Funky Trim

It is very blustery in NC today. When I drove past the Randleman reservoir today there were actual waves. I drive past this every day and this is the choppiest that I have seen it. It is chilly too!

Today was the first meeting of a local Sampler group that we are starting in Greensboro. Today's program was "Get to know the sampler stitcher." We had a great discussion on what kinds of needle, scissors, fibers, designs, etc. we use and stitch. It was a lively discussion and a great way to get to know each other. We are meeting every other month. In April our program is on "Carolina Girls." After the meeting we had a great Greek lunch. It was a wonderful morning.



Tonight I actually did the finishing on my February Xmas ornament. This is some finely trim I bought at Hobby Lobby last weekend. Myra used a red and white version to finish an ornament too.










I am very happy with the results.
Now to do some stash diving to pick out my project for March.

I also need to get back to stitching my Loose Feathers project.

I hope everyone is having a great weekend! I am looking forward to a hike tomorrow and hopefully some stitching.

Hugs!

Chris

How exciting...the start of a new sampler group. I wish the group much sharing and success over many, many years to come.

Your little tree ornament came out really cute. I like the cording. Have fun deciding on a new project.
