Local ASG Christmas Party

I attended our local ASG Christmas Party today at the Shenandoah Club. I wore my Red Melton Wool jacket that I embellished with the Babylock Embellisher and Clover Felting Tool. My husband took a photo of me prior to the batteries dying. (Unfortunately the photo was a head shot, nothing shows of the jacket.) I took a few shots of the jacket hanging in my sewing room. Hopefully I can get a photo from our club photograhper as well who took several shots. Here are the ones of the jacket hanging.

This is the front. It consists of wool roving, various yarns and colorful trim. This was based on a project in a needle felting book by Indygo Junction.

This a photo of the back.

This is a close up of the collar.



I was elected Treasurer today also. I have been in the chapter since moving here and have met some very nice sewists.

We had a fashion show with many of the members modeling numerous projects worked on this past year. It included pretty "Fan" Jackets as well as some other nice jackets, dresses and vests. I hope to try to enter something next year. Much of what I saw today was very inspiring. I must carve out more time to work on these special projects.

Tomorrow I will start on some quick Christmas sewing. I also want to continue to embroider my denim jacket.

  5. Oh, I am so sorry I missed it. I had a violin recital and a singing school concert. I bet everyone looked stunning.
