charm sampler class
We switched gears on Sunday and worked on samplers. Above is Lucy's amazing VW bug sampler, all planned out and ready to stitch. Isn't it adorable?
It was so much fun to watch how the students' samplers took shape. Above is Brenda's...I love the Holly Hobbie charm!
Carol's is looking very "Mary"...so sweet!
Hillary had planned to make a red, white, and blue sampler but was so inspired by the kit and samples that she changed her mind...it's looking so lovely!
Jamie used a Sunbonnet Sue her mom had made and built a lovely sampler around it, using the quote "Grandmas are antique little girls" as the theme!
Jenn stitched a tiny little version of herself with dinosaur silhouettes. She plans on creating the grid beneath them and stitching bones...isn't that so clever?! She's an amazing dinosaur artist/pastry chef/brilliant girl. So much fun to have her in class!
Julie planned ahead with a little stitching journal filled with sketches and ideas to help her along...love the paddle ball!
The other Julie brought an amazing treasure trove of trinkets, charms, buttons, etc, including the most adorable original shrinky dinks that her children made when they were young.
I love the flag that Lori stitched...and she even made a little dress for her tiny naked baby.
And I love the real thimble charm she dangled onto the stitching square!
Margaret came prepared with a patchworked piece to use in place of the grid. Love!
Can you tell how much fun we were having?
p.s. If you're wishing you'd come, why not sign up for my Happy Go Lucky Stitchalong over at Big Picture Classes. For a limited time, it's only $10 (regularly $20). It's really going to be so much fun.
