On Saturday evening, my stitching friends and I planned a surprise potluck / stitching evening for one of our group who recently defended her PhD and is now an official Dr. I like to call her Dr. Smarty Pants. For many of Adrienne’s fellow student friends, she stitched them a special gift when they defended their thesis. She chose Ink Circles “Metamorphosis” for it’s symbolic grace and beautiful design. She stitched it four (!!) times. When we knew that her defence was close, our group decided that we needed to stitch it for her. Each of us took one motif and took our turn adding our hand work and good wishes to the gift. As 2 of our members are the owners of our LNS (really – could I have better friends??) Kathy chose the fabric and threads and Neale framed it beautifully.
I stitched the design that is 2nd from the right. Now that we have finally given it to her, I think it qualifies as a finish and in my little world, a finish always means a new start – maybe two. Right?
Congratulations Dr. Adrienne, PhD Smarty Pants extraordinaire.
