2017 Year in Review - 12/31/17

December 31, 2017-- Happy New Year!  With all the traveling we've done this year, I still managed to complete a few projects shown below.  Click on the caption of each photo for more details.  
2018 promises to be as much fun if not more than 2017 with lots of new projects.  On the agenda are trips to Southern California, Oregon State, Arizona State, ANG Seminar in Washington, DC, a class in February in Maryland (Toni Gerdes' Fire & Ice ), a stitching retreat to Winterthur in Wilmington, Delaware in March, another stitching retreat in Ocean City, MD.   Lots to keep me excited and engaged in this wonderful passion.

Rehoboth Beach, DE Needlework Exhibit - 12/30/17

December 30, 2017--News:  the Needlework Exhibit in Rehoboth Beach, DE will be held in September/October of 2018.
The museum's director recently wrote....."As many of you know, the Historical Society, which operates the museum, has been raising money to complete construction on the second floor. We have finally raised enough money to begin construction and we will do so beginning January 2, 2018. Construction will continue through at least the end of April, 2018. This means that the Needlework exhibit will not be held at its regular time in 2018. We will hold the exhibit in September and October of next year. This would mean drop-off dates of mid-to-late August, and opening the weekend of either Labor Day or the week after, and a pick-up the last weekend of October. One benefit of this time frame is that it moves the exhibit farther away from the Woodlawn exhibit, and gives the exhibit the chance to be seen by more visitors."
This is good news for those who participate in both exhibits (Woodlawn and Rehoboth Beach) and about the museum's 2nd floor construction. Actual exhibit dates will be published once they are known.
