Christmas Pines...

... for 2010 EGA Heartland Fall Seminar! I stitched more models so they can be displayed at the upcoming 2010 EGA Heartland Spring Seminar. I thought it would be fun to use different fabrics, fibers and colors. Moreso, I'm making companion pieces as included in my proposal was how to finish other fiber-filled sewing accessories. Further details for the first stitched piece was posted here. Notice that I added a gold-tone daisy and pearl at the center of roof on the recent models.

So there you go, since the contract is with me already, I can now announce that I'll be teaching a half day class at the Fall Seminar on October. Mississipi River Valley Chapter will be sponsoring the said event... will talk about further details later on. I was extremely excited when I recieved the invitation, and I can't wait for it to come! I love the fact that I'll be able to spend time with fellow stitchers, and talk about our needlwork passion.
I started making "korona" (a Tagalog term which means crown) pincushion last year so I thought it would be great to make a new series of them.

Another good news I wanna share is that I was invited to be the Guest Speaker and teacher at a local EGA chapter on next year's anniversary! It's also a gathering I can't wait to partake. It's a dream come true for me to be able to teach my love of 3D hand finishing.

Also, to other EGA chapters (which I will mention the chapter names when the right time comes), thanks to all of you for including one of my works in your upcoming workshops. I'm in the process of finishing more on-site and off-site exclusive teaching pieces aside from the ones you already saw. Please extend your patience with me as I try to accomodate all your requests. Slowly but surely as the saying goes... I still want to do 100% of the work on my models... from designing to stitching (and sometimes a lil' frogging) to finishing. I'm so humble with your requests and can't wait to see your completed pieces.

And lastly, I finally managed to finish more models for TGOSM... and want to apologize sincerely to Kirsten for taking these models to reach her... and very thankful for the break. I know it's been quite a while but I can't wait to share new finishing ideas.

I look forward to a great and busy stitching week! I hope you do too!
