Saga Retreat Fun...cont.

Above you see Looped Bullions and  Buttonhole flowers.
The second day  Class was embroidery.

The Newspaper was printed in 1914
The design we used in class was actually designed as a Money Bag.  We were making it as a Potpourri Bag.  The design came from the Newspaper page pictured above.

We stitched the Padded Scallops to finish the raw edge of the fabric. 

Here is Wanda taking a picture (with permission) of the Class Project using her I Pad.  
It certainly is a new world we are living in!

One of the stitches we worked in class was the Chain Stitch.

One of the students brought in a very neat book.  The pages were illustrated with stitching, then photographed.  And the Chain Stitch was everywhere.

This is the book, if you are interested.

We also worked Padded Eyelets in class.
We were pretty busy!

Joan has been working hard.

One more day to come....
