I can brag on these next two things because the Holly Fairy was stitched by my dad. Expertly and creatively finished by Vonna ! I just love the whimsy of the piece she captured in the cube finishing. My mom is very pleased.
Twisted Stitcher. She has a floss tube channel, finishing tutorials, a blog, posts on FB has 4 kids and a husband and a cottage business to care for. WOW - she is one busy chick and funny too. I don't really have time for all the floss tube watching but I am going thru Vonna's starting in January and I think I'm up to April now. she is just so amusing and fun to watch.
Our EGA chapter just had Kathy Rees do a 2 day class on her newest teaching piece Highland Circle. It was an awesome class - 2 days spent with great stitchers in our chapter and Kathy is a delight - (no pun intended - her design business is Needle Delights). I tried to get a photo of my canvas but it just didn't show up well. if you google it - you will see images of the piece on line.
Not much else going on in my world. Looking forward to Camp Blanding retreat with Olde Green Cupboard and friends this weekend. A full 3 days of hooking which is much needed around my house. It's so fun to be in that National guard facility with 100 quilters, crafters and probably 1 rug hooker ! I appreciate all your comments and read them all. Hope your summer is going your way and you are getting lots of things accomplished - I would love to hear what you are doing.
