Hi Folks, It’s been some time since posting, but have no fear, I am still here.
Many of you know that I host “Stitch Therapy Tuesday” every week at my studio where A group of sewing friends come to my studio for a few hours of stitching, conversation and of course, food. Yes, that’s right: we eat lunch together too.
Everyone brings her own projects to work on, which is quite interesting and informative, and we love seeing what each other is doing during the week. We bounce ideas off each other and sometimes we plan a project for a guinea pig class. We support each other in good times and not so good times, and provide “therapy” as needed. We are all members of the GNO SAGA chapter guild and have been friends for over 25 years.
Our group of about 20 participants, communicate via GroupMe app during the week while we sew. We are a driven group whose projects are quite varied. We each bring something different to the table. I would like to share with you just a few of the projects we have been working on since the quarantine. What talent!
Keep in mind that this is only the photos they have shared with me, and does not include every project they are working on. Stay tuned for Part B in a separate post.
Hi Folks, It’s been way too long since I last posted on my blog. Truthfully, I just haven’t felt up to sharing with you, mostly due to my father’s illness and death. Okay, that’s been 4 years ago, but I swear, it takes a long time to get over some things, and this one threw me for a loop! I can honestly say that this past year has been the happiest and most wonderful ever. Of course there were some setbacks but at least I’m not in that deep hole as I was before. Enough of that! Here’s the great news: I’m Back!
I was so fortunate to be able to teach for SAGA this past September. With shaky feet and a slow start, I managed to have good results and I had a wonderful experience. Seeing everyone again (after 8 years) was terrific! I’m so thankful for being asked and even happier to have done it.
The by-product was the extra 6 days I spent taking classes. It was wonderful!! I opted to take both Susan O’Conner classes the entire week! I kept thinking to myself, please God, if I’m dreaming, please don’t wake me. The Versailles Chatelaine and the Cornflower Scissors Ball. I struggled with the later, but decided to focus on the first class, The Versailles Chatelaine. I made the decision to make it for my dear daughter-in-law, Andrea Schoen, who has been working on her own embroideries. I did change the mostly blue to mostly pink colorway. My girl is a pinky and I knew she would want it that color. Just watching her face when she opened it will stay with me for the rest of my life. Now I want to share it with you. Happy New Year and Enjoy!
