Memories of Stitching classes

Each Christmas I pull out these hand stitched decorations and hang them in the archways of my living room. This year as I put them away I felt a surge of happy stitching memories. I feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity of taking lessons from Lynn Payette on a weekly basis or 5 or 6 years.
It was an open class room. At times we were working on one of Lynn's designs or we were working on a project or our own. Each year Lynn would design a Christmas decoration or two and the entire class would participate in stitching it.
(The date denotes when the stitching was completed.)

I learned so much and have such great respect for Lynn. She is truly a great teachers. If you get the opportunity to take a class with her don't pass it up.


  1. your work is amazing-so beautiful

  2. Your work is, indeed, beautiful. Did you create the ornament backing and finishing yourself? They are all so lovely.

  3. They are beautiful - I particularly like the birds - your stitching is wonderful.

  4. I took two classes with Lynn at the EGA National Seminar 2010. I envy you your ongoing workshops with her. I love her presentation and her designs.

  5. How wonderful!!! I love this idea and think I might have to steal it! It would be great to create the annual Elliott family it!

    And I did take a class from Lynn at one point and did enjoy it but it was soooooo long ago. It was a dragon....

  6. These are wonderful heirlooms for you to use every year. Your stitching is wonderful.
