Preface piece for Friends...... (116)

I was up early and at a plant sale sponsored by our local tech school by 7:00AM. They had a ton of plants at very reasonable prices (thank MA)! Now on to getting them in the ground; I don't really enjoy playing in the dirt, so it's more a matter of me directing hubby where to dig.

For my Stroll piece today, I am sharing a preface piece from a class I took with Betsy Stinner in 1998. Betsy was a fabulous teacher who imparted a lot of knowledge coupled with a wicked sense of humor. I was blessed to have taken a few of her classes when she came to teach at Twisted Threads. Sadly, I have never completed the actual class pieces but recently stumbled across the "practice" pieces we did in class. This one is from Friends Sampler and is so sweet and delicate; I think I'll make it into a pincushion or biscornu.


I'm excited because I have a "date" tonight! For my birthday back in December, my hubby got tickets to see Beautiful at the Altria Theater here in Richmond. I've been waiting patiently for 4 months; I've always loved Carole King's music!

Thanks for stopping by and your "twisted threads" of friendship!

  2. What a pretty piece! I can also see it framed or turned into a tiny wall hanging. Enjoy your date and show this evening.

  3. Hope Beautiful is wonderful and that you have a great time! (Carole King! now "Sweet Seasons" is playing in my head)

    Betsy Stinner did some amazing designs, didn't she? I never had the opportunity to take a class from her, but did meet her at a Spirit of Cross Stitch Festival ages ago. That's a lovely piece, and now you make me want to work on the Castleton Sampler....
