Early in the week I stitched up a tiny owl for someone whose partner jammed out in the Wild Olive Stitch Swap. . I know what it's like to have a partner who turns out to be a dud, so when Mollie asked if I'd stitch up a little something, of course I said yes.
Thursday I went into Vancouver, which means a long ride on the ferry. I always take something to stitch because even though the scenery is beautiful, I still need to work on something. Thankfully it was a beautiful day! I'm currently working on an embroidered design from Marie Claire Idees which is a French magazine, but like most good magazines, the instructions include enough pictures that you can get by without actually knowing how to read French. If you can read French, like me, all the better! There's a sneak peek in this picture of my project for Sara's Purse Palooza. My day to guest post on Sara's blog is June 15th, you should definitely check it out!
I'm not sure if ever I mentioned that I'm a student in Rachel's Handstitched Camp. I was lucky enough to get in before registration filled up. Today I finished buying the fabrics I'll need to make the class medallion quilt. The need for more fabric was one of my reasons for going to Vancouver. There's a tiny little quilt shop called Spool of Thread that only stocks the most current modern collections, including every Kona solid! I picked up what I needed to go with my original release Freshcut (yes, I've been hoarding it THAT long!) I'm super excited to get started on the class. I hope to connect with lots of other handstitchers!
Now it's your turn to show off your projects!
I just ask a few things of you:
1. link only projects with some handstitching
2. link to a specific post
3. use the linky party button (found in my sidebar) in your post, so others can easily find the party and join in
4. visit other Handmade Parade partiers
