A Day with Catherine

  My EGA chapter had a workshop today with Catherine Theron.  Eighteen ladies from our region gathered here in the burg for a day of fun, laughter, and stitching with one of my favorite designers.  The sampler she taught is called "Morning has Broken" and is pictured here.

Anything with a house and I am pretty much in.  Make it a red house and I am totally there. Let the house be off-center and I am on the moon!  This definitely rang all the bells!
  Catherine is a wonderful teacher.  I've taken more than one class with her and she is always charming, witty, and  manages to keep things moving so everything gets covered.  Here she is (standing) with our Special Events Coordinator.

The time passed quickly.  We learned some new things.  Got reacquainted with some old things, or things we didn't get quite right the first time we learned them (i.e: Spiral Trellis Stitch!! Don't know if I'll ever get this one  right!!).  Here as some of the ladies with noses to the grindstone.

A great day and a good time had by all!  I'm looking forward to our next class together.


  1. Wow! What a beautiful sampler! I bet that class was amazing.

    Can I ask what those craft lights are that many people seem to have at their table? I've never seen that particular style, and it looks like a lot of the people have the same model so I'm assuming it must be a good brand. Thanks!

  2. I'm just like you..... Love me a red house!!!!! Stunning sampler....

  3. That's is a gorgeous sampler! Do you know if that is a class only piece? I'd love to have that one!

    Looks like a great day!!

  4. Oh what fun, Laura! I recognize several of those ladies in the pictures.

    Catherine is delightful! I've taken several classes with her!

    I know everyone had a great time!


  5. Love the piece and I know you had a great time!

  6. That is such a wonderful piece. I love the colors in it. It looks like you had a wonderful time.

  7. That is the prettiest sampler--I've seen preview pictures on the web and have wished I could take the class. I agree--off center red house, sheep on the lawn and what a glorious border!


I appreciate your comments, they make me smile!
