This is my fourth attempt to upload my pictures for last weekend.
As usual I enjoyed my time with Sue and the other Spargoians. I have introduced some new Spargoian terms.
The first is her basement/office is now Spargoian Head Quarters and the part of the second is shown below and is termed Temptation Alley.
One of the wonderful things about this class was the chance to meet with some of the members of the Yahoo groups I'm in.
I love absorbing my fellow classmates ideas and enthusiam.
There follows a lot of photos so you have been warned!!!!
Crimson Tide which I believe was the 2010 BOM. The french knots on the snowflakes are the perfect touch.
Some examples of the work being done by my classmates.
This and the following picture do not show how beatiful the colour choices are the flower and promegranate base are purple with a deep chocolate brown velvet. Breath taking and a colour combo I will have to try.
On Sunday I finally managed to master two stitches that in the past have been little so and so's.

Here are some pictures of my work since then. I finished the needlecase we started on Sunday and I'm trying very hard not to work on the table runner as I must work on Amanda's Christmas stocking.
Loved how this turned out. I used two different overdyed perles which just seemed to echo the center fabric perfectly.
Thats all for now folks.
