Tony Mineri's Class

As my stitching sister has informed you we had a wonderful time for the past two days with Tony. He is truly a wonderful teacher. We had a lot of laughs and a great time learning new techniques.
This is a picture of my piece for the class. It is a Shelly Tribbey canvas entitled Tea Time Tilley.
I have most of the tea cup finished. The most exciting thing about the tea cup is that Tony designed a stitch specifically for my canvas and named it the Lupiani Stitch. I was so shocked that he named a stitch for me. The Lupiani Stitch is the yellow section of the tea cup. This is a really fun piece to stitch. I still have a lot of work to do on it and look forward to finishing it. I am thinking of making it into a pillow for my sewing room.
This year has been filled with two wonderful stitching experiences for me - first Amy and now Tony. Both of them are excellent teachers and you learn so much from them. I cannot wait until next year when I get to experience them both again.
Off to work on the first Magi. Hope to have him done by next week and then hopefully I will have a week or two to work on Tilley.

Lucky girl. I love Tilly and your new namesake stitch too.

There is nothing more exciting than having a stitch named for you. Congraatulations! Tilly is awfully cute and I bet she'll make a magnificent tote bag one day....

How cool that you have a stitch named for you. I'm very impressed! Tony is great. I've had one class with him and look forward to more.
