Trillium Embroidery Guild November Meeting

Last week our embroidery guild met. We had a pretty good turnout for our 'make and take' program where we created a Christmas card using paper with perforations and embroidery floss.

I picked the one with the Christmas trees. It had 6 small adhesive pearls, and a gold seal. We stamped a Christmas greeting on the white card that was then affixed to the gold seal, then with puffy stickers, attached to the front of the card. We then attached the trees by backstitching them and then folding up the sides.
Inside, we covered the embroidery ends with a piece of paper and stamped a greeting inside the card.
A graphic insert was put into the envelope and voilà! it was done. If I sent Christmas cards, I would have picked up a couple more kits.
There was lots for show and tell this month.

Jeanette finished stitching this at the Elim retreat, then finished it at the Toronto Embroidery Guild meeting. She said it only took a few minutes to do the finish.
Sue started this a few years back and finally got it finished and framed. I like all the leaves around the border.
Sue also finished this stamped cross-stitch wolf piece.
Laura embroidered this beaver using a backstitch and several patterns.
Shelley created a beautiful music-themed quilt for her daughter's university graduation.

It was machine quilted with musical notes.

Laura also created this adorable bat needle keep.

Jeanette got to display her cabinet with the drawers adorned with her embroidery. We got to witness the drawer pulls being attached at the retreat.
Next month we will meet a week early for our potluck Christmas celebration with finger foods.

Next Sunday, Kim is having a bunch of us over for a free Zentangle session and the week after  a few stitchers are coming over to finish some Christmas ornaments.
