ANG Seminar 2019 – Day 1

Standard

Today was the first day of classes at the Houston ANG Seminar.  I flew in yesterday along with Jill W and Robin M.  The Marriott Marquis is a fabulous hotel and i hope to find time to enjoy all it has to offer along with all the Seminar activities.

My first class is Abyss with Toni Gerdes.  This piece is a companion to her Fire and Ice and i think this piece is the better of the two.  We began with the center front (short teal column which is actually done!) and worked towards the back left. We ended the day with the right center column.  The rationale for working front to back is to establish the boundaries for the front columns before working those behind.  You really can’t see how the columns overlap yet nor how the are like columns of ice.  The stitches in each column are very interesting and the thread combinations wonderful.  The challenge for me is not only working on Congress Cloth but doing the multi-layer stitches with very similar colors.  Still, I love the piece and look forward to working the rest of the columns.

I was amazed how much work we got done today:
