Scrimshaw Pieces.....

I'm back from teaching my scrimshaw class! I had 14 students at Jeannine's Stitching Seminar in Williamsburg! We had a great time! Above are a couple of pieces I demonstrated in class! Hopefully, my students will continue on and make their own scrimshaw pieces for their stitching smalls!

While I was in Williamsburg I visited my son who is a William & Mary sophomore! He ran his first half marathon on Sunday! He finished 14th with a time of 1 hour 19 minutes! That's over 13 miles!

I also took a class from Sherri Jones last week. The Tale of Two Mermaids! It's going to be a fun project. I first have to finish the Hare Pyns Project I took from her last year! I fhave inished the stitching and am in the process of putting it together!

Well, it's back to my other two teaching projects (Mary Pierce Sampler and French Tie Up Basket). I also need to get started on my two Prairie Schooler Letters for the month of March!

Until next time,

I would love to learn how to do scrimshaw! I have a couple pieces I ordered through my guild, but I think that would be something fun to learn.

Sherri Jones has some great projects. Our Guild has her in, but I've never taken a class from her. One of these days.

How fun Holly that you taught that class - I am so not talented in the painting area.

I would love to take some classes by Sherri Jones, but sitting in Europe its probably not going to happen anytime soon. I still haven't finished that Brightneedle class from Elegant Stitch - just ran across it the other day while I was organizing my stash... sigh.

This scrimshaw class sounds so very fascinating! Now I have a new idea to research. Wish I was closer and attend.
