Stitching With Kerry

Busy days getting kits ready and searching for a rainbow of threads.

Our guild had visiting artist Kerry Green teach a sweet class on embellishing. We began our individual creations of these cute Blossom Sewing Tucks.

Getting side-tracked admiring Kerry's beautiful bag and bucket!

A few of us brought little samplers we were working and soaked up Kerry's wonderful advice.

Everyone enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and found the rhythm of our stitching. There was a little salad buffet for lunch and great company as we stitched.

Here are a few close ups for reference as you ladies finish up your projects. We'll be excited to see the finished sewing tucks and your smiling faces!

Thanks Kerry for a wonderful class and for your enthusiasm and patience!

So Many Projects...

...So little time! I guess I better get myself more organized!  I really can't believe this month is half way over.  We even get an extra bonus day - but I am the lucky one who has an appointment to have a root canal done that day. Yippee.  The studio has been well used this month.  Lots of wool dying and project days with friends, sleep overs with cute little grand kiddos, and hours of pondering and sketching going on.

Lisa taught us some fun new embroidery stitches to embellish our wool projects with. 
We are enjoying them so much!

 We sure know how to make a creative mess!

I'm excited to present the latest pillow slips for Needles and Friends! I have enjoyed creating these each month and I am thinking
about putting a little book together with the patterns.
Two more projects to go! 


A new woolie project designed for a retreat I am 
teaching for Peace By Piece next month. 

And...if all goes well, we will be having an Spring Open House 
in the studio next month...more info to come.
