Good day to all,
Late start, but now have hit the floor running. Getting a couple of kits out the door and packing. I will be in Birmingham, Al-teaching for a regional Share A Stitch this weekend.
I will be dropping in at Hoffman Distributors to see the staff and say hello. Would be nice if I saw a few of my charts off to new homes.
I am packing up some reference books and finishing supplies to help the students in Studio Time.
I am still working the kinks out of the Day of the Dead Piece. I hope to get that finished and out the door. No, I am not going Goth. I am doing a piece for a Retreat at the Salty Yarn Ocean City, MD in October the 14-16th. The Day of the Dead is the holiday to celebrate loved ones that have passed to the other side. I am working in bright colors and there will be a hornbook thread page and a paper pin book decorated with a line drawn skull. We will be working with wool and it should be fun. 410-289-4667 for a reservation and more details.
I have finished dyeing a canvas bag that we will be embellishing with ribbon and charms in September at 3 Stitches in Spring, Texas 281-320-0133 for mor details.
I just finished a bag to go with the Maritime Sewing box. It is based on an antique bag that I own. We will be painting the fabric along with painting the linen and constructing part of the sewing box and the bag at a retreat in September at Sit n' Stitch in Toluca Lake, CA. 818-760-9330 for a reservation and more details.
Well, I will post more and keep you up to date on the packing. I am going back into my basement to orgainze-well as close to it as I can.
