It's Here! It's Here!

Today I received my book for the 18th century sampler by SJ Designs and it is fabulous.

I obviously can't show you the inside of the book for copy write reasons, but it is VERY well done. Tons of detailed instructions, graphs and images (some even fold out). I especially like the first page, it shows that a lot of thought went into creating this class book. I can't wait to start up working on it :)

In other news, I'm not sure if I mentioned this on the blog but back in December I decided to join the EAC which is the Embroiders' Association of Canada with EAC Virtual Threads as my home guild. I had so much fun in May with the stitchers of the Lakeshore Creative Stitchery Guild that I decided to also join their guild (I really should update my sidebar with their logos). My membership started at the beginning of the month and yesterday I went to my first stitch meeting with the evening group. I really enjoyed it, the time flew by so fast. I can't wait till the next one! We might not necessarily get a lot done but we'll have a lot of fun together :)


  1. Sounds like you're in for a lot of good stitching time.

  2. WOW! What a great time you're going to have stitching this beauty!!

  3. Lovely book! And a Guild! So very exciting!

  4. Wow, a whole book dedicated to your new project! I'm going to enjoy following your progress on this one.
    Edelweiss was so beautiful when you competed all the cutwork and I loved your sister's photograph of it against the light.
    I also enjoyed your TW story about the Peacock Tapestry. Have you seen the competition I'm hosting on the TW blog to win a chart? Even if you have it, you'll enjoy the quiz I set.

  5. You'll get a lot of wonderful encouragement from the Guild now, as well as the 'net!

  6. Another wonderful project. Looks very interesting.
