Earlier this month, our Chapter participated in the Heritage Quilters Show, held on October 2nd and 3rd at the United Methodist Church in Crown Point, Indiana.  Here are some photos from our little corner of the show.

It was a great exhibit!

September Show & Tell

We had a nice turnout for our September meeting, and there was much eye candy in the form of recently finished projects displayed at Show & Tell.  Here are the pieces completed by our talented members:

Becky M stitched these two cute Christmas ornaments.

Becky also completed this lovely little Peace picture.

Janet C knit this warm-looking hat,
and finished the scissor fob
which was a Chapter class taught earlier this year.

Marj H stitched this adorable Christmas tree picture...

... and thinking outside of the box, as always,
she made this original whole cloth crazy quilt pincushion
using a CD as a foundation...

...and she brought in this stunning Su embroidery of
Sun God Birds that was given to her as a gift.

 Pam S brought in this lovely sampler
which was a Chapter stitch-along a couple of year back...

...she finished this darling Christmas design as a box top...

...she stitched this gorgeous canvaswork piece...

...and finally she also stitched this cute little heart ornament.

Pat B stitched this "Count Twice Stitch Once" design,
finished as a drum pinkeep by
the talented Karen J,
also a Chapter member.

Renee R brought in a whole boatload of goodies.
Clockwise from top left: a redwork pillow,
two quilts, four pincushions, a scissor fob,
two potholders, and a ribbon work project
which was taught at last year's GLR fall seminar.

Finally, Wendy L stitched this
beautiful blackwork piece,
which was from the EGA Education catalog...
...and she also stitched this
cute little Stitching Friends piece,
which was featured at a
retreat that she attended earlier in the year.

Lovely work, Ladies.
Keep on stitching!

Fun at the Fair - Edited

Early August means it's time once again for the Lake County Fair.  Five of our members participated this year, and had a great time cheering each other on during Exhibitor's Night, despite the fact that the temperature in the building was 100 degrees!  Here are their exhibits from the Fair.  Apologies for the blurriness of some of the photos.  The display cases are dark!
