Sampler Guild of Rockies Meeting Report

Yesterday was the Sampler Guild of The Rockies last meeting for the year. We meet on the second Sunday of the month Sept to May from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm. Since the second Sunday in May is Mother's Day, we meet on Saturday in May. This is also the time we celebrate the Guild's Birthday and have a Pin Cushion Exchange.

Here is the pin cushion I made. It is from The Prairie Schooler Book No. 115, Pins and Needles (c) 2004. I changed the head of the pins by using beads.

I made this label for the gift bag.... is the card I made to go with it. 
Inside I wrote the design information for the recipient and signed my name.

In return I received a lovely Flowers pin cushion (a Lizzie and Kate design) stitched by Nancy P. Didn't she do a great job? I just love it, especially the ribbon edging!!

 She also included this cute little potted flowering plant. It fits right in with my other house plants!

We also had a very fun make and take and most folks were able to finish it during the meeting, me included. 

This button scissor fob, was very fun to and not too difficult. It is based on a necklace the lady who taught us this made and everyone admired. 

As always, everyone received a birthday gift in honor of the Guild's birthday!

 by In the Company of Friends.

I think that is the report for now. 

Happy Stitching!!!!

Sampler Guild of the Rockies

I love my Sampler Guild of The Rockies. Such great ladies, fun projects and tasty food. This month we meet on Saturday, May 10 because our usual Sunday date is Mother's Day. It is also the last meeting until September, so lots of fun things happen at the May meeting.

We usually have a birthday celebration of some sort for the Guild and also a stitched pin cushion exchange. I forgot about the exchange and started late.......

But I have made good progress since this photo was taken a day or tow ago, but so as not to spoil the surprise I will only post this photo for now. I will provide the finished photo and a photo of the one I get as an exchange after the meeting!
