Summer is really going by all too quickly! So quickly, that I'm not sure I've even mentioned here that I've got a class coming up at French General in a couple weeks (August 30, to be exact). We'll be using one of my embroidery patterns to stitch on. Specifically, the Happy Day pattern, but I'll bring my others if participants want to swap for another.
I'm gathering goodies for the kits now, having learned that everything takes longer than I expect it to.
...and I'm making little strawberry pincushions for each stitcher that cares to join us. Well, these look a little bit like strawarrots, I might have to revisit my design a bit and make them a little less long and a little more plump!
We'll be taking my pattern and embellishing the edges (if desired) with French General scraps and the sewing machine, then we'll use beautiful Cosmo floss to hand stitch on the pattern. The class is for those that have never threaded a needle before (I bought lots of needle threaders to give out too, it's harder for me than it used to be!) to those that are quite comfortable embroidering and just want to be inspired, pick up a new stitch or two, talk design and color choices, all while in the charming surroundings of French General.
It's a lovely place to spend a sunny Saturday, and we have room for a table more. Everything's provided, you just have to show up. We'd love to see you! Go here for more info.
