November meeting and October update

Business first: Our next meeting will be Monday, November 16th. Everyone that wants to have their GCC Oksana's Sampler critiqued must bring it to the meeting. Marsha will be mailing them out that week. Remember to include your name, chapter name and EGA member number on a tag and attach it to your sampler.

We will continue the HandBlessings piece from October at this meeting. Anyone needing help with it or who just want to finish it bring it for stitching. Anyone finished with it (and I know there are some) be sure to bring it so we can all see the finished products.

Joyce did a good job teaching the HandBlessings piece and I think everyone enjoyed her class. This is an excellent choice for beginners and for any stitcher needing a break from a complicated project. It was stitchers choice for threads and canvas and we had some lovely combinations. Of course, I forgot to get my camera out -- duh (ladies, please remind me next meeting to take some pics). If memory serves me correctly, there were a couple Christmas-y colors, a Spring-y one and an Autumn-y one and possibly others BUT since I forgot to take pics .... and my memory isn't always the greatest .....

I'll just close this with a holiday greeting from my favorite friendly ghouls:
