EGA Projects

Some of you may remember that I am working on the Master Craftsman for Counted Thread, which is an EGA program. There are Master Craftsman programs for a  variety of techniques. They have recently posted the requirements for Step One of each program. Click on this link to learn more.

I finished Step One awhile ago and had put Step Two, Assisi, on the back burner. Well, I finally completed it and it has been evaluated and returned to me. I passed, so my next step will be Blackwork. It may take me awhile to finish that one as well!

I started with a photo a took of the Sanibel lighthouse a couple of years ago.

With a bit of artistic license I came up with this design done in the Assisi style.

I also completed two Group Correspondence Courses through EGA. More information can be found at this link.

The first was a course that was retiring and I wanted to take it before it was no longer available. It is an Italian drawn thread piece called Angelina. It has been sitting folded up for a few months so is pretty crinkly.

The second is a Teneriffe piece I just finished. I've been keeping it in a plastic CD case so it is still in pretty decent shape!

Next week is our Heartland Region Seminar. I will start two new projects while there. We'll see how long it takes until I finish those!
