I've been starving for real size needlework recently, so I dived into a new project offered by Tricia Wilson Nguyen - "Tudor Rose" workshop - this course is a project to explore the use of composite gold and silk detached stitches. The design is small and comfortable to work with, I am familiar with some of gold stitches from Tricia's previous class Tudor and Stuart Gold Master class, so this adorable Tudor Rose is a nice and pleasant change. I've finished the stems using silk and Gold Metal thread and started working on the leaves.
I am not sure how I am going to use it when I finish my Tudor Rose but for now I am really enjoining the process.
Last Saturday we had our annual CdA Dollhouse miniatures club's Christmas party at Beverly's in beautiful CdA, Idaho. I was very happy to see all ladies who attended the party since I don't have a chance to attend club's meetings very often due to the long distance. We had a wonderful lunch, shared the news, ups and downs, and exchanged the Christmas gifts with our Secret Santas. Cheryl, gave me these beautiful chairs in blue that I love a lot.
I gave Cheryl (it appeared she was my Secret Santa as well) a framed petit point Bunny, weaved rug and a little book for her new room box for a little girl she is working on.
It was such a fun to meet with the friends, especially in Christmas time! Thank you Cheryl and the rest of the group for your Christmas gifts!
Have a great week!
