More embroidery on black, and a couple of announcements

Before I get into the picture part of this post, I thought I'd tell you about a couple of classes that are on offer at the moment....

- first of all, Karen Ruane as a new two week online class available.  If you haven't taken any classes from her before (and even if you have!) you can check it out HERE.

- I received the latest newsletter from Carole Brungar and noticed that she has her journal making class available HERE.    Please note that the start date in April isn't current.  Some of you may remember the journal I created a few years ago when I took Carole's class and how happy I was with it.  HERE's a link to one of my blog posts about my journal.

I can guarantee you that both these ladies are wonderful teachers.  I have learned so much from them and I know you would enjoy their classes.

Now, on to the pictures for this post.  I'm currently working on another crazy quilted purse which has been commissioned for Christmas.  Thought you might like to see some of the seam treatments I've done so far....many of them are designs created by Pam Kellogg of Kitty and Me Designs, some were using the stencils that Sharron Boggon sells and some came out of my head (ouch!).

Today the quote is from an anonymous source.... "Let the beauty of what you love be what you do"

Love the quote.

I always love to see stitching on black. The colors look so vivid on the black back ground. Do you use templates and if so what do you use to mark on the black?
xx, Carol

Thanks for the class info, Karen's classes are always so great.
Your work on your crazy quilt purse is lovely.
Your quote I heartily agree with.
I hope you don't think I'm too positive, but it sure beats the socks off negative!

Thanks for the class links and I will check them out. Beautiful looking embroidery and on black it all looks fabulous. I especially like the 2 zigzag like rows with the purple beads down the centre. Very beautifully stitched.

Your other purse was gorgeous so I can't wait to see how this one turns out. That green is so lovely against the black. :-)
