We had our final Guild meeting for the year on Wednesday night and it was the return of the Round Robins! We started exchanging these in September so in all there were 10 exchanges, once per month. The lay-out was Christmas trees, but always being one to be different, I didn't go with a traditional theme and chose Celtic knots, to follow in my Irish/Scottish heritage. And because I love the meaning of what Celtic knotwork represents, that of neverending life.
I sent along a variety of gold and green threads and fibres along with my fabric and stitched the top element of the tree. And look at the gorgeous tree that I got in return. Its breathtaking!!! Several of the ladies stitched over-1 for their sections and there was a lot of Petite Treasure braid used, I only wished all the sparkly showed up better in the picture. What a wonderful keepsake I have!
Today is official moving day for Kristy! This afternoon we have borrowed a friend's truck to move her boxes, bed and dresser. And our first official day as a foster home now that we have our official approval, signed, sealed and delivered. Tomorrow is a family get-together with my clan, poor girl, we throwing her right into the frying pan!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
