Slow Sunday Stitchin'

Several months ago a dear friend and I were out walking our dogs and she spoke about how she was having some struggles with her faith.  Well, I found this wonderful stitchery that I hope will remind her that we all have angels watching over us  ~

It has really been fun working on an embroidery project again!!

Twenty Sock Started and One completed!!

Well, yay, yay, yay!!  I have been trying to make socks for years and I must have at least 20 partial sock (not sockS) laying around the house in nooks and crannies!!

I have never been able to finish one - not a PAIR of socks yet, but one sock until now:

It's a little short in the length from the heel to the toe but it's DONE!!  And, miraculously enough, it LOOKS just like a sock!!  I am so excited!!

I have to go let Carol Fun over at The Polka Dot Chicken know as I have loved her socks for years!!  Now this one took me about a week of evening knitting, so I guess I have to wait another week or so to wear the pair out in public!!

I Heard That Kaffe Fassett is Going to be in Salt Lake City Area . . .

next month!!

A friend got an email from her friend down in Salt Lake that knows how much I love Kaffe fabric and how I would love some day to take a class from him!!  Charlotte passed the email on to me.

Well, I was lamenting that I wish I could go to the 5 day, 4 night retreat, with a lecture by Kaffe the first night and a workshop on each of the last two days with Kaffe and Brandon Mably ~

This is where the retreat is being held!
My brother walked in the ofice and said he would be happy to put the cost on his card and I could pay him back!!


Here are the two workshops!!

Now, I just have to worry about getting to sleep every night for the next month!!

The one I am working on now is the batik version of the quilt pattern below.  It is called Diamond Stars

Here are two others that I pattern tested for Reeze, the owner of Morning Glory Designs ~

What will she come up next for me to work on?

Slow Sunday Stitchin'

I always love to come home from Church on Sundays and sit down with some handwork and a little quiet time.  Today I finished up two Flowers for Dorrit in Denmark.  She wanted blue or pink petals with yellow centers ~

Since I don't really do pink, she is getting two blue ones!!  I am sure enjoying playing with the fussy cut flowers!!  These will go in the mail to Dorrit tomorrow morning!!
