Happy New Year!

Hi A new year, and a very busy start! I have been working on designs I sketched as fundraisers for EAC Seminar 2016. My guild along with four other guilds are working together to put this Seminar in place. It is interesting to learn the process. I am almost done my to go. I would love to post them but they have to stay a surprised... The EAC cyber guild is very active. This guild is known as Virtual Threads. It is quite the energetic group. We have many things going on. I am running a Stitch a Month project. We are taking one stitch and on a small linen page, creating variations of that stitch. These linen pages will later be anchored to felt and then made into a book. For some, they wished a sampler and I have given them a pattern for that with each square of the sampler being a stitch. There are lots of opportunities to "make it your own" with linen choice, threads and colours. Our next meeting starts this Monday. I am working on a sampler through EGA Cyberstitchers. It is a neat sampler. I decided to complete the sampler over 2 instead of over 1... I have a couple designs to send to magazines now, will let you know how that goes too. I hope your new year has started of well! Happy Stitching Beamish
