RO PACE's Pilot Class

This past weekend I participated in a pilot class with nationally known teacher, Ro Pace. We worked on "Memories of" which is a new class that she will be teaching next year at ANG Seminar in Milwaukee. I definitely recommend this class for anyone who is going to that seminar!

The class is definitely advanced, no tent stitches in sight! There are four color ways and I chose Solar Flare. There are lots of Hilton stitches. The design is based on Tessellations so it is composed of repeating units, but depending on the color way, each unit can appear very differently.

Here's my progress so far.


Finally, time to post!

I did start on a kangaroo cross stitch on our trip to Reno. This is a DMC kit that I bought on one of our trips to Australia. I didn't get a lot done, but it's a start! I plan to do the flowers in metallics, but I'm not sure about the greenery.
