Reliving the Fun of Bargello

The 12th, 13th and 14th were needlework filled days. Sometimes I wish I could just spend time with needlework (sigh). 

The 12th was a fundraising luncheon for the EGA chapter to our south. 75 needleworkers in one place! The speaker was Joyce Lukomski and her topic ostensibly was Historic Needlework. In reality it was about the growth of needlework and the sisterhood it creates. So true. It was great to be included in this sisterhood.

The 13th and 14th was a workshop with Joyce. The project a small bargello based piece with beaded accents (handle, closure, etc.). I always learn so much in Joyce's workhsops. So for 2 days I drove over an hour each way to just stitch and chat with about 25 other stitchers. It was a wonderful break in routine.
