ANG Seminar 2017, Anaheim

ANG Seminar is just about to get underway. People are heading west to Anaheim this year. Weather looks to be sunny and warm. Bill will be golfing with Harvey, whose wife Rita is also attending. And, I’m ready to pack our suitcases. Lots to bring!

I have to take my computer for Monday’s class with Cynthia Thomas. We’re going to learn how to make charts/diagrams using Microsoft Excel. Looking forward to that. I do some designing but have not invested in a program. I have relied on others for getting my hand drawn diagrams into something presentable. Hopefully, this will be sufficient for my needs.

In fact, the whole week I will be with Cynthia! For the following 4 days, I will work on 2 canvases in her Painted Canvas Embellishment Class. I sent her photos of 2 related canvases and she returned a suggested thread list (general enough to allow flexibility based on availability). Linda and I spent a great afternoon at Rittenhouse Needlepoint picking out threads. The canvases (13 count) are ones I bought on previous road trips. One is JP Bird of Paradise & Bamboo and the corresponding JP Orange Orchid & Bamboo; each are pictured with the threads I selected. Can’t wait to see what Cynthia has in mind for these and start stitching. No doubt certain sections will repeat in both canvases which is why she graciously agreed to these as my project. I believe that I’ll be focusing on the flowers during class. I will be finishing these as pillows.
