Hi, Everyone —
I’m in Southern California taking Ro Pace’s “Atlantis Rising” with the San Bernardino Chapter of ANG. I shared the pre-work with you in an earlier post. Harold and I fumbled through putting together a carrier for the project and it is working great!
I had searched the web for directions for the homemade carrier I saw at the Anaheim seminar, but never found them. Today, however, Diane gave me a copy of the official “Project Safe” directions by Judy Rager! I think this might make a good chapter program for next year!
So, I’ve now finished two days of stitching on Atlantis Rising. This is a very complicated design with lots of Jean Hilton stitches. I am enjoying the class camaraderie and I always enjoy the Hilton stitches because they cover a large area with only a few stitches! Yesterday, we did Jessicas, Reverse Jessicas, Bargello, and a few Amadeus stitches! Today we did Double Fans, a Walnetto, a Starfle, Crescents, Sprat’s Heads, and Chilly Hollows! Who knew there were so many stitches!
In addition to the kit, I purchased two possible glass “spoons” to be mounted near the peak of the mountain (although the class has noticed that the current progress makes it look like a Furby with teeth and square ears!). Here are my two possible choices for the “spoon” or I may decide to choose a pendant from my jewelry box at home!
I’ve been getting lots of ideas for new programs, new meeting features, and gadgets! I even met someone who regularly visits her friend in Randolph, NJ and who wants to join us for one of our stitching sessions!
Your piece is stunning, Rosie. I like both pendants and I think that either would look great on your piece. All those stitches, I am sure you are in heaven! Sue
Beautiful piece. Can’t wait to see it in person.
Wow, that’s going to be amazing! I hope you’ll keep posting photos often. Looking forward to seeing it progress.
