Bronze Purse Progress at EGA Stitch ‘n Chat

Thanks to my ANG Main Line Chapter member Patrick who is also President of the Embroidery Guild of America (EGA) Brandywine Chapter, our members have been invited to attend a talk by Doug Kreinik if we join EGA or Delaware Valley Historical Sampler Guild (DVHSG).

Today, I joined 8 EGA members at a Stitch ‘n Chat at Shirley H’s house. Among all her beautiful needlepoint, I recognized her piece, Roses, from seeing it a few years ago at the Rehoboth Needlepoint Exhibit. It won Best in Show! All the ladies were nice and welcoming.

They were all working on different projects which is fun to see. And, I got quite a bit done in the 4-hour session excluding our lunch break. This is the Toni Gerdes Bronze Purse that I started at Blue Bonnet in February.  Today, I finished the bottom left corner including the dark brown laid stitches with the sparkly diagonal cross stitches. And, I finished the honey bronze diagonal wavy Smyrna pattern. I’ll add beads in the open spaces later.
