Congratulations on a Pandemic Finish - 3

Congratulations to Jayne on her completion of the Gilly Flower Trinket Box. It is a Betsy Morgan design that was taught to the Guild by Pauline V. in January and February, 2021. Beautiful work Jayne!
The summer challenge for 2019 was to create flags for our new banner. The response was quite outstanding; we received over 25 completed pennants. The next task was to assemble them into a banner. Jayne embroidered the name of the embroiderer on the backing for each flag and then members of the executive stitched the backs to the embroidered piece. Mike then assembled the flags into a string. Below are some close-up photos of two pennants, followed by the completed string.
Thanks to Mike for his vision for this project and thanks to all who participated.

Congratulations to Mary-Anne on her completion of the Spanish Sampler. Mike taught this sampler in 2018-2019. Mary-Anne started it on Feb. 29, 2020 and finished it on April 30, 2020. She stitched it with 2 threads of DMC except for the border where she used 3 threads. Notice how it even includes a reference to the Covid-19 in the alphabet section!
Here is a photo of our display at Fiberfest this year. Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time.

Congratulations to Joanne the winner of the 2018 President's Challenge to finish an original design that had been mothballed for a long period. We had 4 wonderful entrys this year. This stunning and impressive piece was the winner by a very large margin of the votes. Photos courtesy of Joanne.
