Friday was a finishing class where Amy taught us how to make a strawberry emery. This was fun and I can see many more finishes using this technique. Stephanie FL then showed us how to make some cute floss tags using wooden shapes and scrapbook paper. The afternoon was then spent making a paperbag memory album. This was great and a nifty idea. Here are a few of my classmates sharing their creations...
was the Pals Grab Bag and Christmas ornament exchanges. This was so much fun and some very creative packaging. Unfortunately, I forgot to take pics! I received Linda-NC's package and it was a treat!
There were so many wonderful treats in the package but my most favorite are the beaded scissor fob and needle markers Linda made. They are so cute and I immediately started using the scissors! Second is the wonderful kit from the Remember the Ladies series that contain the Kreinik Silk Mori in the Milkpaint colors. They are so delicate looking and I can't wait to use them. Thanks again Linda!
I was able to make 5 ornaments for the exchange and here are a few pics.
Shelleen and Faye were housemates and I have followed there blogs for awhile so it was nice to have one of their ornaments. Surpisingly, I also picked two of Amy's ornaments and was happy since she has become a good friend this year.
If that wasn't enough, I also won a giveaway from buying a grab bag of charts from DSL.
was the stitching exchange and Halloween ornament exchange.
I stitched a scissor slide and fob from a freebie from My Big Toe Designs.
I received Donna's exchange ....isn't this snowman too cute?
For the Halloween exchange I was lucky enough to choose Toni-IL ornament. I love this cute pumpkin and the backing fabric is too cute!
I stitched two designs from LK "Fall Crazy" and Toni-IL chose my ornament!
I did stitch and actually finished this before leaving Myrtle Beach.
LK "Christmas Is....." stitched on 28 ct. linen with WDW.
It was so much fun and I am so tired! I was amazed how little sleep these stitchers could operate on ...... I just couldn't hang that late every night. It was also great meeting fellow stitching bloggers Carolyn and Beth too. Beth was also housemate also and was too funny!
Well...better get back to laundry and unpacking. Can't wait until next year!
