Silver Bella, what a ride

This was my first Silver Bella and what an amazing experience it was! To be surrounded by amazing women artists who "get it" how wonderful is that? I plan to post photos over this week but wanted to do a quick Embroidery Swap follow up... This is my amazing swap partner, Marilee of Rose Brier Studio

Here we are just after we exchanged our embroidery samplers. The one Marilee created for me is simply stunning and reflects so many of the things I love best. This indeed is a treasure.

A fun little snap shot of me with my daughter, Cristina of Sweet Pea Ink

and the fabulous Teresa McFayden the founder of Silver Bella and artiste extraordinaire.


Just arrived home and have caught a silly head cold...too much fun me thinks, lol.


Glad to be home but oh what fun I had....

Hi, Catherine. Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. I love to embroider (as well as a bunch of other hobbies), and my mother was an expert. I cherish some of the items she gave me before she died. Lovely things.

What a lovely blog Catherine. I see your artistic talents greatly outshine mine! I love to look at the art of others. Glad to hear of someone who actually went to Silver Bella. I think I'd need a buddy so I didn't feel too far into the deep end of the pool! I have a friend here in mind tho she doesn't know it yet. ;-)

Wow, you're really good with the needle!
I have done some embroidering but am far away from talented people like you. Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful samplers. I remember seeing yours a few days ago when I was blog hopping via Shimelle's forums.

Hi...just found you at the blog list at Simelle's class. Thought I would stop by and say hi...then I saw you went to SB...I went last year and so enjoyed it. I ADORE your embroidery! I took a class last year with Rebecca Sower and we did similar embroidery on cuffs for our wrists. I posted about it last year on my blog...www.spoonjarchronicles.typepad.com
