French Handsewers Smocking Arts Guild Meeting

Suzanne made this beautiful Bib in  a class with Saga Teacher Marie Yoland.

At our last SAGA meeting, we began a project to learn how to do Boutis.
I love this lovely technique!

All set and ready to stitch!
Our project will be a Pin Cushion. And we have homework.
Stitching homework is fun!

This little gown was turned in at the meeting.
Part of our mission as a SAGA guild is to stitch Wee Care items for local hospitals.

I love the way the sleeve was finished.  
Two Buttonholes were stitched in the sleeve, one inch apart.

Then a ribbon was laced through the two buttonholes, pulled up and tied in a bow.

This tiny Bonnet was made to go with it.  The brim folds back.

"As each one has received a special gift,
 employ it in serving one another as good stewards 
of the manifold grace of God."
1 Peter 4:10
