I cannot believe there is only one more newsletter for this year after this one. Where has the time gone? I hope you all have lots of completed work to look at so that, you can see that you have achieved something worthwhile and that this year has been a productive one at least as far as embroidery goes.
I am sure we have all longed to pack it in and head for the wild blue yonder at some stage. Most of us never get there, but our erstwhile treasurer, Wendy Hutton and her husband Brian are doing just that. They are spending the next three months in the USA catching up with family, then back in South Africa they are going to travel in their newly acquired caravan and get to see things we don’t even read about in travel magazines. Thank you, Wendy for your sterling work over the last number of years on our committee. We are going to miss you greatly, but we don’t begrudge you the time for yourself at all. We all hope it will be better than your wildest dreams.
Now back to business. Carol Robinson has designed a fun project for us to do which will be completed in one lesson. It’s a key tag, but I’m sure you creative people will be able to do many things with it – Christmas tree decorations, earrings – (exotic ones, admittedly), handbag accessories, and many other things. It is designed to be fun, and the Guild is sponsoring this one. Carol’s instructions are as follows, and the final result in the picture.
This project is designed to be completed during the morning or afternoon meeting. Tuesday 19th November and Saturday 9th November. The perle cotton (8 and 5), wooden bead, gold thread and gold beads are included in the kits. Each lady is to please bring : tapestry needles – size 22/24/26 (embroidery needle with large eye can also work), a needle threader if they use one and normal scissors. If you haven’t yet put your name down to do the project and would like to do it, please contact Carol Robinson as soon as possible.
