Thanks to Andrea and Pam for a lovely weekend (first weekend in Nov)! We had a beading lesson, mini display of our stitched projects, 3 vendors, and Sunday brunch. Pam’s beading lesson on Saturday night sure was timely because I used one of the 3 methods for attaching the bugle beads which made it a lot easier.

And, Pam gave us a blank canvas, directions, and 2 skeins of DMC floss that could be stitched into a crazy quilt base for applying some lovely ribbon work. She’s offering a 2-day ribbon class at The Edwardian Needle in January. I sure hope the weather cooperates because Linda and I’ve been wanting a ribbon class. This will be perfect.

There were door prizes and Linda, Buff, and I won canvases!! Isn’t this cute.

I was almost able to finish the Bronze Purse on Sunday but was too tired to apply the final medallion and fill in another area when I got home. Monday was running errands. So, I finished it last Tuesday. I usually wait until after my ANG meetings to post a new finish but I’m getting behind on my blog postings! The Main Line Chapter meets tonight & we are loving our new Starbucks location in Wayne, PA.
