June TEG Meeting and Pot Luck

Last night was the last meeting of the year of the Trillium Embroidery Guild.
We had a meeting, determined officers and other positions for next year, voted on the embroidered pieces for the three prizes, had 'show and share', and ate goodies.

Our TATA (Trillium Annual Themed Award) theme this year was 'animals'. There are two categories:

Charted/Adapted pattern
and Original Design
Jennifer's design won the Technical Award. Her design incorporates many of her passions: cats, music, Star Trek. thread painting, embroidery, etc. It is so creative and beautiful.
Diane's punch needle and embroidered pillow won in the Original design category.
Jeanette's peacock piece "Maxim and Zoya" won the award for the Charted/Adapted design. It is stitched over 1 thread on 32? count fabric.
Other entries included Bernie's sheep mounted on a badge.
Jennifer's painted thread Bee Eater designed by Trish Burr. Jen stitched this in one day at the last Elim retreat!
My 'Red Bird' punch needle piece designed by Karla Gerard and adapted to punch needle by Loretta Moore of 'Hooked On The Lake'.
Alda stitched the Red Macaw.
 This 'Heart of My Heart' piece is a Shepherd's Bush design.
Jen brought in a stitched piece of her beloved cat, Abby, from when Abby was a kitten.
She also brought in a kitty cat biscornu.
This is the back of it.
She finished up this one recently.
The detail on Marion's thread painted piece is exquisite.
Jeanette brought in her luggage tag made with embroidery stitch fabric.
It opens up to reveal the address or business card.
Alda shared this beautiful floral piece stitch on rather fine fabric.
Jen also shared this blackwork frame she stitched for this photo of Abby. The letters on the bottom are a 'kitty cat' font.
Jeanette shared her idea of using a decorative notepad with the magnetic closure for a needlecase. She took out the notepad and glued in several 'pages' of felt, cut to fit.
Our theme for next year was decided upon. It is 'smalls' - any small or miniaturized items such as needle cases, pin cushions, scissor fobs, etc.

I am always so inspired by my stitching friends.
