Happy New Year!!!

Wow, we are finally in 2017!  It seems like 2016, was a very rough year in more ways than one.  Here's hoping 2017 brings us great blessings and lots of stitching time.

The last couple months have been quite busy.  We spent our November meeting learning how to assemble our 2016 Tudor Rose Sampler Guild Ornament, a photo of Sue S.'s ornament is below.  Our ornament this year was designed by Betty H.  Thank you Betty for the sweet ornament and teaching us new ways to finish our projects.  You have such a great way of showing us the simplest way to turn our stitching into beautifully finished treasures.
