Weekend workshop

Hi all, sorry for not being around for a bit, but have been busy with getting our condo in Florida emptied out and cleaned so that it will look good for perspective buyers. I also had to get some stitching done for a finishing workshop this past weekend.This piece is a friendship note case that came from the Examplary Needle Guild in New York.
I hope to get it finished sometime this week and I will post the finishing pictures. This is really a cute piece with a pad of post it paper and a small pencil wrapped with toile fabric photo copy and glued onto the pencil.
This is what the inside looks like = it is silk with two little pockets.

Thank you for stopping by. ROBERTA

Hi Roberta! Looks like a fun class! What a beautiful stitched piece. I love the initial R with the surrounding design, and the verse is absolutely beautiful!

Happy stitching,
Nancy
