. The Noah's Ark one is the new one, but they are all adorable.


She also has the Hat in the Cat (love the green eyes) and


a Halloween picture. I'm so sorry it is so washed out; the colors are much more vibrant in real life.


The "et al." part is the bears that 17 members (17!) turned in. They will be assembled, and then we will have a stuffing party later. These will be donated also, when they are done.


We have been meeting at the same place for all the years I've been a member of this guild, but last night was our last night in this location. It will be interesting to see if the dynamic changes in a new place!

I'll be back tomorrow with more show and tell.
