Hello dear readers!
It is a blustery, sunny day here in the Shenandoah! The "Blizzard" missed us but the cold temps are making there way here tonight. I hope that those of you are dealing with the terrible weather are faring well and there are no power outages to report.
It is that time of year again, it is time to attend the Gathering of Embroiderers. As many of you know, last year was the first year that I was able to attend the Gathering and I had a fabulous time! I took the Richmond Sampler class (aka Anne Maria Clarke sampler) with Margriet Hogue of The Essamplaire. This year I am taking another of her classes, the Cynthia Burr Sampler. This is an American Mary Balch School sampler from Rhode Island. The class is two full days and I cannot wait! I wish that I could take more of the classes but 1.) I work full-time and cannot take the time off to attend all of the classes offered and 2.) any more BAP and I may go crazy! Here is a picture of the sampler...
I promise to take plenty of pictures and share my progress with you! Till next time!
