Embroidered Pillowcases & an update on what I'm up to!
I made these pillowcases for a dear friend who was my "Secret Sister" last year. I have been working on them since early December and I had really wanted to get them to her by Christmas but it just didn't work out that way. So, I got them off in the mail to her on Tuesday. Hey, at least they're done and they've arrived! She was very good to me, extremely attentive - always right on top of my posts on the messageboard. I always received a heartfelt letter in a box that was packed full of bows and ribbons with lots of care. Hope she enjoys them!
I seem to be lacking here in blog land. I have been extremely busy, honestly... seems I don't have too much to show for it though. Ah! I know, i'll have peeks to share with you from this round of our CQ Round Robin and I also just finished the siggy wedding quilt I was hired to make! I'll have photos of that for you soon!
What's coming up for me? Starting Tuesday, January 20th I'll be teaching four 2 hour classes at a LQS for a Crazy Quilt heart (i had blogged about this earlier this year.) So that is very exciting! I am prepping my kits for that, still have some work to be done but it's well on its way! 2 weeks after that I'll be starting my 8 week class on CQ. I still have lots to do for that one. I'm also taking a class for Cheryl Phillips "WedgeWorks" book. (the first one) That starts Thursday January 15th! I am a little concerned that it's a time intensive class and I have so much going on I hope I can give it the attention it deserves because I also have the CQ RR going, 3 more rounds to go! Oh! Oh! And i'll be visiting my very best friend of (eep!) 15 years in New York for the weekend of Jan 23-25! Then i'll also be visiting her for my birthday on the weekend of Feb 20-22. We're going to a comedy show and we'll hang out a little bit, i'm so looking forward to a nice weekend away, but you know i'll bring at least one needlework project ;) probably my tatting since it's so space friendly and portable.
Well, there's my update for the new year. I hope this entry finds you healthy and well! See you soon with some CQ peeks! Stay tuned...
