A Wonderful Class

Hellooooo!
   I have been trying to adjust to my new schedule and one thing that I haven't been doing is stitching. That needs to change!
   Last Saturday was the Piedmont Heritage Sampler Guild's class with Pam & Susan from Praiseworthy Stitches.
My friend Susan brought us all flags since it was Flag Day.
Here is Pam showing us the first piece they taught. Under the bunnies is some grass that is covering up where 2 pieces of fabric were spliced together.
This is what we practiced. The house on this piece is done in rice stitch and underneath the house are smyrnas.
Pam & Susan spoiled us!
The scissors, with a fob and waxer that they made for us.
This is the second piece that they taught. This one is spliced up the middle.
It is a funky little sampler.
Wonderful kits!
Stitching action!
What an awesome day!
There was some retail opportunities too.
  It was a wonderful day. Thank you Praiseworthy Stitches!
 I did not start either piece. I need to finish a Nancy Johnson and Beggar's Night since they are both 2/3 of the way finished.
  Thanks you for visiting. I hope to get caught up on my blog reading soon!
I miss you all and want to know what you have been up to.
  On my way home from class I saw this...
Have a great week guys! I have to board a flight now.

Looks like a fun class, my curiosity is piqued. What is the purpose of the splicing - am I missing something?

A class with the designers of Praiseworthy Stitches - how cool is that. It must have been great to learn something new and to receive these great kits.

Never a dull moment for you. :) What a great class ~ glad you were able to be there! That bumper decal would be perfect for one of my cats. :)

Looks like it was loads of fun Chris ! Never seen fabric spliced before then stitched to cover it up. Pretty cool! Hugs from me and Titus

What a great class! I love the grass splicing - hopefully I never have to use that idea. Oh my, The Hubs would love *that* ribbon!!

Looks like a great class! The projects look really great. I've never had to splice fabric--sounds tricky!
