Welcome! If you're here for the 'Grow Your Blog' party, my post is HERE.
Today I have a couple of things I've been wanting to tell you about, so I'll do that before I get to the latest photos of what I've been adding to my rose-themed hussif.
1. Mary Corbett of NeedlenThread has a couple of posts on her blog that you might find of interest. The first one is an article about the different types of embroidery needles and how they are best used. Go HERE for that.
2. Mary also has done a tutorial on creating a really pretty beaded buttonhole edging that I can't wait to try. HERE's where you can see it!
3. Kathy Shaw has a post about some really exciting changes to her Intermediate Crazy Quilt online class and you can find further information on her blog HERE. She is so very generous with her classes (I have yet to take one, but I'm waiting for the beginner's class to open up again so I can!). As of now, the next beginner's class is open for registration on May 2nd, but I see a little note on her blog that maybe, just maybe, she might run another one in February. Oh...and did I mention that her classes are FREE (yes, you read that right!!).
4. If you are looking for the link to purchase the 'Crazy Quilt Quarterly' magazine, have a look in my sidebar. Clicking on the cover picture should (if I did it right!) take you directly to MagCloud.
Now for a couple pictures...
This is the 'cover' of a pocket that will be on the inside of the hussif. Just plain ol' embroidery - nothing fancy!
This is a smaller pocket decorated with silk ribbon flowers and some pearl beads.
Today's quote is from Bruce Barton.... "When you're through changing, you're through"
