So, what did you do in February?

A group of friends and I spent each Saturday in February taking a fun and informative class. 

Gale Washington is a local teacher who will be teaching this year at the National EGA Seminar in Naples, Florida, September 11-16, 2011.  She has recently returned to the needlework world and teaching after a hiatus.

We were fortunate to pilot her class for Naples!

It's a lovely design featuring a flamingo landing in the water.  Gale is a gracious lady who did an excellent job, not only teaching her design but giving us a brief historical overview of both florentine embroidery and pattern darning. 

My piece is almost finished.  We stitched each Saturday from 10:30 - 5:30 and got a lot done each day.  As soon as I finish mine, I'll post a picture.  Right now, it's a WIP.

If you have the opportunity, Gale's a great teacher and you will enjoy her class.  I know she'll be back teaching for us at Bedecked and Beadazzled, so watch our visiting teachers class page and join us for something a little different.

See you soon.

I love Flamingos and can't wait to see the finished project.
