The Callaway Gardens resort/conference center in Pine Mountain, Georgia has a needlearts school every January. For the past two years my EGA group have volunteered to set up the exhibit, merchandise night and the bookstore.
I only took pictures of my pieces in the exhibit because of privacy.
Below is my Sanctuary which is sewn to a cranberry piece of felt which I think will lay in my glass top coffee table - I received a blue ribbon for this piece.
Below is from Blackbird Designs - Joyeux Noel - received a yellow ribbon for this.
I just love the frame that I had found at the framers.
This is Rain Rain and I framed it myself from a yardsale find and some distressing - it didn't win a ribbon - but that is OK.
This piece is from a National Seminar with teacher Susan Goodman. I call it House in the Garden - it also won a yellow ribbon.
Below are the goodies that I bought either at Merchandise night or at the boutique (the Needle Bug from Montgomery was the shop this year - great shopping)
These shaker boxes is from a gentleman from Virginia who comes every year to Merchandise Night, his work is just gorgeous.
From the Needle Bug these cute catch alls
Of course, I saw these cute little Lantern Moon bags and just had to have them.
as well as these scissors (can never have enough) and stitching tools.
Look at these project bags they are mess and very light to carry, just love the colors of these.
Below, upside down are some books that I bought
The piece du resistance!!! is there is a wonderful shop in the small town of Pine Mountain who sells Vera Bradley = look at what I bought at 40% off - it still was a hefty sales slip, but I just love this pattern and had to buy almost everything there was with this pattern.
To top it all off - the VB was put into this cute little bag - do you think I have enough project bags???
Well, that is it for now, have been getting some stitching done and will try to get some photos posted soon.
Thank you for stopping by
