This was my selected class at ANG Seminar in Myrtle Beach; Empire of the Sun by Toni Gerdes. I was thrilled that I got my first choice!
We worked on a panel at a time, learning new stitches and some new tips and tricks. A few of the girls at the shop always ask me “so why do you take classes so often?” To learn, I answer! and secondly, it is being with everyone. It is the journey for me, not necessarily the destination.
I think that this was my favorite! Pattern couching using 2 colors of silk.
Toni was lending a little helping hand to my seatmate. I was thrilled to be in class with Dinny and she has been a stitching mentor for me for a very long time. And a great person to hang out with!
On Thursday during seminar, the Life Patron Luncheon is held! A great lunch, a wonderful gift of a hand made scissors block made with local woods and then a speaker, talking about samplers of years gone by stitched by very young girls of the “low country.”
Thursday evening was nothing exciting, since at that point I had decided I was leaving earlier than originally planned…so I was packing and planning. I am sad that I left early, but glad that I did and my thoughts and prayers go out to all of the Carolinians (is that a word?)
