Long May She Wave Class

Last week I took a class called Long May She Wave by Ellen Chester of With My Needle. She is a WONDERFUL instructor and her instructions are great too! Here is my progress so far, I am about done. I only have the small flag at upper right to complete. Then all the parts will be cut out and put together to form a needle keep. I purchased the optional scrimshaw pieces - ruler and thread holder- that have the girl holding the flag and her dog on them. You can find more information about the project here. It was the April 12-14 classes hosted by Sampler Guild of the Rockies. I also took the Sampler Needlebook class mentioned at this link, but not the huswife. I will blog about the needlebook when I get more done on it, but it was designed especially for the Guild's 20th anniversary.

The stripes on the bigger flag are all different stitches and we had our choice of making the Betsy Ross Flag or the current 50 star flag. She gave us a mini history lesson about the flag too, along with some information about hornbooks. All and all a very nice day!!

The picture is purposely somewhat unclear at the request of the designer to avoid copying by unscrupulous folks. Now I know my followers would never steal anything, but this is the public Internet, so I am respecting her request. Her website may have better pictures.
