Cathy and I travelled to Indiana to teach at the Indianapolis Quilt Guild. A couple of my students brought projects of mine that they had previously done in class. I am always excited to see the progression of individual pieces and how they are embellished. Dawn had done my Flower Vase class as well as the Sew Your Seeds Needle Case.
I also taught my Small Bird Play. It is a fun class as you come to class with the kit appliqued then you spend your time in class layering and embellishing.Susan brought her version of my Coneflower Pillow to show me. I love the stitching she did on her piece. www.suespargo.com/kits.html
As we drove we were able to fill the car with wonderful goodies to tempt my students.
The layering and stitching of these flowers and leaves made each students piece unique.
This week I travelled to North Coast Needlers in Westlake OH. I had a full class of enthusiastic stitchers all layering and embellishing my Bird Play sampler.
It was a fun day and as and added bonus Aimee my youngest daughter assisted me and we got to spend the day together.
I gave a lecture in the evening and Sue brought her Peony Bloom and Saffron Needle Case to share. Patterns and Kits for these can be found on my website. www.suespargo.com/smallgifts.html
I have also spent a great deal of time catching up with emails and general day to day chores after being away for a few weeks. I still feel like the I have a long way to go.
I am off to Atlanta to teach for three days this week.
