Another Opportunity Drawing Item

We have received another item for the opportunity drawing! Look at this beautiful afghan. Seven members of the guild got together and stitched it. It has a green backing and prairie points around the outside. I love the wildflower motif!


Thank you so much, and let me know if you want tickets!

Guild Meeting

Guild meeting last night was fun. As I have mentioned, we are preparing for our show on October 2 & 3, so the business portion of the meeting was longer than usual. Everything seems to be well organized, and it should be a wonderful show.

One of the fun things at meetings is gifts from our secret stitcher. I got this beautiful tatted cross. I know my secret stitcher reads the blog, from the presents I have been getting, so I want to say thank you! I love this.


After the business portion of the meeting, we had our class, and this month and next I am teaching a temari class. Here I am demonstrating a technique... I love the looks of concentration on every one's face. I was very pleased by every one's progress as well. I think all the mari were marked, and are waiting until October to have the stitching added.


I also want to thank Marge (standing on the right) for being my class angel and helping people to catch up.


This picture is funny. Both the balls you can see are blurry, there was a lot of activity going on. I look forward to seeing the beautiful color combinations people pick out for next month, and I hope to get a picture of all the finished temari together.

Plenty of Temari

I indulged in plenty of temari over the long weekend. These first two pictures are of the temari I made for our guild Christmas ornament sale. The designs are very simple, but I really like the colors of these two.


These three are more traditional colors.


This one is a SAL (Stitch A-Long) from Talk Temari. I love the colors on this one! There may be some additional decorations to be added. Simple bands can be very cool!


Tonight I'm teaching temari at my guild. I hope it goes well!
